Look for a valve after the antifreeze tees in to the intake line and where the pipe disappears into the floor to the FW tank. It might be off, also I am assuming to closed to antifreeze hose valve.

Water Pump Question, Etc.

Check your water filter and canister for an obstruction. Try various faucets and the outdoor sprayer to see if water comes out anywhere. That might help isolate an obstruction.

I don't see that you confirmed that you had flipped the pump back from winterize to normal mode.

What happens if you connect to city water? Do all the water lines run? Will water come out the low point drain on city water? If so, you can isolate it to the pump or adjacent lines and valves.

If you out 30-40 gallons into the tank and didn't see it come out of the faucets or in the ground, it's still there. A simultaneous level sensor fault could be trying its best to throw you off the right trail.

Ok, I just came accross some info on the web. Underneath the bay which houses the water filter there are two pipes the extend through that bay and below the coach. Getting underneath one has a screw on cap and one has nothing on it, but has an inline valve in the bay. Is it so that the line with the inline valve is the low point drain? What about the one with the cap? If this is so, I was told during the demo that the capped line was the low point drain, now I find a thread that says that is the drain for the hot water. Frustration is present, no explanation when you purchase, no documentation explaining any of this ! If this is correct filling the tank ran on the ground, when I thought it was overflow. Assuming this is correct, is there an overflow?

The one with an inline valve and nothing on the end is the fresh water tank drain. You can verify this by partially filling then draining the tank.

The other one with a cap is a low point drain. There should be two, one blue (cold) and the other red (hot). There might not always be two there but there must be at least one of each somewhere in order to winterize. Be aware that one could be covered with spray insulation foam or pure road dirt and might be hard to find. Many people have trouble finding these including my TV dealer!

Be sure you have studied the owners manual plumbing section. If you don't have it, you can get it from the FR app here:

Have you check the hose attached to the wintering fitting. There must be a hose gasket there. The fitting could be tight but if you don't have a gasket it sucking air. It only takes a little to cause a problem. Ne other thing is you water tank full? Open the pressure relief to see if you have water coming out. If it's no full the pump could be filling that. Hope this helps.

Thank you all, feel a bit like an idiot. I will do some serious looking today, weather will be better and I'll be able to look around. Duh...Low point system drain and fresh water drain aren't the same. Will look for hot water red drain as both of those are blue. Will do a little fill test and report back. Thanks again for the help.

Did grab the manual, never got one. Thanks.

Somehow water from the tank is not flowing freely to the tank. Maybe a kinked hose or other blockage. You could disconnect the hose and check it out. There also may be a check valve in that line. Could be stuck.

Water Pump Question, Etc.

Wasn't able to do to much today, I closed the inline valve on the pipe running through the bay without the end cap below the coach and added water for about a minute. Turning that valve did drain that water, confirming that was the fresh water drain. I'll need to turn off city water, add more water and test the pump, and go from there. Thanks again for the help, Forum is the source of tried and true knowledge.

Any prerequisite or anything else to be aware of during this test process?
