Did you forget to turn the water selector valve from "fill tank" to "city water"?
One position on my water selector valve is marked "FILL TANK" and the other position is marked "CITY WATER/RUN PUMP".
If I accidentally leave it on "Fill Tank" the pump will run continuously and draw no water.

Assuming the pump works
1: Check to make sure there are no closed cut off valves (MY RV has one of those)
2: Make sure pump is ON
3: Open the outside shower valve (Kitchen should work but outside shower is lower) Give it a few seconds.

NOTE: if water heater is not filled already it can take up to 10 minutes to fill that depending on your pump
Home is where I park it!
