Plumbing - No Water via City Water Connection

Over the weekend, I take our Cherokee Grey Wolf 26DBH out of state for some relaxing weekend. After arriving late in the evening, I try to hook up the water to the city connection. There is a problem, NO water from any faucet. I check the hose and supply, no problem. I am looking at the water connection inlet. I remove the mesh screen with rubber gasket and push the center button of the check valve and water sprays out off of the connection. The water pump was off. Next, I put water in the fresh water tank and turn on the water pump. Water comes out of the shower and but not the bath/kitchen faucet. I can't find any issue, no leaks or any isolation valves. Any ideas?
Thank you.

I think I would start by following out the system to ensure everything is in the proper position. Water heater bypass valves etc then I would pup water in the potable tank and turn on the pump and let it run until it shuts off making sure all the air is out of the HWT and open the cold lines first one at a time and see what happens then move to the hot lines this included the outside shower. Let the forum know what you find and how you correct it

I am having the same problem on my Clipper 17bh. Water comes out fine in the tub but nothing from the kitchen sink or outside shower. Pump goes on when I turn the kitchen faucet on but then goes off. Hmmmm. Help

Have you checked screen at fauset? Where the water comes out....
Reason pump goes off is because it senses pressure

Not unlikely. Debris from slipshod assembly winds up in water lines.

I would check the screens. Had the same issue this past weekend. Just a small trickle out of kitchen sink and all others working fine.

Took sink faucet apart to get at screens and both needed cleaned.

Once I cleaned and put back together everything worked well.

Just unscrewed the screen off the Kitchen Faucet and boom, I had water. Thanks so much for the info. Now I have to take a look at the outside shower tomorrow. Love this Forum. I know there will be more issues down the road. Thanks again

water leak

Hi all its me Silvestrie again,
After solving my water problem with the faucets I now have a water leak underneath the tub at the T connection on the blue tubing(cold water) the leak is coming from what looks like a fiberglass hose the hooks up to the T. What kind of clamps are on there for I have never seen one like that and how do you get them off. I am going to make an attempt to fix it myself. I need to learn how to do these minor fixes otherwise I will pay and arm and a leg at the dealer. Help!!

A photo would be nice as several different types of tubing are used in these rigs and not all are compatible with each other. As a GUESS, I would say that it is a pinch clamp and some people have had some success adding hose clamps to the leaking side. Others such as myself have swapped out all non PEX pipe for PEX pipe using the appropriate compression rings and tool.
