Water pressure question

Hello,
I just moved to a friends land where thay have a RV pad. I have connected my fresh water hose as I usually do in any park (it was working perfectly yesterday). Even though there is nothing blocking the hose and water is coming out of the spigot, I am not getting any water when I turn on my faucets. Could this just be too little water pressure? Is there something I can do to improve the water pressure? Any help here is appreciated.

Thanks

You can always fill you fresh tank and use the on board water pump.

Have you turned off you water pump?

According to an rv tech over here on some setups if the pump is left on then no water will flow either from city or tank.

Have you actually measured the water pressure at the spigot with one of these devices?

There are many reasons for not having any water at the faucets and each one has to be eliminated by process of elimination and proper troubleshooting.

Another thought... we experienced a similar situation at a park that had marginal pressure. What we found was the park water pressure was insufficient to overcome the spring in the poppit check valve in the water inlet line. We ended up using our fresh tank and pump.

Water pressure question

Hi, have you checked your filters. Had a similar problem and found it to be in house water filters. Replaced filter problem solved.

Is the hose frozen?

also, make sure your water valve is turned to 'city water' or similar setting, if you have a four way valve

I had a similar issue last year and figured out that the back flow preventer had came apart. On mine it is built into the city water connection. I replaced it for a few bucks and it took a few minutes.

Unless the spigot pressure is barely a trickle, the short answer is No, it's not the pressure. Even 10 psi would give you some flow at your taps. Most likley you have a clog at the intake screen on your city connection, a stuck check valve there, or one of the issues that others have already suggested.
