Thought we had a New Motorhome

Well we been in our ACE 30.3 for 10 days now. Most things are going ok. Small things are popping up as one might expect. Like we had occasion to use the cab A/C yesterday. Gee what do ya know, it DON'T WORK. USB/HDMI plug in cab does NOT WORK. Main slide extend/retract is intermittent - wow. Lots of piddly things as you would expect in new. All that to say this:::::: Where the heck did they hide the Water Pump. It works, we can hear it, but I can't find it!! We have a leak somewhere in the system cause it builds up pressure numerous times. WHERE IS IT???

Sorry to hear that your "Punch-List" is growing...
Try to look at it this way: you're sure to learn a whole lot more about your RV this way...
Good luck!

On our 2015 ACE 29.2, the water pump was in the bay to the left of the bay with the dump valve.
If not there, try turning on a faucet a little and track it down while it running.

What is it you expect the USB/HDMI plug to do? They are connected directly to the radio in the dash, not any TVs.

The dash A/C on our (then new) '18 Miramar was completely empty when we received ours. Of course, we took delivery in February and this was our first motorized unit, so the dash A/C was the last thing on our minds. We did have the coach A/Cs on our PDI checklist, though. When we brought it up with our our Dealer, they wouldn't touch it, saying it was a chassis issue.

We have a friend with a similarly sized Forest River Bounder also on the F53 chassis, which they also picked up new a few years before us, had the exact same problem. He ultimately filled his with one of those automotive A/C recharge kits and it's been fine ever since. It seems that neither the manufacturers nor the dealers care about the dash A/C. Taking it to a qualified repair place (e.g., a Ford Truck dealer) to have it evacuated, tested and filled is the correct way to get it working as it could have contaminants in the line which could shorten the A/C system's life.

I feel you, though. Much like a lot of others, we had lots of relatively minor, annoying things wrong with ours as well. I've fixed everything myself because the rate I discovered the problems was just far enough apart that it made more sense (time and effort) for me to fix it than spend the four or eight hours drive time (two hours down, two back, or double that if I dropped it off) to get the dealer to fix them. I tried the dealer on one of the problems, but suffice it to say they weren't able to fix it when I told them where it was. When I finally fixed it, lo and behold, the problem was exactly what I told them.

Water pump location

Just also got a new Thor MH Windsport, you should have gotten a packet with information on how to view your coach specific diagrams for electrical, plumbing etc. online. I downloaded all mine to my computer. Good luck
