Question Access to the water pump on a 2016 23' International RB?

We just moved from northern California to central Washington and I'm doing my first winterization on my 2016 23' International RB. I've gotten everything prepped and ready to siphon the antifreeze fluid into the system but, I can't figure out how to get to the water pump. From what I can tell, it's under the sink. However, there is no way I can see to get to it. None of the panels seem to be removable. What's the trick? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Under the street side closet there is a door with a furnace vent in it. That door will open towards the front of the trailer. The water pump is behind it. You should be able to slip you fingers into the seem between the door and the frame at the bottom of the door.

Brilliant! Thank you so much!

I had already discovered that before seeing your post. FYI - The input line to the pump is on the side closest to the door. I used a 90 degree PEX connector with a hose clamp to connect 5' of clear 1/2" clear vinyl tubing that I bought at Ace hardware. Worked great and had no problems with the fit. No leaks. Sucked in a gallon of antifreeze fluid in about 20 seconds!
