Looking for picture of fresh inlet new model escape 21

I tried searching the forum but couldn't find. I'm looking for pictures of where the fresh water tank inlet is on a new model 21. I have spray foam underneath and I don't want just start hacking away at it.

My pump seems to be pulling air so I want to check to see if there's a cracked fitting under there on the tank.

I would check the pump filter screen on the suction side of the pump before cutting into the foam . The screen on my pump plugged and gave similar symptoms . ( Possibly construction / plumbing debris)

I tried that. I think the issue is before that.

Here are your pictures!

Fresh Water 1 is the tubing going from the fresh water tank into the trailer. The penetration is through the foam between the tank and the frame. The open tubing shown is the fridge drain line.

Fresh Water 2. This area is hidden by paneling on the left of the small storage compartment below the fridge. The propane detector is mounted on the front of this compartment. The pic shows the tubing coming up from the tank through the penetration (white foam at bottom right) and looping through the compartment into the storage/seating area next to the fridge. The green and white hose is the fresh water fill line. The clear line behind the fresh water tubing is the fridge drain line.

Fresh Water 3 shows the tubing coming out of the compartment and going to the suction of the fresh water pump.

Yes, all original Escape. It's amazing what you find in hidden areas. I've cleaned up most of the wiring from Escape but haven't got to this area. I like how Gbaglo's wiring was done - time to get the wire cutter out and redo that mess.

ps. After looking at my pic, I noticed the yellow crimp connector on a 16awg wire going to the water pump.

Escape seem to have a great fondness for crimp sleeves and uses them rather liberally
Just my observation from viewing several Escapes . TDF Texasís photo seems rather typical

Amazing how polite posts here can be. I can think of less polite terms to describe that wiring tangle.
