Trailer waterline may be frozen. The pump can't move water and shuts off. Disconnect the water line from the pump to the trailer and see if it runs. Then move on down the line. Try draining the lines and see what happens.

If the pump froze, it could blow the fuse while trying to run a stalled motor.

Where was the fuse located? In the main distribution panel or just an odd one close to the pump? Ive got a similar problem in SC but worked around it with a heated water line.

Fuse located in the pump area in a capped fuse link which I noticed ony cos the top was open exposing the fuse (10AMP). Had to remove the panel to access it. Black panel held by four long screws
