2003 Kountry Star (5er) water tank

Greetings,
My water pump works as I verified it by using the in-take tube. My problem seems to be that the water from the tank does not get to the pump. I do not know of any pipe line valves that have to be adjusted and the owners manual does not say it. I did disconnect the line from the pump, blocked it and blew through the in-take tube back to the tank but I didn't seem to get any pressure or hear bubbles. Any ideas what I must do to get water to the pump? Are diagrams available so I know where to look for a "disconnected" line? The tank is holding the water as there are no leaks.
Any help would be much appreciated. Ted

Welcome to the forum & irv2.
Coming from the fresh water tank there should be a small shut off valve to allow water to flow to the water pump. When you winterize the valve would be closed so pump would be able to draw anti, when you winterize your 5th wheel. There would be a small valve in hose line to open when drawing the anti also from anti bottle or bucket.
If I'm wrong I'm sure someone in the Newmar 5th wheel group will correct me.
If you want to post in the 5th wheel group, you may wake them up, just check the question that will appear, you know its a old thread.
May find info useful in this link.
The QT's links in my signature has some info for you also.
Let us know how you make out, enjoy the forum.

Water Tank

Thanks 007,
I have checked that valve and it is in the correct position. When I blow back on that line I get no resistance, almost like it is disconnected. I'll post to the 5th Wheel forum as well. Thanks for the suggestion.

Just to double check the valves we are talking about are turned by hand and when the line is open for water to flow the handle will be positioned with it turned in same direction as you water line if its at 90* to line its closed no water will flow.
You may have two valves of this type before entering the pump from fresh water tank.
