I'm trying to find the circuit breaker for the water pump on an 07 Ellipse 40FD. Have found the coach breakers underneath the bed, and the chassis breakers in the left frontmost outside compartment, but none of these labeled for the water pump. I need to know the amperage rating for the CB and if necessary change it out to a 20 Amp.

Your dealer should know. Or you can call Winnie Owner Relations at 1-800-537-1885, or Winnie Service at 1-641-585-6255.
Personally, I would not replace an OEM circuit breaker with one having greater amperage.

Ready2Ride,

What are you trying to do?

The CB is pre-wired and already has everything in place. All you need to do is wire up the CB to the supplied wires. Why are you wanting to change out a breaker and possibly void your brand new warranty on something?

What is the connection between the CB and the water pump? The CB draws very little power and certainly does not need a 20 amp fuse.

Not CB = Citizen's Band, but CB = Circuit Breaker.
I am installing/having installed a macerator pump. It draws 16 amps. I was speaking with a tech at my dealer, and he said the water pump had 12 gauge wiring that would support 20 amps, but has a 15 amp breaker. His suggestion is to power the macerator off the water pump circuit to keep from having to run wires to another source of 12VDC, 20 amp. It's a brand new coach, so they are not sure yet where everything is - Winnebago moves stuff around from time to time.

Ready, I installed a macerator pump on my coach. In my case, I ran 10 ga. wire from the coach batteries under the entry step back to the sewer compartment. I did not use a circuit breaker per se, but rather an in-line 15A fuse located at the battery where the wire was attached to the + terminal.
Other people have just tapped into the big hot cable going to the generator, not far from the sewer compartment (Darn! Why didn't I think of that?!!!)
I would keep my macerator on a different circuit than my water pump. JMHO.
