We have a 1999 Safari Sahara and we cannot find the location

We have a 1999 Safari Sahara and we cannot find the location of the water pump that needs to be replaced. Can you help us out?
JA: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?
Customer: Sorry, drinking water pump
JA: Are you fixing your Safari yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes fixing myself, but I do not have a manual and cannot locate the pump
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: yes, is there a way I can get a graphic?

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Most of the time it will be on the roadside in the bay where the city water hookup is and behind that panel with all the valves. You may not be able to see it without removing a panel or you can sometimes reach up under that outside panel and feel it. Do I need to attach a photo of what it looks like?

Hi Randall, that compartment with the valves is completely closed in, without access to anything. Are you actually familiar with our particular RV
If not, could you please refer us to someone who is?
Expert:  Randall replied 8 months ago.

Only to the extent of where these are placed.........and many times you won't be able to see it without taking a panel off first. I can opt out and allow another tech to offer something, but that may take some time as some are off today I think.

Thank you for your reply, yes, I would in fact prefer to speak with someone that knows about our particular RV. I would appreciate if you had off this call to such a mechanic. I have exchanged a water pump on a Fleetwood RV which was exactly where you say to look, but this one is a puzzle.

Hi my name is Robert......

A few areas I have seen these on the Safari product are on the closet floor that is above the water tank, there is a panel that comes out, under the bed or under the false panel under the bathroom sink. It changes each year and floor plan which is difficult to recall on something older like this. I think I have a manual laying around I will take a look at that and if it gives location I will let you know.... Robert
