Angry Thor Citation 27' water Pump not working

This is my first year of de-winterizing an RV and all went well with the exception of 2 things.

1) the water pump won't turn on at the switch and I can't even find the pump on any diagrams provided in the owner's manual to see if there is circuit breaker or pop off valve that needs to be reset. Also, I don't see any fuses blown and the monitor board has power.

2) the A/C keeps tripping the circuit where I have it plugged into the garage. It runs well on generator, but would prefer not to go that option when traveling next weekend.

Struggling in Austin.

the 12v water pump is usually located as close to the fresh tank as the manufacturer can put it, so that's the first place to look . Should have a dedicated fuse and you need to test the fuse with a test light or a volt meter. Visual inspection is not good enough.
A/C on a house 15 amp plug is not going to work , particularly if your using any type or length of extension cord/ adaptor , usual start up amps are 14>16.If you plan to use the A/C with the RV at the house often, bite the bullet , call in an electrician and have a 30amp circuit installed.

Probably a panel that has to be removed for access. Can you see any sign or portion of the fresh water holding tank ?
