What am I missing on water intake?

I am a new owner of a 1972 Overlander. It is in very goo shape but the PO was a genius at screwing up repairs. When I opened the fresh water input I found that it goes nowhere. The hose is missing and I can't see where it is suppose to go. I am assuming the worst and thinking that the water tank maybe leaked so he removed the filler hose and vent. I'm not sure yet where the holding tank even is so I'm not sure where to look.

There should be a hose to the water tank from that fitting. The water tank is under the floor and there should be a wholr in the floor to access it. If this is like my 75 TW, the water pump should also be in that picture.

Is it possible that the PO only ran with city water and may have modified the trailer to eliminate the water tank and pump?

I have a 71 Overlander had the same problem. If it is the same as mine look under the edge of the floor out from the water inlet.
