You have both valves open on your water pump intake. Close top valve which I think is for anti-freeze. Bottom valve is from your fresh water tank.

You should not have both of the valves on the left open. One is the water intake from the water tank, the other is intake from an antifreeze bottle. You should only have one at a time open. Can't tell from the photo which is which, but close one at a time and try it.

I should have looked closer, but was concentrating on the water heater only. My bad! (again)

Send a message via Yahoo to bob caldwell
Remember, these are only a quarter turn valve, not like a fauset. (Spell.)

This was driving me crazy. Just didn't think about the antifreeze valve. Closed it and now it works perfectly. Pump shuts off and pumps when opening faucet. I can't thank you guys enough. Problem solved

That's what this forum is about. We've all been new to this at one point. Hope everything else is running smoothly. Happy camping!
