Should be easy to find now Paul has posted a photo. Near the heater or just listen for the pump and the pressure regulator should be near, I don't know the layout of your van.

once found, just use small turning of the knob until the pump stops, you may have to adjust it again depending if on EHU or battery.

Happy hunting.

Don't know layout of your van. But the regulator will (obviously!) in a hose line out of the pump Assuming you can find the pump, then follow the pipes.... On mine, the regulator is  under a bench seat which is in front of the wardrobe, but it's high on the wardrobe bulkhead  and not easily visible because the lifted bench cushion obscures it unless you really bend down and look upwards - it's a few feet away from the pump which is on the floor under that bench. Not obvious!

On our Bourton this switch is particularly well hidden. I think it was installed from a security perspective, where it could never be stolen as the thief would never be able to find it.
There are two white inspection plastic discs located under the seating area, nearest the wardrobe and heating unit. Looking into either of them will reveal nothing, as you’ll never see the switch. Slide your hand into the hole furthest away from you, and nearest the wall, and you’ll find it tucked away in there. 
Obviously this relates to our Bourton, but you may have something similar on yours ?

Shown are the white plastic covers that hide the switch on the Bourton.

I didn't really want to have to go through that every time the battery had a different voltage so first alteration on our Wircester was to remove the whale submersible and pressure switch and replace it with a Whalemaster pump - pleased with it so far.

Errrr, well I confess that when I say 'I' I really mean Leisuretech NE! As I wanted the 3M filter fitting I took the opportunity to have the pump changed too. The work involved dropping the tank, removing the submersible pump then the pressure switch (inside a kitchen cupboard, fitting the new pump where the pressure switch had been located and connecting it all to the existing pipe work.

It probably is well within the capabilities of any good DIY person although the hardest bit would be dropping the tank. I do know that others on the Autosleeper forum have left the submersible in situ, but disconnected electrically, and the new pump has had sufficient power to draw water through the impeller.

Leisuretech did try a Shurflo 20psi initially but it just didn't have enough power to supply a good flow through the (very fine) 3M filter so used the Whalemaster 30psi on advice from the technical department at Pozzani who are the UK agents fir the filter.

There is a factsheet on replacing submersible pump with a Shurflo (or whalemaster or flojet) in the factsheet section.

Love you people. Our water pump wasn't shutting off. It had me worried. I have just primed the water system and must have tightened down the pressure controller by mistake when closing the vents to the boiler.  One search on here and problem solved.
