Water pump Palomino 356 QLB

Am I missing something here? I've got my fresh water tank showing 2/3 full on a 100 gallon tank, how long should the pump have to run to get water at faucets and shower.

I just pulled in from our maiden voyage so there should still be water in all the lines.

Thanks, Grant

I'm assuming you used the pump during your maiden voyage?
Your certain it 2/3 full ?

No, actually I didn't. I was connected to city water and didn't even think of trying the pump. I thought that maybe I just didn't have enough water so when I got home I added a bunch.

I cannot imagine it taking very long. On the 27 SBU, it only took about 15 seconds to get some flow. If the pipes were stone empty, it might have taken a minute for the high pressure switch to turn off the pump.

Did some more searching online and found a post on here where someone had the same problem. It was a simple newbie issue of the valve was turned for suction of antifreeze.

Now I need to mess with the lines that are hammering. Anyone ever have this issue?

If you mean water hammer in the pipes its because you have air stuck in all faucets including outside. Once you bleed everything it will stop.
