The vinyl tubing coming from the top of the picture to the tee on the output side of the pump is where the city water comes in.
Even on the suction side. ;-)

I found out from a friend though that on some Entegras (his is a 2016), they did put a "silencing kit" that has garden-hose-ish tubing on both sides of the pump. (Unfortunately it doesn't silence the pump). My 2017 doesn't have that "feature." It would probably help silence the pump to get it off that wall that acts like a drum.

It's maddening that they put the pump--which inevitably fails--in a very inaccessible part of the coach.

Thanks for chiming in, Tap. It was a good thought...

They want a nice clean look vs having it be more accessible for the inevitable service needs.

This is due to the simple fact that the engineers do not ask the mechanics/end user of the product how to build it.
