As for the low water pressure- is it at every faucet? Or just specific ones?

If at specific ones, unscrew the end of the faucet and there's a little screen in there that commonly gets gunked up with construction debris. Clean it off, screw it back in and you're set.

As for the tank monitors- that's either going to be an investigation on your part (possibly a loose wire either on the tank or behind the monitor panel or worse and the wire is cut somewhere between) or you're going to need to take it into the dealer to deal with.

Unfortunately, all new campers come with some issues. Hopefully yours stay minor.

Thank you. We are taking it back to dealer. 😞 My kids will be very mad at us. But it needs to be fixed.

Yeah, it stinks. We put off as many fixes to problems as possible - I either did fixes or came up with workarounds to avoid taking the camper in "in season". I was supposed to do it over the winter and never got around to it. Now I have an appointment in a couple of weeks to take it up for a couple of weeks because I'm at the end of my warranty period.

Don't read this with the harshness that it implies.. what's so bad that you can't camp in it? It sounds like water made it into the camper - even if the monitor doesn't show.

As for the low/no pressure.. what's going on there? Is it all faucets? Just one? Is any water coming out at all?

You could likely buy bottled water and just use the campground facilities for everything else.(You can even use jugs of water for flushing.)

And yes- brand new does NOT equal problem free. A certain amount of problems are to be expected on a new unit. The severity of the problems is the wildcard.

If the water heater wasn't full when you started it fills first before any facets get water.
It takes 15 to 20 minutes to fill with pump.
The pressure relief valve on wh heater should be opened at this point allowing air to escape.

The winterization valve may be open allowing the pump to suck air.


Another question....
Approximately how long did it take to fill the fw tank?
