Angry Fresh water tank location

2005 Georgie Boy Landau, Workhorse Chassis - fresh water tank sensor not working. We are not able to locate the fresh water tank to replace the sensor. Anyone know where it is? The RV dealer searched the vehicle for 4 hrs and he couldn't find it either. He will fix problem when we can find the tank. HELP!

Somewhere on the outside of the body there is a "fresh water" or "city water" or "potable water" female threaded hose fitting. Locate that and follow the line to the tank.

If the dealer couldn't find it after 4 hours they should quit the business and never look back!

I know why the sensor isn't working. It should be obvious to you. Someone stole the tank, including the sensor.
That has to be the problem because if an RV place can't find it in four hours it's obviously gone.
Oh say, by the way. What's the name of that RV dealer? I think I'd like to buy an RV from them as they seem very determined. Tenacious even.

I know after about a half hour of searching I would have given up. But I'm just a quiter.

They could have at least hooked up a hose and listened for the splashing...

I have to admit it sounds unbelievable but, yes, it's true. RV dealer really couln't find the tank. And Arch, the tank is still with us - unless the little water fairies are sending water through the lines. RV is only 25.5 footer so space is tight. Don't know if we can follow lines from city hose fitting but will try. Will also take bed out as under bed seems most likely place to us. RV dealer checked there and said no but we hope to prove him wrong. Meanwhile, any info on actual location would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the laughs.

I think Coachmen bought the GBM line so you could just call them and ask.

Did call Coacmmen. They "thought" it was under the bedroom somewhere. We can't find it anywhere back there. We know it's there somewhere but how to access it is the problem.
The large storage compartment behind the driver's side rear tires has a little square door with a valve in it. Thinking about opening Pandora's box today and opening that valve to see what happens.
Anyone else with any ideas?

Very strange. Couple thoughts --

The tank on most rigs is right under the fill door on the outside, because it is a gravity feed, and straight and simple is best. So, if you have a little door on the outside with a cap that opens for a water hose, your tank is very near. Also, fresh tanks are often inside the wheelbase near an axle, because of the tremendous weight.

If that doesn't work, look under your chassis for any fresh tank drain tubes, anywhere from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch, (probably on the larger side) coming down that are NOT your fresh water plumbing system drains (usually just 1/2 inch tubing.) Usually the drain tube, or an overflow tube, will come down right next to the tank.

I agree with the other posters. I would not let the people you've talked to ever work on my rig! Let us know, 'cause this is mighty curious.... Best of luck.

I was going to suggest looking for the drain and it looks like you came up with the idea already.

Turn on the water pump and listen for it. Where the water pump is you will find the fresh water tank.

Agreed, the water pump will be close to the tank.
