my guess is that it is in Bypass - check the valves near the water heater and the water filter.
- check to see if you have water going into the water filter - not sure where it is on a 1809 but on my 2306 it is in the front compartment on the right side if you look at the front of the camper.

make sure you verfiy that you have water in the hot water heater before turning that switch to on or you will burn the element up - I always turn my switch off when I tear down the trailer to leave the site and then hook up the water and pull the pressure release valve open till water comes out before I turn the switch on.

She mentioned it was only the bathroom taps that did not work. There will be no specific bypass for thos taps. As has been mentioned, check for a plugged screen in the taps them selves. I am assuming it is both the hot and cold that are not functioning. If it is only one then you need to look elsewhere for the problem.

I didnt see that part - DOH - I thought I read no water - I missed this part "The new problem however is that I have no water pressure to the bathroom sink - the shower and the kitchen sink work great. any ideas??"

thanks for pointing that out

The adapter might be your problem. I have seen bad ones, especially the cheap ones that come with the trailers.
I guess first things first. You really really need to get a volt meter and learn how to use it. Start at the house checking for 120VAC and work your way to the trailer. Checking every spot you can access to see where the loss of power is.
