No water pressure

Water pump power light on, full tank, no water flow. RV is 6 weeks old. Before I call FR, any thoughts? I'm very new to this 😳

Does the pump run? Many different things that could cause your problem ie crimped water line, trash stuck in the pump, check valve stuck, etc. Need more info.
First, can you hear the pump come on when you open a faucet?

When I open one of the faucets in the kitchen or the head, I don't hear the pump running. However the pump runs and flushes the toilet fine.

Could be debris clogging your sink aerators. Unscrew and try running water again. How about outside shower? Does that run.

Thanks for y'all's help! Once I realized what you meant by outlet ends and building debris lol I checked the faucet aerators and lo and behold they were filled with white crystals. Never would've guessed that since the RV is so new and I haven't even run 10 gallons of water through the faucets. again thank you very much for the help!

I don't know if you have water shut off valves. If you do check them to make sure they are open.

we had a similar problem with our 2 week old travel trailer. Pump running but only water we got was in spurts, no solid streams. This was the same in all faucets. We got out the pump manual and found that we were to let it run with all faucets open until we got water. No luck just spurts after 20 mins. Finally we discovered a valve that had to be turned to allow water to reach the pump. That valve is located in the same compartments as the pump but is nearly out of site if you are looking in from the outside. It is visible from the inside so once turned and the handle pointing the right way, we got water to flow from the fresh water holding tank to the pump and through all the piping. We now be happy campers!

😜. and where would that be on a Roo? I can hear water running, but still getting air from faucet. I checked the hot water tank, and seem to be allowing air to escape when I check. If it's filling the six gallon in the water heater it's taking forever. I don't see a valve or switch by the pump......

Oh my gosh! What were they thinking...... Nothing in the manual, anywhere, about turning a switch to go from city water to fresh water tank! I found the switch up in the front corner of the trailer above the water pump, BEHIND the pipe to the water pump, through the storage door you can barely fit through to see anything. Common sense told me you probably had to turn on something other than the water pump, but the manual says nothing about it.

Summer, this is correct.
You need to stop using the manual as gospel.
It's only good for general understanding of RV systems and has nothing to do with your particular model.

We had called the dealer about the water problem and had to wait many minutes for a call back. Then the "TECH" said lets try a few things.
While waiting for the call back from the dealer we had discovered what needed to be done.
FYI the PDI did not cover this procedure.

Almost is correct, I understand they do make rather good fire starters.

My PDI did not cover dimly, and I am new to having a trailer coming from a bathroom less pop-up. My daughter who came with me, confirms that I heard him say I had an 80gal. fresh water tank. It's a small Roo, and well documented to have a 30 gal. one.
