water pump fuse / wiring

The electrical panel has a slot (#4) labeled "water pump" and has a 15 amp fuse installed. But there is no wire connected to the terminal at that slot. The red wire from the pump goes toward the front of the trailer rather than to the panel. The pump works. My question is whether the pump has a fuse somewhere else, or should I change the wiring to run through the panel?
I don't want to mess with the wiring if it isn't necessary, but I want to be able to
access the fuse if it blows. No response from the factory so i'm inquiring if anyone else has this setup or van check. Thanks

Interesting. I'd pull that fuse and see if the pump still works. Doesn't sound like it is doing anything, but who knows.

I'm sorry for not being clear enough. The pump works even with the fuse pulled. Any ideas other than the installer took a shortcut?

I would be just wait to hear back from the factory, they a have always been good at call back . that way you get the correct info from the man himself.

After further testing it turns out the water pump and furnace are on the same fuse. I assume that is according to plan. The problem was in the labeling that showed each on its own fuse. Thanks for the responses.
