    I did find the 12v. panel with fuses in it and the fuse to the water pump was good. This is a bit strange because the pump was working just fine then in the middle of pumping antifreeze it just quit ..?! There is power going to the pump confirmed by my ohm meter. I find it hard to believe that the pump just failed. I mean we have never used the pump except to pump antifreeze in the water system last winter and now this winter. We always connect to a city water connection when camping. Although I do understand that they like anything else can be prone to failure at any point..!

    Could you describe exactly how you're verifying power to the pump on your ohm meter. How is the meter set? What are you connecting each meter lead to? What's the reading?

    Good morning..!
    yeah, I found a hot lead coming off of the switch that is hot when the switch is in the on position and just placed the ground lead to the frame of the RV. It indicated 12.7 v.

    There should be some connections, probably using wire nuts, very close to the pump. You should check the voltage there and make sure the wires are well connected.

    Yeah, thatís a good idea because that pump might have a total of 10 minutes on it so I doubt itís a mechanical issue. Iíll check that after it warms up a bit.
    thanks
