'74 Trade Wind..broken water line, continued

Thanks to the three folks who posted info and suggestions for me. I first noticed the water problem when I hooked up the city water...I could hear it running but I had no faucets open...then water spots started showing through the carpet next to the bed. I've looked in the access areas but can't see any breaks. When I turn on the water pump I can hear air getting sucked in or blown out, I can't tell, and no water is being pumped through
the faucet..the fresh water tank is full. Any suggestions as to where and what to start dismantling? Thanks

I'd find the leak first. You may be hearing air blowing up into the water heater.
I checked the floor plans of the '74s and they are close to my '72. Here's a PDF of the water line layout. Might help you out.
