Question Where is my water pump

I have a new Jayco Greyhawk 31 FS and we really like it. This is our first trip and I hadn't used the pump much before we left. It spurts and never runs smoothly. Initially, I thought I just needed to make sure the air was cleared from the waters lines. When I'm on city water I usually run the toilet and cold water long enough to clear the lines. Despite trying to clear the lines running the pump it never run smoothly nor does the water flow steadily. In my previous RV's, both trailers and motor homes, I adjusted some setting on the pump and this always resolved this problem. So why don't I just tweak the pump on this rig? I can't find the blasted pump. I can hear it, but I cannot figure out exactly where it is nor how to access it. Can anyone help me?

I can't help you with yours although you should be able to determine its location by the sound. Mine is under the storage cabinet between my refrig and my dining room table

Our pump is under the drawers that are mounted on the same cabinet as the sink sits on.

Welcome to JOF

I assume that you gave the system time to fill the HWH and purge all the air out of the hot water lines. Also, once you locate the pump, check for any connections that may be drawing in any air.

Thanks to each of you who offered a suggestion. I followed the sound of the pump and found it in a cabinet under the bed. The fix I thought I could do was not possible on this mounting and in the end it didn't seem that what I wanted to adjust would have worked anyway. I will just have to wait till we get home and return to the dealer to get it fixed. They will need to address a number of small issues anyway.
