Water heater bypass valve, outside showerhead button, loose fitting near the water pump.

Are you on city water or fresh water tank? On tank make sure your water pump is on and make sure there is enough water in it to produce the required pressure. My fist time out I put some water in my tank and by time the system pressurized there was not enough water to maintain pressure. If you have a whole house filter make sure water has made it that far.

If you have an outside shower on the side of the head is a button make sure it is open.

Do you know where your water pump and water heater is?


Do you have a factory water filter and is the water tank full?

Like Ford Idaho said...check your water heater bypass valves an your water pump valve. It takes time to clear out the air.

Thanks folks! I called the place we bought it and they walked us through it! We finally have water! The first few times out are sometimes not fun and then you sit around and laugh about it when you're more experienced with the unit!!

Best shake down cruise site is your front yard. We still have a few laughs. Camped at the CG. Brought the bowls and the milk...forgot the cereal. Brought the buns, forgot the burgers. Another time we brought the buns, cheese and burgers...forgot the ketchup, mustard and relish. Yet another time the wife thought I packed the food and I thought she packed the food. McDonald's run later. Oh there is laughter. We still laugh. Brought all the breakfast stuff, eggs, bacon, sausage, everything. Honey where's the plates? Oops. WRITE IT DOWN!!

To fix my water issue I had to go under the camper storage unit where the water filter was. There is a black switch that I had to turn and everything worked well!! I don't know if I could have done it without the help of a service tech! I will know what to do next time, except I'm not going to turn it back so it should work !!

There has been several threads here about water. I learned when we take a walk around the CG to turn the water off. Check my conversation about my water filter canister failure. Luckily I was standing a lot away.

Tuesday morning in the KOA I was in the spigot blew out of the plastic water line two spaces behind us, it was a nice fountain for about ten min till the grounds keeper got the water main turned off.

Koa was luck that the guy next to the empty space was outside having a smoke, he walked to the office and told the guy what was going on.
I was outside with the dog and notice the commotion, hilarity ensued.

The dreaded gurgle

I had a sort of similar experience this weekend. First time using the fresh water tank. Our one previous trip we used water hookup.

Tank full, pump on....no water, heater would not fill. Bypass valves all correct. Long story short, I noticed a valve on the backside of the line going to the electric pump (after 10 minutes of head scratching) Hard to see the darn thing. Turned it on and all was well.

My old trailer did not require this and I assume I should turn it back when I next go to a water site.

I think we had the same issue. I tuned this little black valve and all was well. I wouldn't have known what to do but called a helpful technician from CW
