Default 1993 maxim scr-fresh water system

I just bought this boat and is in relatively great condition. I can't figure out how to turn the fresh water system on. Is there a switch that I'm missing?

Usually a switch just below the counter top

It's 12v so the main battery switch would also need to be on. The switch is usually a red, lit switch. Commonly somewhere around the galley area.

The toilet does not run off the onboard water system, there is a valve in the engine bay that needs to be manually opened to allow water in. It will be a large valve type with a handle on it siiting right on the hull floor.

What is the model of the boat? That will determine where the seacock is located. In a 2700,2800, 2900 they should be in the mid-bilge just outside of the head. The seacock would need to be open an the boat in the water in order to draw raw water in. Unless it's a vacu-flush.

There might be a red, lit switch in the head for the shower sump as well. This would not be related to the pressure water to the faucets.
