Water Pump Fuse or Breaker??

Ok... will try and make a long story short.

After a rear inside blow out damaged our under carriage holding the water tank I decided to pull it all out for repairs and to weld more supports in place.

Due to inclement weather, this turned into a several week project... But now everything is back in place, looking good and hooked back up.

No leaks and everything working properly using the water hose hooked up to city supply.
But, I cant get the pump to come on. When I turned the main pump switch to on you can see a dim little red light it is trying to come on...but no go.
I have taken the pump back out and benched tested it with a small 12 volt battery and it seems to work fine too.

The owner's manual just says to check the disconnect switch and to make sure it is not froze up. Then it also says to check the Fuse box.

Here is where my confusion comes in. I can't find a fuse in the front fuse box, or a breaker in the rear breaker panel labeled for Water Pump.

Its a 2002 Damon Escaper 39' with Spartan chassis and 8.3 Cummins.

Thanks again

When you say front fuse box, there should be two, or more, 1 for, lights, signals , horn, anything pertaining, to the operation on the road of the coach) a second for the interior of the coach , furnace , water pump, interior lights. If none of the fuses you found were labeled for coach interior items , you have to look for another fuse panel.
Frustrating , I know , I've found fuses in about 10 locations around my coach.

Have you checked for 12v on the switch and the pump connector. There is also a pressure switch in the circuit.

Can not do a good job of helping if you do not have a meter.

Found the Fuse ! It was in the Master bedroom under the breaker panel.

That was it too... a little 15 amp fuse was my only issue.

Thanks again for the insight!

I was about to ask if there was indeed voltage at the pump and assumed that there wasn't, since you proceeded to remove it. All is well, that ends well, however and most sure you learned something, for whatever might come next.
