No Water To Toilet, Well, Sometimes

In my 2012 350TS, When connected to city water, I get plenty of flush water, but when on the tank, barely a trickle. My fresh water tank is full, I have plenty of water at all faucets, and I can hear the pump running. Any ideas?

A leak in the water line to the toilet?

I would guess that you have a kinked line going to the toilet. The city water pressure is enough to push it through but the lower pump pressure isn't. It is probably connected to the cold water line under the sink somewhere. Have a look and see if it is kinked or pinched somewhere.

Good idea, thanks.

Take a look at this thread, you may have a slightly clogged inlet.

X2 You have something that is clogging the toilet valve. Like others said turn off the water and unscrew the line from the back of the toilet and check.

And this problem only shows itself when you're using the pump? Because, as I said, when I'm connected to the city water, it seems to flush ok.

You are correct it can't be the valve.
Have you looked at the 12 volt water pump filter to see if its clogged or like someone said maybe a bent pipe?

While on water tank do you get proper pressure at the sink in both hot and cold sides?
Has it ever worked correctly on the water pump?
Have you turned any of the valves by the water pump?
Many questions and very little information from you.

Has it ever worked correctly on the water pump? Not sure, I've only had the coach for a week.
Have you turned any of the valves by the water pump? Valves? Where exactly would that water pump be? I've looked in the water connection compartment and don't seem to see it.
Many questions and very little information from you.

The pump will be near the water tank and the water tank will be right inside of where you fill it. I am not familiar with your unit but my pump is under the kitchen sink. The toilet connection to your pump should be under the bathroom sink very close to the floor level or down in a hole in the area. The posts about dirt in the valve could still be correct. There is lots more pressure to push through it from your city water connection. It is easy to check, I would do that first.
