Lets take this step by step.
Do you have water in the fresh water tank?
Do you have the switch for the fresh water pump turned on?
If all else fails, you could take a bucket and put it under the fresh water tank drain (probably under the rig), to get water for flushing and hand washing.

It would help other Sierra owners if you posted year and model number. Its not listed in your profile. Pump locations vary by model.

Don’t forget to open your hot water faucet first. I found my pump by turning it on and listening for the noise. If it’s dead, check the DC fuses first

I counted 25 FR Sierra fifth wheel models, so it would help to know which one you have.

If your model has a gravity fill, the tank will be near that and the pump should be near the tank. There are exceptions to that, but that's where I'd start looking.

Look for partitions in and around cabinets that are screwed in.
