Water pressure

I am hooked up to my home’s water. No pressure. I have verified existing pressure and correct connection to my DS25. Earlier I was getting a dribble from the bathroom sink and heard a thunk sound and no more water. In-line fuse and breaker are ok. Suggestions?

Fauset screens clogged up? I’d check there first

What is the full configuration of your "DS25"?

Year, Make and full Model #

Is there a pressure regulator in your incoming water system?

Check for an obstruction/blockage at your CW inlet screen & check valve.

If you have water in your fresh water tank turn on the water pump and see if you get any flow from it, that will help determine where the problem is.

2017 FR3 DS25. I get dribble from all of the taps. Screen filter in water pump as well in intake are clean. The water pump won't run so there's no pressure from the tank when off city water. Seems like multiple gremlins.

Fuse and breaker have nothing to do with city water. Only for onboard fresh water using the water pump.

Just a thought, you might have an air lock in the CW inlet line. Remove the screen, stand off to the side and reach your finger into the inlet an try pushing the check valve button. If you have an air lock it will shoot a steam out. An air lock will also force your pump into by-pass mode and it will not pump as it can't overcome the air lock pressure.

Try it and let us know how you make out.

DW, that resolved the pump not running. Still no significant water flow from any tap. What/where is the common point for both sources? None of the valves have been changed.

Remove and clean the aerators on your faucets.

OK, bear with me here, I'm trying to rule out possible problems. With your CW hose disconnected, and left uncapped, if you run the pump, does any water come out of the CW inlet? If this is the case, the check valve inside the CW connection has failed and just possibly sealed off the CW flow inside, but allows pressurized water to flow towards the pump an then into the FW tank. That "clunk" that you originally heard could very well be the FW tank being pressurized by the water from the CW hose and the air has no where to go. Also, some RV's have a check valve inside, normally under the bathroom sink that seals off the FW system when CW pressure is applied.

It seems the air lock was affecting everything. I now have water with the exception of the bath sink. I'll continue this avenue. I'll also clean out my aerators. Thank y'all for all your assistance.

If the bath sink has check valves hook a shop vac to the faucet. It should open the check valve. I did mine with the faucet on no effect but with the faucet off it fixed it.
