Pump is on. No water comes out of faucets. At dry campground.
 
The pump comes on but no water comes out? Any ideas what to do?

Is there water in FW tank?
Is the winterizing valve set in summer use position?
Have you waited a while? It takes a while ( minutes) to fill the HW tank before you will get water out.

If this is the first time you have used the pump this season, then yep, it may take awhile to fill all the lines.

In my current rig I find that cycling a faucet open/closed for a few minutes in each position helps.

And a few times when I couldn't the pump to prime, I had to clean out the screen at the pump and then all was well.

And it's always a possibility that your pump has failed.

We had a similar problem with our bathroom faucet. While water was working at other fixtures (kitchen/toilet/shower) we couldn't get that bathroom faucet to work. Lady at an RV place told us to take off the aerator (the nozzle on the faucet) and clean out any plastic that may have come loose in the system.


Works great now.
