I had strange problem and finally fixed. Last night all was working fine, but when I woke up, I had no water. I went crazy looking at all fuses and panel, but still no power to water pump. Finally, I look at wiring diagram and saw that there is another water pump switch in back compartment. I flip the switch and got power to water pump. Found a leak, the drain valve was open. The strange thing - how the drain valve open and how the switch got turn off. I have Gremlins ( or piss off ghost) in my RV.

Are the switches momentary? If so there is a pump controller some place to control the pump.

You might have got it working but you have not fixed the problem. You should be able to turn the pump on and off from both locations.

This on your Winnebago Brave?
Look around your converter and 12 volt distribution for the pump controller.
Could be Bad switch

I have been looking for pump controller - no luck. Today, I lost power to the pump again - it was not the switch. Where that pump controller can be?.

Pump controllers are small. Some are mounted along side drawers. If you have some, remove them and look along side where they fit.
Could be adjacent to pump
In void adjacent to the converter.

If the water pump switches are momentary(spring loaded) you have a pump controller. If just standard ON and OFF, you do not have a controller. If Momentary, usually the pump controller is within 2 feet of the water pump. About 2 inches by 3 inches and 3/4 inch thick. Doug

If you do not have a pump controller and just 2 or 3 water Pump switches, then if ONE is ON, then you cannot turn the pump OFF from the other switches. Doug

Look at your wiring diagram from other post, It shows that the pump could be going through the control panel. Diagram sheet 2. Right side of draing 2. G-4 looking for wire JS.
