Starting simple...

Is there water in the tank?

If so can you hear the pump running?

If so is there a winterizing kit / valve on the pump and if so is it in the right direction?

My WAG is your water heater bypass is still on that is why you got water from all outlets! Also the Pink Stuff coming out,good thing you were in bypass or you would have filled up your W/H with Pink Stuff! Now turn the water pump intake valve to Fresh water tank and you will be good to go! Youroo!!

No one is frustrated with you. About half the topics on this forum are questions by someone new, answered by someone else who had the same question earlier.

Okay, here's what they are trying to tell you.

To winterize your unit, they had to get the pink stuff (we call it potable antifreeze) in there somehow. You don't want to put it in the fresh water tank and pump it--you'd never be able to flush it completely out. And it would be difficult to inject it through the city water inlet. So here's what they do.

The water pump can suck water from either of TWO PLACES.
  1. The fresh water tank
  2. A short piece of tubing you can dip into a gallon jug of pink stuff antifreeze
There is a valve on the WATER PUMP (not the HOT WATER HEATER) that selects which of the two sources is used. People are telling you that this valve is still set to draw from the tubing. There's no gallon jug in place so it's sucking air.

Do this:
  • Disconnect city water
  • Open a tap to relieve pressure
  • Turn on the water pump
  • Hunt around inside the trailer until you hear the pump sound. It is probably hidden behind a screw-on panel. You might even need a Robertson driver (like a screwdriver but with a square tip)
  • Turn off the water pump
  • Take off the panel
  • Look for the tubing
  • Find the selector valve it is connected to and switch it to the other position
  • Reinstall panel
  • Turn water pump on

Water problem

Larry is right. Do what he said and problem will be solved. Make sure you Hot water bypass is closed or you will not get hot water, and if you turn hot water heater on if it is electric/gas combo you will burn up element. I had to do as Larry said when I bought my last camper. When they did the PDI they couldn't tell me where the pump was at. I said never mind I will find it. Just listen you will find it. Hid some place lol. Good luck and happy camping..........

Naah. The problems just get harder. I was chasing a strange converter issue this weekend on a trailer we've owned for 3 years. It took half of Friday and most of Saturday and today to find the hidden circuit breaker and all the hidden bad grounds. (The tarnished battery cable ends were the easy part.)
