My two copper washed Zincs...

If there is still water in the fresh water tank (assumption I know, but check - especially if the camper was moved - the new "levelness" may have exposed the suction inlet on the water tank to air).

Check the antifreeze fill valve. Could you have turned it to winterize by mistake when turning the water heater valves?

Thanks for the replies everyone. Thankfully it ended up being a simple fix.

I was messing around with the fittings on the pump. I unscrewed the input line, banged on the pump (for whatever reason, for lack of any other ideas?) then after I had looked at things like I knew what I was looking for, I screwed back on. I shut the valve off to the water heater to remove it from the equation, and it worked!

After I got it pressurized I opened the valve to the hot water heater and had to vent the air from it, but it worked again.

Seems to be good to go now.

What is your process for getting going? Close all faucets, fill fresh water tank at the campground, turn on pump, then open the faucets one at a time? Open, then close? I feel like there must be some order to do this.

There are several checklists in the FAQ section.
