No water when connected to street water

Back at our monthly campsite which has full hookups. When I connected to the street water I have nothing coming out of any faucets.

With the street water disconnected and the water pump turned on, again I have nothing. Any suggestions?

Update. With the street water off, water tank full and water pump on I am able to flush the toilet (evening saved) and hear the water pump turn on with the demand for water, but still nothing out of the faucets.

I had an inline check valve stick close once. It was back behind the sink where the city and tank water lines where T together. I wacked it a couple of times with the back of a screw driver, it popped open and flow was back to normal.

Sounds like the best answer if the toilet will flush.

Draining the hot water heater through the pipes (using low point drains) during winterization will sweep crud from the bottom of the tank into the cold water line located just above the bottom of the hot water tank. When you re-pressurize (with antifreeze or water), that crude gets into the cold and hot water pipes and can block the faucet screens. The toilet flush valve has a much larger hole that can allow those nodule bits out (though it can still plug if a large nodule gets there).

Prevention is to close the hot water tank winterization valves anytime you need to drain the hot water tank. Use the plug on the outside to do the actual draining so you can flush out the junk to the outside.

No City Water

Same problem and it prevented me from winterizing. There is a "CHECK VALUE" that is a spring loaded plastic valve that prevents city water from entering the system while the 12 volt pump is running. The problem is the plastic retainer is off the plastic valve preventing the spring from operating at a half closed position. So the city water connection is constantly closed.

The valve is on the city water connection immediately following the hose connection. The valve closes the city water inlet while the 12 volt pump is running. If the valve is closed due to a failed spring -- guess what???? Water or AIR cannot enter the system.

I replaced the WHOLE side mounted water intake panel to correct the problem. The simple correction is to remove the interior panel and simply pull the malfunctioning plug, spring and "so called retainer" and replace it. If I would have known this earlier, I would have simply screwed a nut onto the "Failed" part and I would have been off and running!!!!!!

If the toilet flushes, the city water one way check valve can't be the problem.

Those white bits in the pipes are not Styrofoam, but hard water granules and bits of hot water anode.

The problem has been solved. The aerators were clogged with little bits of calcium and shavings from the tank. I will also flush out the hot water heater when I get home. Thanks all for your assistance
