water pressure issues

Hi, New to the forum...thanks in advanced for the help!
we have a 2004 Pop up that we are about to sell. Never had a problem with it, had a buyer here and suddenly no water to the toilet at all and only a drip from the kitchen faucet and shower. Pulled the filter, cleaned it........waiting for one on order. Didn't make any diffrence. Have tried both tank water and plumed in from the hose water. Any ideas? Having read through several of the subjects.....our next guess is a hose blockage so we will fiddle with that this weekend.

Any sounds from the pump when you turn on the faucets? Might be able to start to isolate the location....

water pressure issues

the pump makes its normal grinding sound only when the sink faucet is run. The toilet and shower are silent, there is a drip from the shower, nothing at all from the toilet (water)

I suspect you have a restriction in the filter housing itself. Maybe a pc of debris got past the filter and into the outlet or somewhere down the line.(Naturally) You might try taking the filter canister off and disconnecting the water inlet pipes at the water heater and apply pressure to those pipes and see if that dislodges something.

Will do........I am wondering if maybe that same clog is what is causing the water heater not to light. there is gas to the pilot but when it goes to light it just goes out. Maybe a safety relay or something?

If the water heater is off, slowly open the pressure relief valve at the top and see if any water comes out. Make sure the pump is off.

Fuse for toilet?

We have no water coming out of toilet. Have checked the lines for blockage. The sink and shower that had low pressure were just clogged filters. No water to toilet at all

You will have to take the valve off the toilet and clean. It is very easily plugged.

On mine it is at the top rear of the bowl. Easiest is to just remove the commode, cover the hole with something that is disposable to prevent dropping anything in it and blocking odor. Suggest you get some Danco silicone grease (Lowes) and lube everything including the sponge gasket in the floor when you put the commode back.

Never heard of any electrical connections on a commode. Every faucet and the commode have places that can and do get plugged with anode debris, construction debris, etc and it even happens to campers years old. It is just something inherit to camping.

Has anyone mentioned the little screen mounted by the water pump?

If it has one of course.

Yes we have checked
That. We found a automotive flasher in the toilet compartment....? Seems like it is connected to the switch. It isn't a blockage because water will come out when air is blown through.

How about a picture? We're all shooting in the dark, don't know the type, make or model of your toilet or set up.

No such device on the w/h if there was people wouldn't be burning electrical heating elements up. If you have no water in the tank and the burner on your probably setting off the limit turning your burner off.

There is a thermo couple that might not be positioned correctly or it may be defective. Make sure you light all the burners on the stove to purge the air out of the lines before attempting to light the wh.
