Water pump/outdoor kitchen

2016 Rockwood 8311WS

I filled the fresh water tank on my TT to flush all the lines. I am having trouble getting the pump to prime up. I made sure the bypass and valves are lined up on the water heater. Opened up all faucets and still nothing. I then tried to air out the system by using the city water hook up still could not get it to prime up. I think i found where the pump is but can't figure out how to open the door maybe y'all might have some ideas. I thought about just unscrewing the hinges to get the door off.

Also I found that they did not hook up the LPG hose to the outside kitchen tried to reach behind it to find hose but could not find it. Any ideas where it might be?

Picture of door.

The hinge you see on the right is a false hinge. That door is actually hinged on the left with blind hinges. They do this as a measure to keep the door from being opened on a regular basis and from being used for storage. You may find your pump in there. When you do find your pump, you will notice a two-way valve on it -- one way is for your fresh water tank and the other is for your antifreeze uptake. Flip the valve to the opposite position to where it is now and your pump will begin to draw water from your fresh water tank instead of sucking air from outside at the winterize inlet.
