Is there a Water pump switch in the bathroom in the 29 BHS?

Just wondering for those "OMG, I have to go now, pull over" moments....

No, there's not a dual switch in the 29BHS.

Most of Keystone's entry level and mid level trailers have only one water pump switch. Some (not all) of the upper (luxury) units have a dual switch setup, most don't.

If it's an "OMG gotta go now" moment, whomever is doing the running is going to have to run past the water pump switch on the way through the door and into the bathroom. If the "urgency" is such that even that slight hesitation would result in disaster, there's really no harm in leaving the toilet "unflushed" and making the slower trip back to the pump switch and then returning to "do the post paperwork tasks".....

Alternatively, you could wire another switch into the circuit. Depending on your floorplan, it may be as easy as drilling a hole on the other side of the wall from the existing switch or it could be so involved that it becomes "not worth the effort and expense. I suppose each person would need to make that decision based on what's important to them.

But, no, very few Keystone models have a dual switched water pump setup.

Our TT has 2 doors. When the slide is in you have to use the bedroom door for the toilet. After that use the other door to turn on the water pump when the panic is over. No hurry then.

We have a 2019 29BHS and no, it doesn't have a separate switch for the water pump. But, the 2019's come with the in-command system that let's you turn it on from your phone through the app. We did that with the DW on the way to our current trip.

Or, you can get old school and just use a bottle of water.

Why not add an accumulator tank to the pump? Added one to our trailer to "smooth out" the flow and stop short cycling of the pump when drawing small amounts of water like rinsing a toothbrush. Most hold about 1 liter so if you turn on the pump before departure and pressurize the system and then shut the pump off you should have enough water for that emergency flush.
