Grey wolf 26dbh water pump location

I will be winterizing my grey wolf in the next couple weeks or so. I found all the drains for fresh water tank, and low point. Think I know where the bypass is for the hot water tank. Just canít find where the water pump is. Anybody know. ?
Is it necessary to use the pump to suck from antifreeze container or can I just pump the antifreeze into the freshwater tank and circulate it like that. ?

Don't dump antifreeze in the FW tank or WH getting the taste out can take forever. Use the antifreeze suction port for the pump. To find the pump turn the pump on crack a faucet and follow the noise.

That’s exactly what I did. And found it.
It’s tucked under the corner of the bottom bunk. Right near the city and fresh water intake connections

BTW……I know there are some school of thought on winterizing. I use the air hose blowout method to force all water out and drain the hot water heater by removing the anode rod to fully drain with the pressure valve opened while doing so to get all water out. Then add some anti-freeze to the traps of the camper to sit over winter by simply pouring down the drains.

Some say not enough but it works.

That was my plan.
-drain all water lines and tanks
- empty hot water tank
- blow lines out at 30 psi
- turn bypass valve on hot water tank to bypass
- run anti freeze through all water lines and turn faucets and showers on until anti freeze is showing.
- pour antifreeze in p traps and enough in toilet to cover seal.
- turn bypass to hot water tank back on

Only thing I have to figure out now is the hot water bypass.
I know where it is and can see the valves. Just not sure how it works.
