I have a 2009 Hurricane FourWinds, model 30Q and am trying to locate the on-demand waterpump. It is cycling when switch is on and no water is being used. Called dealer and they said it sounded like a leak or bad water pump, but didn't know where it was located. Called FW customer service and they told me where it "should" be, well, it isn't where it "should" be. Tried to locate by manual, but it appears that is a generic manual for the Hurricane, so no help. If anyone knows exactly where to look for it, I appreciate it. Next step is to tear the bed down, which is no easy feat as the plywood is screwed down (no storage, no lifts.) I think it may be under there,
can't seem to find location by listening. Did I mention I am at the end of a 2,500 trip? At least it's not at the beginning of the trip.
If your coach has the rear door to the mega storage compartment then your water tank is going to be under the bed. Since the water piping runs up the driver's side of the coach I would suspect the pump is also on the driver's side under the bed. Taking the plywood apart isn't as hard as you think. Just mark the plywood so you can match up the holes when it comes time to reassemble.

On my Hurricane 32A, the water pump, fresh water tank, and fresh water tank drain are all under/behind the bathroom sink. To get to my fresh water pump, I open the cabinet doors below the bathroom sink, and remove the decorative panel behind the doors. The water pump is located right behind the panel.
EDIT: There is really no cabinet under the sink. As soon as the doors are opened, you are faced with the panel which is what I remove.

Update... Project finished (I think.) Pump was under bed beside the fresh water tank. No leaks found at pump or any indication of leaks. Yesterday I checked the dog shower and turned both faucets on and then off. Rewrapped the line/shower head around the faucets. Pump inside ran fine today. Tried several times. No cycling. I think with the rough roads I have been on, somehow one of the faucets must have gotten turned just enough to drip some water out. The plywood was actually in 3 pieces, on hinges, so only had to undone one. Thanks to all for your suggestions.
Thanks for the update. Doesn't take much to get a pump to cycle. I replace the outside faucet/shower head with a quick disconnect and short garden hose so I can use it to flush my tanks if water at a dump station isn't available. No long have to worry about leaks.
