another fix

I had the same problem what I found was the fitting at the bottom of the tank (which is the water intake for the pump) was loose tightened two turns, then replaced the plastic hose clamps with steel hose clamps (SS) and my problem was solved. before I went through all that, I took off the hose at the pump and the tank, then I pulled on the hose back and forth (2 people) a few inches to make sure there was no screws into the hose during assembly, check that the strainer is tight, put it back and it should work provided your pump works.

Found the issue.
Either the factory or the FR dealer was in a hurry and cross threaded the hose onto the filter assembly.
Will check with the forest river dealer who winterised last fall to see if they will provide me with a free filter assembly. If they won't I'll tackle FR And the last case is to suck it up as we did with several other warranty issues FR has not yet reimbursed me for ( now a year in the waiting). At least I k ow I haven't spent 200 dollars to trouble shoot.
Thanks for every ones suggestions. One mans misery is another mans solution.
Closely look at all threaded fittings first and spend 1$ for some thread tape.
