Crazy question?

I am having some issues and no happy!
Is it possible the water pump is somehow sharing a wire with the c02 wires?
The water pump won't work, fuse is fine....


I did however (don't yell at me!) Cut the c02 wire (black) long story but I will just use a store bought one instead.

Pump worked on my last trip out...not sure if it was working before I cut the wire or not but they should not be related right?
Thanks!!

Any ideas?? How do I troubleshoot pump?

This trailer is brand new shouldn't be having these issues, reason I bought new :-(

I am a little confused here on exactly is that you are talking about cutting as in CO2 (carbon dioxide).

Do you perhaps mean a CO (Carbon Monoxide) detector? Or is it something else?

Buying new is no way shape or form going to keep you from having minor issues.

I would like to think the pump and CO2 do NOT share the same circuit pulling the fuse would answer that.

Personally I would not have cut the wire until a working replacement was installed.

If you know were the pump is and can get to it remove the screen bowl and clean the screen.

Make sure all the connections on the pump are tight and check the wire s to ensure those. connections are tight as well.

Oops yes Co!

And the pump is not running at all, it doesn't turn on.

Does the switch to turn the pump on have a light and does it come on?

Check the fuse first, then if that is good you will need a volt meter to find where the power stops.

OK great, and you said the fuse is fine. You may want to doublecheck that part though.

Are you connected to city water currently (water hose), or only are using your onboard fresh water tank (and it has water in it)

The pump only needs to come on when there is a demand on the water system after it is initially pressurized. Have you tried turning on a tap?

OK so the pump is working....it's the kitchen sink is not...no kinks no visible anything. I took the head off the faucet water still doesn't come out, just a trickle. Water works fine in bathroom and shower and toilet just kitchen has a problem...had the same issue if hooked up to city water too...so where do I start troubleshooting this?
Thanks again for all the help!!
Sorry for the late reply I have been on the road.

We had a similar issue with a past trailer that turned out to be a kinked water line between the frame and floor. Had to remove part of trailer belly to find it. It the bathroom is working ok then something has to be restricting the waterline to the kitchen. If it's new I'd take it back to the dealer to fix.
