Locating the fresh water tank...?

97 Eagle, 40', slide out. Currently enduring sub zero weather. Fresh water pump runs but no water. Wet bay a balmy 80 degF, thanks to a small space heater. Fresh tank wont accept city water fill. Hypothesizing that the suction line from fresh tank is blocked... with ice?

Have removed panel and see a line fitted to a bulkhead fitting on the forward wall of wet bay. Ultimately feeding pump suction thru a three way ball valve. Both 3 way ball valve handles are horizontal. Like i said, that bay is plenty warm. Just don't know where the fresh tank is physically located... behind furnaces? Just seeking ideas to minimize search time next trip into the arctic freeze... lol.

My 98 American Eagle has the water tank between the chassis rails forward of the wet bay compartment. It usually goes the full length of the storage compartment. Hope this helps.

Thanks, that's way more info than found anywhere else... including manuals... Good to know.

False alarm, however, pump had lost it's prime... no clue how it lost prime? Maybe result of freeze? IDK. Opening the right valves and letting pump suck up about a quart of water "fixed" it... for now...

Thanks again... till next time, again... lol
