water pump

I just purchased my first airstream 2 weeks ago and I cannot get the water pump to come on. My airstream is a 2004 16 foot bambie. Is there a separate switch other than the one by the sink? Is there a switch on the pump itself under the seat cushion? Everything else works great.

If you have a 12 volt test light, that would be ideal to check if the pump is getting power. If you don't have a 12 volt test light, go buy one now.

They're pretty cheap at auto parts stores.

Is there a in line fuse to pump? As I have never seen pump without fuse. Use tester to see if power comes into fuse and out or check fuse itself out of holder with continuity checker.

Also use the tester to verify switch functions correctly.
Peace and Blessings..
