water pump wiring and new tank monitor system

My coach has to pump switches one by the kitchen and one in the head/sink room. Does anyone know if ether switch should turn on the pump no matter what state the other switch is in. On my unit I got the front switch to turn on the pump but for this to work the one in the head with must also be on. The head switch will not energize the pump at all.

I am rewiring the switch area and have no schematics to go by. I have traced all the connectors but two or three one is brown and it will show 12 volts when the head switch in the on position.

I have 4 water pump switches. They are momentary spring loaded switches and each works independent of the other. Should be able to turn on at one switch and off at another - or vice versa.

Do your switches toggle to on or off and stay in the position you push them or are they spring loaded and release after you push them? If the former, those are wired exactly like multiple light switches would be in your house using 3 way switches - or they could each be wired directly to the pump. If the latter, there is a pump controller (somewhere) which could be bad.
