Ok after fiddling around I still don't seem to be getting what I should.

1) HW By-pass is in the summer position,
2) All faucet valves off (shower and sink)
3) Flipping on the pump and it is running, but no water is flowing (tank is full)
4) Hooking up the shore water and water flows through the system, filling the filter canister and I can hear it going into the HW heater
5) going back to tank water with the pump on (hose no longer attached), and nothing - pump runs by no water seems to be moving through the system.

I don't see/recall any valve to switch from shore to tank water - thought it was pretty automatic.

I hope I'm missing something really simple here.

You probably don't have enough water in fw tank.

Those tanks fill very very slowly don't turn your hose on full blast to fill tank water can flow in tank faster than air can escape which causes belching making you think its full.

If u forget to turn bypass valves at all you'll get water out of hot tap eluding to the water heater full when in fact its still bypassed.
With the pressure relief valve you know.
Good point. I hadn't thought of that.

Looks like the advice about filling the tank more-slowly did the trick. That or fiddling around and swearing a lot did the trick.

I refilled the tank slower until water was coming out the air outlet and then tried again. took a minute, but eventually the pump started pumping water, filled the HW tank and gave me both hot and cold from the faucet and shower.

I'm pretty sure my FW tank was full when all of this started, but I'll just go with what works now and call it a day. Thanks for all the fast responses

Good to know you got it !

I allow mine to fill so slow it takes a good 25 minutes to fill 42 gallons
