water pump location?

I have a 2012 International Serenity 23FB. I recently tried to find the water pump. The manual says it's at the bottom of the wardrobe. Well I have two wardrobes. The hot water heater is accessed through a hinged door at the bottom of the wardrobe on the sidewalk side. I called Airstream and was told the water pump should be under the roadside wardrobe. However there is no access. There is a small storage compartment (large enough to hold all the manuals) under that wardrobe, but no access to a water pump. If there is a pump under that wardrobe I would have to partially disassemble the wardrobe to get to it.

Anybody out there with a late model 23FB International who can tell me where the water pump is. Did Airsteam forget to put in the access door?

On my 2005 Safari SS the water pump was under the wardrobe on the curb side. You pulled out a panel which was held in by pressure clamps and the pump was right there. You could not tell the panel was removable. Run the pump and listen for it. I used the area to mount a small gun safe.

The water pump is under the bottom of the wardrobe next to the refrigerator. The panel with the grey material glued to it will lift up when the wardrobe is empty.

Once that bottom panel is removed you have complete access to the pump.

Trust me, I had a 2011 FC 23 FB.
