Sink Faucet Sputtered then dried up

Filled tank with water...Why did my sink faucet sputtered then dried up? Looked for water pump switch. Is that the one next to the fuse power center? If not where/which one is it?
Thought it could be fuse #1., when removed fused looked okay, though red circuit breaker light #1 did not go on, when fuse was removed.

Do you hear the water pump running? The switch should be in the panel with the battery test and tank level gauges. Do you know if the winterizing valve is in the summer position?

The water pump switch is usually labeled as such in the switch panel.

If you didn't have the pump switch on when you pulled the fuse, the circuit had no connection to the battery and therefore the blown fuse light wouldn't have lit.

I don't know of any inline fuses in the water pump circuit.

Did you retry the faucet on city water? If not, the first thing I'd do is check the faucet screen to make sure debris wasn't clogging it up.

In my A122 a-frame, the water pump switch is inside the cabinet under the sink. Water pump and water filter are also there.

At the bottom of the same cabinet are the low point valves, and a valve to the tank. I think I had to open that valve for the water pump to work.

Which A-frame do you have?

Are you plugged in? Is the battery charged? Start at the beginning.

1.Most A Frames have an on/off switch for the water pump that is located in the cabinet under the sink.
2.There may be two fuses for the water pump: one in the converter unit and one on a wire next to the water pump.
3.There may be two valves on the fresh water tank under the trailer. Both must be closed for the water pump to work properly.
4. If none of above solve the problem, you may have a defective water pump.

On my t21QBHW the switch is next to the sink mounted on the panel/compartment that houses the pump ! It is a simple rocker switch.

Here is the water pump switch on my a-frame . You can see it just to the right of the air conditioning grate. The pump is just behind that panel with a lift up top . What model number a-frame do you have ?

Check the aerator on your faucet. Unscrew it and you'll probably find a bunch of sediment that is blocking the flow.
