What do I do? Help me please. Cold weather 0n the way.
This answer might be a little late for you this year, but here's what I did:
Sounds like you have the same problem I had with my unit. The water pump is located under the wardrobe closet on my trailer. Airstream left a trap door on the bottom so I could reach the valve that lets water go to the outside shower, the pump is located under the closet floor, but it's not servicable unless you take the closet floor completely out.
So when I took the bottom out I used a jig saw and made a large access door over the water pump. Now I can see the water pump fliter and pump connections thru the new access opening. While I had it all out I installed a Camco kit for winterizing at the same time. Next year, all I have to do is lift the access door out and hook up the antifreeze hose to the new T fitting and let it suck the antifreeze thru the system..
This new acess hole also lets me view the pump, the pump filter and I even have enough room so I could change out the water pump when necessary thru the opening.
I made the larger access door to look just like the small one Airsteram installed, only larger..
So now I have 2 access doors on the bottom of the wardrobe closet and never have to take the whole bottom out of the closet to get at anything under there..
