I am wanting to install a winterizing suction line with some valves. I have a bin that has most of the plumbing in it including a filter canister. I can hear the pump but I can't find it. It seems it might be behind the refrigerator. I would like to T into the line before the pump with a valve in the supply line and one on the Teed in portion for a suction line.

The current winterizing instructions call for at least 6 gallons of RV antifreeze to do the winterizing procedure. You have to use at least that much poured into the fresh water tank for the pump to pick it up. It is a pain in the butt. Has anyone had to access the water pump on an 05 Fleetwood Expedition 34H?

Listening for it was going to be my recommendation. Since you already did that, I have no further suggestions.

Did you look behind the basement panel where your city water connection is?

Yes the filter is on the back wall of that compartment and the hose runs inside the coach. I hope the water pump doesn't go out. My guess is the refrigerator has to be removed to access the pump.

I just gave up and used 6 gallons of antifreeze. If I can remember this next summer I am going to make another attempt at this project. I just need to locate the line somewhere before the pump that will allow me to access a valve I install if that is possible.

It's not universal. My first RV had it from the factory. My current RV did not. But whether it is built in or not, he has to find the water pump because it will be located right before the water pump.

There should be a little access panel in your wet bay. It’s behind there. Not sure about that specific year but that’s where Fleetwood was putting them at the time.
