Fresh water pump

Never used my fresh water pump on any of my campers. Needed this past weekend. Fresh tank is 2/3 full, pump runs non-stop.

Let run for over an hour this afternoon, only getting a trickle of flow.

Any ideas?

Check your low point drain and outside shower if you have them

Check to be sure your winterizing/anti-freeze induction valve is set to draw from the fresh water tank and NOT from an anti-freeze bottle.

Check the filter on the input side of the water pump. It could be loose, have a leaky o-ring, or a small crack.
