Water pump location Freedom Elite 23u (2014)

Hi!

I just bought a 2014 Thor Freedom Elite (used it had 9k miles on it). The water pump had been working but has stopped and doesn't make any noise at all. I was told by a friend that the water pump may need replacing but I can't find it. Does anyone know where this is located?

Many thanks!
Meredith

Not sure specifically for your coach, but typically they are located adjacent to the fresh water tank - probably within the same compartment.

My water pump is located just aft of the fresh water inlet under the U-shaped dinette seat. Thor customer support e-mailed a diagram of the water lines for my unit.

Before replacing make sure you have 12 volts to the connectors. Could be a fuse or breaker.

There is also a switch on the pump that senses a drop in pressure which turns on the pump.

Especially with a new rig, this switch could become clogged with residue from the manufacturing process of the water lines. This happened with a boat I owned. After a period of time, some kind of "slime" got into the water pump that had to be cleaned out. Boats have very similar plumbing systems to RVs, and often use the same components.

All I can imagine as to the source of the slime was something left over from constructing the boat, as well as the marina dealer telling me that post-construction debris fouling the pump was a common issue with new boats.
