Just maybe a short section of a hose to make the inlet hose easy to blow through...do you have access to an air compressor? Maybe the tank end of hose is clogged...that's why alittle air is needed

Hi Vince. No, we don't have have a hose for the antifreeze. To winterize I pour the antifreeze in the water inlet, pump until it comes out everywhere, and let it sit. The strange thing is that a few days ago the pump was working perfectly fine, we had water in the kitchen etc. After that I have poured in some bleach and we drove the trailer around to mix it up.

Is the bottom of your trailer enclosed?

We attached a short hose, and my husband felt that there was an obstruction at first, and then he blew bubbles, we could clearly hear it. Still no water from the faucets.

No, we cannot get to the watertank, if that's what you are thinking about. Might it help at all to empty the tank and refill it?

PUMP bad.....any way to lower inlet hose end to below tank height? Will water flow on it's own? If so, pump bad.....If not, tank has something in it, maybe a piece of tank material caused when tank was drilled for fittings....there are not cleaned out after. Try to do this first...try'n to keep you from buy'n pump if not needed.

SUCCESS! I crawled under the trailer in the mud, and was able to pull the hose down so it was hanging down from the water tank. Only a tiny stream came out. So I blew it open and was covered in water, but so satisfying! Ran fine then. The pump is now making normal sounds and water is coming out of the faucets! Just not a normal flow, it's less, but it'll work. Btw, does this mean that the pump is still good?

Thank you!!
