No water thru city connection or pump

We Have no water through normal hookups or using holding tank and the pump. Its a 1992 country coach. Is there a fuse or something that would shut all water off?

The only fuse involved would be for the water pump. Do you hear it running when turned on? The lack of water is probably a valve. Do you have to turn a valve to switch between city and on board water? Is the water fill connection just a hose fitting or include a gravity fill spout? If you have both, then probably no valve to switch. In that case, a blocked or stuck check valve could be the problem. The check valve could be right before the water enters the pump. Another one after the pump to prevent city water from pushing past the pump and over-filling the water tank.

Are you sure there is water in the holding tank? Does the pump run? Can you hear it? If you are not getting water through city connection, then you either have a stuck check valve or your water filter is plugged up.

As the others implied, you likely have a switch or a valve in the improper position. To fill your freshwater tank via a city water connection, there is a diversion valve in your wet bay to divert the city water to the tank instead of to the coach. Check that first. If it is open, it also may prevent a proper vacuum for the pump to move water from the tank to the coach. It must stay closed except for filling the tank.

On our rig, city water does not require the water pump to be operational to have water at the faucet.

We do have a gate valve in the utility bin that needs to be opened to allow city water in. It is at the connection point for our city water hose.

If no water emerges at the faucets, your water filter may be gummed up or you have some blockage in your piping system. Our water filter is in the rear driver side basement in adjacent to the utility bin. It is mounted to the sidewall of the bin and surrounded by a carpeted box. Four screws to remove.

The only other valves in the city water piping on my rig are the faucets and toilet flush.

However, there is an electronic valve that will divert city water to the fresh water tank on our rig. Its switch is on the overhead dash passenger side.

You will likely get overflow water if you overfill the fresh water tank.
