Water Pump Location

Can someone tell me where the 12v house water pump is located on a 2006 Monaco Knight.

The water pump is covered in detail in section 6 of your owners manual.
You can download a copy here.

However, I did not find where it is located. The easy way would be to turn it on and open a faucet so the pump will run continuously and then follow the sound. I would start by checking the opposite side of your wet bay. If your wet bay is on the drivers side, check the corresponding door on the passenger side.
Hope this helps.

it can be hidden behind a panel held in place with #2 square head screws.

Wet bay mounted on the left side slightly below the white cover. Hidden behind all the Pex tubing.

My heart goes out to you if you need to pull it out. Had to replace mine this year. Could not find a direct replacement. Found one that mounted in the same place but NEITHER of the connections matched up. Had to a order a "silencer kit" to avoid rerunning the two connections.

Good Luck

Have you checked the fuse yet? Located in the bedroom fuse panel ( inside cabinet). Had one blow 4 years ago coming out of Alaska.

What symptoms are you showing.

My pump does have an in line fuse near the pump itself.

If you have multiple switches they rely on a latching device to activate the pump. The latching device has a history of failing. The latching device could be anywhere, in my case it is right next to the pump.

Good thought. Have you tried to activate it from the switch in the wet bay?

My latching device (about the size of a pack of smokes) is in the wet bay high up on the right side wall behind the white panel...a PITA to get to.

Refun-

First off, welcome to iRV2!

Second, you should add a "signature" to your profile. It contains whatever info you want; most people put info about their coach there, so they don't have to type it into each message. Instructions for adding a signature are here.

As for the pump, I don't have a Knight, so I can't tell you with certainty where the pump may be. However, here is a link to a Goggle search of iRV2 posts in the Monaco Owner's Forum that contain the terms "water pump" and "Knight." Some of these posts may help you.

Should you find the water pump is behind the white panel, there are a number of Monaco/HR owners who have either removed/replaced the panel (to get at the equipment and piping) or modified it (to provide better long-term access). I have modified our coach's panel.

Although it may not apply to your coach, I want to point out that it is possible to wire the water pump circuit for two switches without using a latching controller. That is the way our coach is set up.

I assume the pump does not run, or you would be able to find it by its noise.

I would be surprised if you could not buy a new pump that would fit exactly where the old one is. The manufacturers don't want to force a plumbing job with every replacement. You may want to replumb with flexible lines, to reduce noise, as suggested. I did, and it made quite the difference.
