Later westies have a 'twin' fuse holder on the B post to the side of the drivers seat. The larger of the two fuses '25amp' I think, is the ebberspacher heater fuse the other '15amp' is the kitchen block including the water pump.......if it's the same on an early example.

Hi Gary....just be aware that there are other faults that can result in the water pump to fail to operate.
I am talking 'later' type so I'm not sure if things are exactly the same but:

1) The microswitch under the tap can fail but the more common issue is with the small actuating pin that seizes in the tap housing...this is the mechanism that releases the microswitch when the tap is opened...
Also
2) There is a bullit connector that lays in one of the storage cupboards....the connectings often work loose.

I've had both faults so talk from experience.
The pump itself may also need a good 'bang' to get it working especially if it's not been used in a while.
