HELP PLEASE! No water coming out

Hello, I am new to camping as we purchased our 1998 Viking pop-up camper last summer. Everything was working great when we purchased and when we were turning everything on before traveling we noticed there was no water coming to the sink or shower.
We have filled the tank, turned nozzles each different way and checked under the cmaper for anything to open or close. Pump is running and filter has been cleaned. Any suggestions? Could the pump be fried if it is still making normal noise and turning on/off with the switch or could it be a diaphram somewhere perhaps? also, could it be that we are missing a step? I have read all manuals and cannot for the life of me figure it out. Thank you in advance! (we are camping in 3 days and would appreciate ANY ideas before then!)

Did you hook up the garden hose to your city water connection and see if the water flows?
If the city water system is ok, you next want to prime the water pump. You probably have found the access in your kitchen area. Here is a link to prime-

Do you have a hookup on your pop-up where you can use city water directly from a hose, not from your fresh water tank? If so, hook a hose up to your pop-up and turn it on. This will bypass the water pump and determine if you're getting water to the shower and sink when using city water.

If the pump is building pressure and then shutting off as it should, check screens on your faucets. This just happened to me the other day from a build up of calcium in the lines. It had calcium rocks in every faucet as well as the toilet. This on a 1 year old trailer that had been sitting for 4 months. It had me puzzled for awhile.

Thank you to all of your ideas. Yes we did connect to city hose and it did work, actually very well. I will try the link to the primer that is listed below and see if it works.

Welcome to the forum. Have you traced the water line from beginning to end. Sounds like there may be a valve turned off somewhere. Start at the water tank. There could be a valve there that city water by-passes. Good luck and enjoy your camping trip.
