No water to the bathroom

Took the trailer out for the 1st trip of the season. After connecting to the camp's water supply we got water to the kitchen sink both hot and cold, but nothing to the bathroom, sink, shower, and toilet. Looked for leaks, valves etc.. no luck. The next morning we had water to the bathroom sink but none to the shower or toilet.

can someone give me an idea of what to look for?

thanks

Sounds like trash in the lines. Somewhat common, sorry to say. It moved over night, but will never come out. Could be plastic, sawdust, metal shavings, or something else. Its a slow process, disconnect each line at the fixture, hook a jumper hose to it, and aim out the door, pressurize system, and see what come out. Let pressure off, change lines, do it again. Bathroom has 5 lines. If it is new, I would take it back if feasible.

I still don't get why people would buy a trailer without a good PDI. Water working, fridge cold, water heater, AC/heat. Our boss makes us all but camp in one before we tell the customer it is ready.

He said it was his first trip of the season and it was a 2008.

My thinking goes like the toilet problem I had with anode bits from the water heater getting sucked into and clogging the mixing valves.

OOPS missed the year model in the signature. Still sounds like a blockage. Anode rod bits, last years leaves, (just kidding). Might still have to flush the lines somehow, and I wouldn't be trying to flush them trough the faucets. You might get the fauet stooped up, and have to replace it.

Might be able to pull a valve stem out and have someone pulse the pump while catching the water and crud in a towel. Repeat for each stem, till thay are all done.

We do that at work, when we can. Takes some clean up though. When alone, I use a piece of 3/4 hose, car heater hose, about 10 feet long, and run it out the door. Most of the fittings can/should be able to be unscrewed by hand, and re-tightened that way. The 3/4 hose seems to work,and let's the garbage out. Still have some leakage, which must be cleaned up.
