Where is the water pump on a 2008 Freelander?

I've owned way too many RV's since 1992 and have never had one on which I couldn't find the water pump. Well, I know I'm slipping and I'm needing just a little help here.

This is an "orphan" 2008 Coachmen FL2600S 1 slide. The pump is plenty noisy and the pressure is low but I cannot zero in on an obvious location. I've seen a few Coachmen owners respond here and am hoping there is one that has first hand knowledge of exactly where this pump is and how you get to it.

It is an absolute crime when the manufacturer (or the company that bought out the manufacturer) -thanks Warren- cannot tell you where they hid a key component.

Looking forward to answer and moving on to the next opportunity.

My son has a 32 ft Freelander and I think he accesses the pump and some of the valves from under the bed. If I remember right there is a small access panel near the foot of the bed on his.

I have a 2008 Freedom Express 26SO and the pump is loud, but I have ok pressure. Ok because it is my first Motorhome. I went to install the Shureflow pump silencer kit. After checking with Coachmen they told me it was behind the outside shower. After taking out the outside shower, then the water works pannel, I found the pump way back behind the gas tank filler. I never did add the silencer, figured would leave it for the hot summer time to add it when I had more time and felt more ambitious.

I have a smaller Freelander 2130QB. They stuffed the water pump under the shower/tub at the back of the coach. Then covered it with all sorts of wires plus a tennis ball size glop of RTV. It is behind an 8x12 panel.

When it comes time to repair or replace the pump, I am figuring it will take an extra couple of hours in labor simply for the tech to remove enough stuff to then remove the pump.
One of the worst product design decisions since Detroit made a few cars where you had to partially pull the engine to change a spark plug.

This, in my opinion, is just one of the numerous items proving that RV manufacturers have absolutely no concept of Quality in Design. Of course I will be the one paying the Tech to do the extra labor.
