Turn the pump on and follow the sound. I found the one in my Vibe that way. Mine is under the bathroom sink. You may have to take off a panel to access it once you find it's location.

If you are trying to find it so that you can winterize you can buy a manual pump that will pump the anti freeze through the city water connection. I bought one and it works great. It takes two people to winterize that way, one to turn faucets and one to pump the pump but you don't have to take anything apart.

Here's a pic of the pump that I got. $25.00 at a local dealer.

Yes it does. The water that is in the pump itself will mix with the anti freeze that is in the pipes.

Looks like you already winterized but do this. Open one of the faucets and turn on the pump. Follow the sound until you get an idea of where it's located. Check under beds, cabinets and sinks etc. As long as you don't run the pump too long with no water in it you won't hurt it. The pipes don't need to have anti freeze in them so any that gets pumped out won't need to be replaced.

I have a Surveyor 251rks. In the storage compartment there is a panel on the right side. Behind the panel is where mine is located, 4 screws to remove the panel. Be ready for something like that. I have same situation with water heater it is below the kitchen sink behind a panel with 4 screws.
If you have a newer Surveyor it should be configured with a winterizing kit. You want to avoid putting RV antifreeze in fresh water holding tank. You will regret it if you do. Plus you want to bypass putting antifreeze in the water heater.
Good Luck!!! I wish I could be of more help with your model.

Thanks found the panel. Haven't opened it yet. They did a great job of hiding it

Looking at some video of your floor plan. I didn't see access panel for water pump. Might have to access in bedroom below wardrobe on left. Your water heater bypass should be located behind panel under refrigerator. Good luck.

Opened the panel in the front compartment and found the pump. Strainer was clean and it was equipped with a winterizing kit! Would not hurt FR to add that to their manual.)

I find absolutely no reason for a manual pump. Winterizing only requires one person using the AF hose connection. How do you get AF from the pump to the city water connection with your manual pump? If you use the trailer pump you simply depress the check valve at the city connection until the AF comes out.

Yup that is true. I was out of time and could not find the electric pump before a December freeze so I grabbed the hand pump and filled the system. Now that I have found the electric pump I will use it. But have to admit the hand pump was quick also. Both ways work for me.
