Spray head beside toilet: 2017 - 2400WS

Dealer winterized our rv as it was there for warranty work this winter when the temps were dropping below zero. I "unwinterized" it. But the spray nozzle beside the toilet is not working (it was working before it was winterized). There is a hose that runs out of the base of the toilet (beside the supply line to the toilet) that goes up to a plastic device (backflow preventer?). This plastic device has a hose to the top of the toilet. Beside the supply line at the bottom of the plastic device is the line to the nozzle. There appears to be water to the device,but nothing out.

Any ideas?

Check to make sure the "on/off" valve, located on the shower head just below where the water sprays out, is pushed to the "ON" position. It's a water saving feature. Think "Navy showers".
If that's not the problem, unscrew the entire shower head from the hose. Turn on the faucet. If water flows freely from the hose without the sprayer attached, there is debris in the shower spray head. Clean the spray nozzle and screw back on.
If it's neither of these, call a plumber!

This is not the showerhead. It is the spray nozzle hooked to the vanity for cleaning the toilet. It's just like the spray nozzle you sometimes see beside a kitchen sink in a home.

Done many a sea shower in my time in the Coast Guard!!!

Depressing the flush pedal while using the sprayer doesn't work?

The nozzle you mentioned is interesting. Have you got a picture you could post.

The motor home is parked at my son's house. It will be at least a couple of weeks before I have access to it, but will take pictures when I do...

This is the one we have with the hand sprayer. It comes in quite handy to flush things along.

It is also a ceramic toilet so feels sturdier than the plastic. https://www.amazon.com/Dometic-Stand.../dp/B00HQETDWO

I tried to sell my DW the idea that sprayer was actually the bidet she always wanted. She slapped me and hasn't talked to me since.

I told my DW it's for washing her hair.

Bragging or complaining?

Neither. Simply describing observed behavior, not evaluating it.

"I tried to sell my DW the idea that sprayer was actually the bidet she always wanted. She slapped me and hasn't talked to me since."

An instant water heater in the spray line might yet convince her.
