    There is a 12v pump located behind the icemaker in the cockpit (at least that's the set-up on our 40DA).

    If it's not there, turn everything else off and listen for it

    I had the same issue on a 420. It's actually a solenoid tee'd from the cockpit sink. I simply removed it and plugged the T connection. Solenoid gets corrosion and is stuck open - allowing water to flow. My next move is to clean the solenoid out with some CLR and reinstal. Buying a new one is crazy $$$... We're fresh water boaters, so a windshield wash is not necessary.
