Water Pump Question

I have a Baystar that is 3 years old. I hear the water pump running when I open any facet but no water comes out. The fresh water tank is full. I have not changed anything with valve settings but I did let the tank go dry for a while before I filled it up. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Do these pumps lose their prime? Is there a simple fix before I change the pump out?

It sounds like you left the valve on "fill". That is the most common problem.

Denis:

The pumps do lose their prime when run dry. I had this happen once or twice in an older MH and sometimes it took several minutes of running for the pump to prime itself. You may want to try using a jug of water with your winterizing hose to test the pump, at least you would know it is still working.

Good Luck!

You can also while refilling water tank with some water put on water pump in water bay open shower valve and the pump should prime.
Pump should last as long as mine just keep water in it or RV anti if you winterize.

You were right. I hate it when I do stupid stuff. Thanks for all the responses.

Its not stupidly, its just being in a hurry to relax after a long drive and the simplest thing will mess it all up.
Most of us have done it so welcome to the club.
