The little nozzle by the toilet '03 Kountry Star

We have a little nozzle that looks like the hand sprayer on a kitchen sink by our toilet. I have never been able to get it to spray water. Is there a trick I have missed in the manual or is it just not working. I am ready to pull it apart and see why it won't work. Any suggestions on this subject would be appreciated.. It has never worked since I have owned the coach. It is connected to a valve mechanism controlled by the foot pedal on the toilet..HELP !!!

May be too basic but the foot pedal needs to be depressed before squeezing the handle on the sprayer.

Or you can lift the foot pedal with your toe like you're filling the bowl. The sprayer will work then as well.

Thanks #3 and #4 but I have tried that and still no water. Tried it on city water for extra pressure still no flow. It is one of those mysteries of a pre-owned motorhome. I had hoped it was operator error but I have tried it both ways. Squeeze the handle, press the pedal down, lift the pedal up, Nothing, zero, zip, Nada.... Press the pedal down or up, squeeze the handle still no flow........Thanks for the responses.... I appreciate them..

Well if cussing it didn't fix it then I'm of no help

I would look in the cabinet that its near, see where that water line goes. One guess is maybe the p/o disconnected it because it may of leaked at one time.

Maybe there is a ball valve before it so you can shut the water off to it.

There is no push open/push closed valve at the hose connection is there?
You could put a rubber band on the handle and leave the water on until you forget about it then it will magically start to flow.

The hose from the sprayer goes to the valve mechanism controlled by the foot pedal. I see no shut off, no kinks, or anything that would otherwise stop the flow. I suspect there is a check valve in that gaggle of stuff connected to the foot pedal. I just don't like to pull plastic hoses off plastic fittings. There are no leaks and certainly don't want to break that valve body on the foot pedal valve assembly. Thanks for the insight.

Hi calhyatt,
The previous posts are correct. I just tried mine and it will spray water when the foot pedal is pressed down or lifted up.

Thanks Gary, I wish I could get mine to do that.

It's not for showering! It's for hydrating one self while relieving one self!
