No water coming out of our kitchen sink or sprayer

we were camping at the Railway Campground in Williams Arizona. Temps fell to near freezing our first night, In the morning no water flowed from the kitchen sink. The bathroom shower and sink worked fine. Thought maybe air got into the line and it would work itself out.
one week later still no water in the kitchen and now the toilet won't fill!
We have an appointment with the CW in Albuquerque NM. Our propane heater stopped working so we have been using a space heater. The propane hot water heater works fine.
Any suggestions about the water? It won't flow on city water or using the pump in the kitchen and toilet but works in the shower and bathroom sink.

First thing I would do. check to screens. If those are not clogged I would undo the hose to see if you're getting any pressure under the sink. Maybe it froze and broke loose some sediment

Have you looked under the sink? My kitchen sink has the spray nozzle as the spigot. I've had the hose twist around underneath, pinching itself off. Simply untwisted the hose - water flow returned just fine! ST

Also, Make sure that the flexible water lines that allow the slide to move are not pinching also.


If the temps only fell to "near freezing" or below freezing for only 3-4 hours, freezing shouldn't have occurred.

thank you...we checked screens and no problems. sprayer hose is not kinked....slide hasn't pinched the water lines...read about a vacuum lock? we did see a connector under the sink floor but didn't know what it was and didn't want to mess with it...
too be continued!

I am trying to work this out in my feeble mind.

The lack of water in the kitchen sink, is it both cold and hot, or just one?

Do you still have both in the bathroom sink?

Do you hear any rush of air when you open the faucets?

When you are using onboard pump, are you turning off the city water?

When you open a faucet with the pump on, does the pump start like it wants to pump?

Just as a wag, has the onboard water filter been replaced?

The only valve I know of internally should be a check valve to prevent city water from entering pump.

Depending on your answers, my next step would be cracking fittings open to see if there is flow even reaching the spigots and foot valve on the toilet. If you do try that, do it on pump with somebody manning (or womaning) the pump switch.

If the kitchen faucet is the "Pull out" type where the faucet head is also the sprayer there is a check valve in teh base (Where the hose attaches to the head) I've seen them clog.

thank you...no hot or cold from the kitchen facet. Today I used a bucket and lowered the sprayer which is separate from the sink and I got a drop or two when the pump is on. Nothing flowed into the toilet. The bathroom hot and cold and the shower hot and cold are still working okay when the pump is on. We are not connected to city water because the toilet would drip even with the pump off and eventually fill the bowl. we have an appointment at CW Tuesday...I'll keep you posted!

Thank you but the sprayer is mounted separately on the counter top. Facet typical goose neck.

got to a campground near CW.. drained the fresh water tank, blew out the lines. Turned the city water on and the situation is still the same!! Shower and bathroom sink working fine. Kitchen sink and sprayer a drip here or there. (Soaked the sprayer nozzle in CLR)
no water...and the same thing in the toilet.

Is there a filter in the line at the Kitchen sink? Could be plugged? Maybe the toilet is plumbed after the Kitchen?

Good luck with Tuesday. Not being there and not being able to see and hear everything makes it harder to chase gremlins.
