On the Argosy 20 I just bought, I am trying to sort out where things are and I don't see a water pump anywhere or a switch to operate one. Did they not install one on a 1972 Argosy? It has a water tank up front under the front seat but I apparently missed the pump and where to turn it on or it's been converted to a "park model". Also just found the dump valve for the tank which appears to be missing the handle. It's located in the trunk where the hoses and power cord are stored. Before I attempt to operate it, do you pull it out to dump or push it in?

You pull to open the dump valve, push to close.

In my '75 Argosy24, the pump is just to the street side and aft of the freshwater tank. The sink is on that side on mine, and I have the optional dinette so the pump is under the dinette sink. You should be able to follow the pipes to find the pump or where it belongs. My pump switch is on the wall above the galley sink, just a small unmarked plastic rocker switch.

Found it! Thanks. Was disguised as a cardboard box with extra odds n ends.
