On my last 2 5th wheels the pump was accessed from the basement storage. On my Laredo I had to unscrew a panel on the back wall of the basement to reach the pump. That was on the passenger side. On my current trailer, the pump is accessed by a door on the back side wall of the basement.

If there is a removable panel under the oven take a look. That is where ours is.

So sounds like the rule of thumb is "The pump should be close to the freshwater tank. Or not." and "The pump should be close to the water heater. Or not." and "The pump should be near the kitchen. Or not.".

Or in other words, until you find it, you won't know where it is, different RV's put it in much different places.

So true! I've had 8 now and they were all different. I've always found them by accident or followed the noise. They put them in some strange places sometimes! The Airstream was the worst! 31' Rear bath, fresh water tank in the rear bumper / storage area behind the tub. Kitchen was 3/4 ways to the front, then a pretty large living area. The pump was in the very front under the couch. 25' from the tank and bathroom and 5' outside the kitchen!
