Did you maybe deploy a Slide or Support under your unit and "Smash the Line"? White Crud is what "ALL W/H" have in the Tank after use! Youroo!!

I dont think I crushed a line from the slide, because everything was working fine after the camper was placed. Looking in the basement, I see a single cold line, and a single hot line going up to the bathroom. I believe these lines feed the shower, and T-off to the sink and toilet. I would love to trace those two lines once they disappear through the floor and see where they go.

In my camper, the wall on the other side of the shower, is an open linen closet. I'm pretty sure if I take this out, I'll see the water lines going to the shower valve. Anybody ever take a cabinet out of an RV? Looks like most of the cabinets are simply "tacked" in there by screws into plywood.Thanks

Yes took out our Tall closet out of the Bath room to make it Deep enough to use "Real people Size Coat hangers" took me ALL day to remove! They are placed "Before the Roof is installed" so I had to "Dismantle it Piece by piece as it was "Sandwiched between the Floor and Roof'! Added 5" to depth,should have been this way from Factory! Little Job turned into a Big Job! Youroo!!

Great...Unless somebody has a better idea, I believe I have to get to the shower lines. I know I only have one set (hot & cold) lines going to the bathroom, so it seems to me, the first part of solving the no water pressure at the sink and toilet, is to answer the question: Why does the shower have pressure?

What would rally be handy is to have a scope/camera which I can stick up through the hole where the water lines disappear to see what is going on there. I've seen them at Home Depot, but they're expensive.

If there is white crud in my camper, where would it collect, other than the airators, because I already checked them.
Thanks
"they always flush all their campers they receive, before they sale them"

Our dealer sure wishes he had cleaned ALL our tanks, lots of blue/black tank stuff blocked ALL sinks and toilets in 1 day, the shower kept working.
He really REALLY wishes he had cleaned the black tank, the 3" disk left in blocked the drain .

Think about this.
If 1 water line leaves the fresh water tank and goes to the pump and 1 lines leaves the pump (this would be the only place for 1 valve to block hot and cold water = ?no water at the showers either?).

Try this, no tools needed.

Turn your pump off.
Turn the hot and cold on at the shower.
Wait for the water to stop.
Disconnect the water line at the toilet (easiest place to check for water flow), no tools needed.
Turn the pump back on.

Let us know if you have water flow at the toilet hose.

You may want a helper with this. If water flows, you'll have a geyser!

I'll be getting out there this weekend and I'll disconnect the toilet line and see what happens...I'll let everyone know
Thanks
Also, I'm borrowing a borascope from work, so I should be able to look up the floor hole where the hot and cold water lines disappear to the bathroom, maybe I can see something interesting...like a mouse home!

I'm betting on white crud. I have a well and use that water for my TT and at the end of the season last year when I drained the HW tank for winterization, I was shocked at the crud that came out at the end. On top of that, my anode rod was about all gone, and that was from only 6 months of use. I would try depressirizing the water lines, open LP drains and attempt to back flush the system and see if that works before I start removing wall panels. The pieces of crud that came out of my HW tank would definitely plug a sink faucet stem. In fact, I hooked a plastic hose up to my shop vac and sucked all the remaining crud off the bottom of the HW tank before storage. I didn't put the anode rod back in for the winter as I wanted to try to dry the inside of the HW tank out for storage. I did place a piece of mesh screen over the opening to keep out stink bugs. Had the stink bug smelly water earlier last year and that required another sanitization process. Good luck and let us know what you find.

I've never pulled the anode out, looks like a simple hex bolt connection that slides in and out, where do I get a new one for a Suburban WH?

If it's a new trailer, less than a year old, I doubt very seriously if it is calcium deposits. I would go for a debris plugged elbow/tee going to the sink/toilet or at the toilet valve/faucets.
