2005 Roo 19 missing fresh water tank

I just picked up a 2005 19í Roo that was a bit of a fixer upper. It is missing some random parts and pieces and one of which is the fresh water tank and pump. If anyone has pictures of their setup, that would be greatly appreciated so I can restore the original setup or if anyone has come up with a better setup that would also be appreciated.

Back in 2005, the FW tank was probably in an inside cabinet. The one in my 2007 Roo 23 was inside a cabinet, by the entrance.
Water pump was directly across from the FW tank,also in a cabinet.
It would help if you posted which model number it is.

The only 19ft Roo, in 2005, was the Roo 19.
No fd in any Roo model number:

Did you look inside any of the interior floor cabinets, for evidence of where the FW tank was?

I have a different model Roo but I can't detect a way to remove my freshwater tank without major disassembly of a cabinet (maybe two).

Sure the tank isn't there at the bottom of the freshwater inlet and above the little drain striking out thru the floor?

I pulled the model number directly from the certificate of origin from forest river.

The prior owner gutted the interior and tried to do a cheap overhaul. Looks like the tank was under the couch. The fill port is still there just no hoses. Would they have mounted the tank under the floor?

Appears they may have re-plumbed everything.

Hopefully there's no tank below the floor but crawl under with a flashlight and see if there's evidence of one formerly there (assuming it's not there now).

With your "blank slate" interior can you put a tank where the old one was? Infill port is still there. On my 2006 (2005 production) Roo 23SS the water pump is on the port (left) side right where the city water connection is. This was behind a screwed-shut panel on a cabinet (since converted to a door). There may be clues there.

There were a lot of Roo 19s produced in that time period and hopefully another owner will be found who can share how it actually was plumbed.

I have an '05 Roo 19. The fresh water tank is under the couch. It occupies the half that is toward the front bed, with the other half of the space under the coach being the storage area accessible from both the outside and inside.

The water pump (and water filter) is under the front dinette seat by the furnace.
