Latching relay for water pump

I have a 2005 Tropical LX 370 M.H. and I am trying to locate the latching relay for the water pump. Pump runs fine when direct wired to battery but will not operate when connected to inside switches even though the green light indicates it is in the on position. Any help would be appreciated locating said relay.
Thanks.

Could also be the pressure switch? If pressure switch doesn't drop out I think the electrical circuit to the relay would be open.

Gary....The latching switch is typically wired to the water pump ground. Since the water pump draws a lot of amperage, the relay is typically within a few inches of the pump. Follow the ground wire on the pump and see if it leads you to the relay.....they often mount them on a sidewall in the water bay.
