No Water running to faucets or toilet with city hookup or water tank.

Just left a campground last week and all was fine. Preparing to go again this week and noticed no water flow to faucets or toilet, but the in door and out door showers work fine. Water tank is 2/3 full and pump comes on when shower turns on but will not come on when toliet, kitchen or bathroom sink is turned on. Hooked up to city water thinking the pressure would help, but to no avail, same problem. It is a 2010 Georgetown 379. I did use the black tank flush valve when leaving the campground, does anyone think that had anything to do with it. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks.

You may have same debris in your faucet screen and maybe in water inlet to toilet just unscrew the tip of your faucet and clean it out.The toilet maybe a little harder but cant tell you for sure how to from the top of my head sorry

The black water flush is totally separate from the plumbing system in the rig so it would not be the cause of the problem. I would suspect debris in the line somewhere. Are all the effected items in the same general area?

Not sure if they are all on the same line, but makes sense. I will add that the water filter was full of debris and in need of a change. I have removed it but still no change. Water pressure in the showers is great, but little to nothing anywhere else. Will check for debris. Thanks.

Hmm, maybe a tedious job but I would be inclined to disconnect the line coming out of the pump to the system then figure out a way to apply compressed air to each faucet to back flush the system. No more than about 50lbs pressure. It would require making some fittings to attach to the faucets or directly to the lines to the faucets by unscrewing them under each sink. Place a container on the end of the line to see what comes out with the water that is in the line. If there is a lot of debris in the filter it stands to reason there may be more that is clogging your lines somewhere else.

Well that was it. Debris in the lines. I just emptied the fresh water tank, changed the water filter. disconnected the faucet screens and let good clean water run through the system. The toilet was a little more difficult, had to pull it, disconnect the valve off the back and clean it multiple times with water and compressed air. The debris appeared to be tiny rocks and sawdust, sand and even some plastic shavings. Makes me think it could be from construction at FR given it is a 2010 model and it finally collected enough to shut things down. Or, just got back from the Outer Banks of NC and campground may have some sand in their water connections. Probably a combination of both. Anyway, thanks so much for the great advice from you guys, this forum never lets me down. Safe travels my friends.

Thanks.

Y'all people keep some late hours !!

It shows the 1st post @ 12:13a, and the problem fixed @ 2:43a. I can understand NWJeeper responding from the west coast, but most others are on the East Coast.

More power to y'all.
