Few more details would help.
1- Was the water working on city or pump when you first arrived at the park?
2- Is there water in the fresh water tank?
3- Does the pump seem to be working?
4- Are any water source selection valves set correctly?
5- I assume no water at any point in the coach?
6- Any water coming out from under the RV?
7- Remove the small screens at the end of the facets and test. They get plugged up easily.

OK good.


The city water and on-board (pump) join together at a Tee somewhere. If you have no water from either source it would suggest a clog after that Tee. If you have access to an air compressor and an air to water hose fitting you might try removing the screen at a facet and use air (maybe 65 +PSI) and see if you get any air from the city water connection. If it is clogged that might blow it free. Use what PSI you feel safe with.


While at the park I assume you using city water for those first 24 hours?

low water pressure

I tried blowing with the air compressor and it seemed to make a big difference in the pressure.
Thank you so much rearbear

If you don't have a water filter, get one. At least a cheap inline Camco to filter out the "rocks".
