New to me Pace Arrow and some help

I recently bought a Pace Arrow 36b I believe. I have done a lot of stuff that I felt I should to make sure I was current on everything...all the fluids, all the filters, new shocks, sterilize the on-board tanks and flush the water system. And that is where I hit a snag. There are three toggles that seem to deal with the on-board water pump. The first is at the water hook up, the second is at the vanity in the bathroom and the third is on the range hood. The one on the range hood is the only one that is marked but I am pretty sure the others have something to do with it.

I filled the water tank but am unable to get any of these switches to lock open or turn on the pump. Tomorrow I will start at the pump and see if it is getting power but figured someone out there might be able to give some other tips as well.

Any input would be great. Thanks in advance.

RR

Welcome!

What year PA?
BKM: If you put your coach info in your signature makes it easior for you and others both.

These multiple switches do indeed enable the water pump. Once enabled it will start/stop when a faucet is opened/closed, dropping the pressure in the system, Additionally there is probably another switch on a main control panel or controls area as well - where your holding tang indicators and such are.

Water pump runs from 12 volts - are batteries charged and ok? Is the 12 volt system turned on? Fuse?

Water pumps do go bad - I just replaced mine. Had voltage to the pump, but would not run, new pump was the fix. But check all else before going for the pump.

My lever is missing (since replaced) at the brass valve showing in the picture but you can see the outlines for bypass and fill, the lever needs to be in the bypass mode not fill or the electric pump will only pump air not water. Check and see if the instructions are on the back of your door as shown in picture.

It is a 1997 vision. I got up with all the intentions of checking out the pump but a cold smashed me last light and I am out for the day. Thanks for the responses.

In your bedroom there is a square black box for dc fuses remove the cover and one of the fuses should be labled water pump. In the photo from john's post the amber light should light when the sw is turned on.

hope I did not create any confusion the gold spot is a broken switch valve, I took new pictures today

this picture with valve in everyday position ready to use indicator light top right in switch showing pump off




This picture shows the lever in the fill tank position



This one shows switch light on power to pump but with the lever in the fill position nothing gets pumped in the unit.

Thanks for all the replies. I just started testing switches since there was power to the pump and found a switch that had one of the connections off. Looks as though that fixed it all. I guess start small then work up.

Thank you for the update, they are just as important as the question.

Pace Arrow uses a latching relay for the water pump. that way you can turn on or turn off the pump at any switch. Start by checking this relay.
they were subject to failure.

The relay is a intellitec. It is square, about 4 by 4 inches. If you have the kitchen on the curb side, on the left as you enter, I believe you will find the relay mounted on the floor inside the kitchen cabinets.
