New to me 1984 Pace Arrow and some q's

Just got a 1984 Pace Arrow 29v and can't find the nonfunctioning fresh water pump. Have looked in all of the usual places to no avail. Anyone know where it is? Also is there another fuel filter beside the one on the carb? Had to rig it with a gas can and a siphon hose sitting in the passener seat to get it home. Already replaced the fuel pump and the carb fuel filter. It will run for about 20 seconds and then quit pumping fuel. Any help is appreciated!

You will find close to the front of the Rear Axle Housing, an Electric Fuel Pump mounted close to the center. The on/off switch should be on the left side of the steering column. I forgot where the fresh water pump is, maybe someone else can chime in, Good Luck, Happy trails & travel safe.

On my 90 Pace Arrow the water pump was in the last outside compartment on the passenger side under a board cover to the front of this compartment. This is also where you drained the fresh water tank and could fill it. There was also a inline fuel filter on the fram rail right behind the steps. A real pain to get to. I use to change this filter at least 1 or 2 times a year. It was to small a filter I thought but the only filter I could find that had a 1/2 inch inlet and outlet.

Thanks fellows! Also, does anyone know where the switch is to run the coach off of the batteries? I get power when it is plugged in but not otherwise. Also what are the three switches in the bathroom?

Thank you all for your help! I think I figured out the battery power issue-some of these had manual switches on the control panel inside the door. We'll see tonight. Now if I can just get fuel to the carb.

If your using a Chevy/GMC P30 chassis (454 chevy V-8), then download the GM Motorhome Service manual from http://bdub.net/manuals/P30/P30.pdf.
It contains an in depth discussion about the fuel system.
As noted in that document:
GM did not add an electric fuel pump to a stock chassis until 1985 1/2.
They did recommend adding an electric fuel pump to a 454 based chassis prior to 1985 1/2. They also recommended power to the fuel pump be routed via a oil pressure cutoff saafety switch. Hookup, pressures, additional filters, etc. are all contained in that manual. There is no telling what changes have been done to your chassis.

fresh water pump

In my 84 pace arrow the fresh water pump is in the bathroom under the sink. You have to make an access hole to get to it.

Thanks to everyone for their help! Found the water pump under the drawers in the kitchen. If anyone who is running a p30 and hasnt downloaded the p30 service manual that Dave78chief recommended above you should. It shows everything about these chassis.
