2016 Fleetwood 35K Water Pump Fuse?

Just after showering last night, the water pump stopped working. It's fourteen degrees outside right now, so I haven't gone out to check if there's power to the pump (the light does light up on the switches in the RV).

However, I thought I'd get a jump start on troubleshooting while it warms up to a balmy 40ish degrees by asking the questions:

Is there a fuse to the water pump? If so, where?

Try the fuse box inside. Mine is in the middle 1/2 bath.
Or the Battery control center. Big black box with much wiring.
Also the microwsitch inside the pump is too light duty and burns out easily. Replaceable.

Found the fuse, in the Illumaplex panel (behind the bedroom TV). Good there.

Turns out the pressure switch on the pump itself needed a little agitation to get unstuck. Pump works.

But, since it was going out, seemed like a good time to go ahead and replace the pump - took less than 15 minutes.

Or water in pump frozen?

The pressure switch is a under rated micro switch for amps. I've replaced it several times. Took switch out, looked up the part number, bought several on Ebay.
Then I got tired of replacing micro.
So I bought a heavy duty 30+ amp automotive relay. Now the underrated microswitch powers the heavy duty relay that powers the motor.
My fix was a few dollars versus a new pump for $50+.
