Unhappy No water '99 Tropical

I have a 1999 tropical 37' and house pump running with no water pressure in rv. I also do not have water supply in rv when hooked to city water pressure. Also can anyone tell me if water pump access is behind water control panel. Thanks for any help.

I don't know where your pump is but if you have a valve that goes to city water and fill tank , it should be on city water.

Yes, I know about the hook up positions. Have had motor home 8 years, isssue is there is no water going to faucets when in pump or city water positions. I can hear pump running only spurting small amout when pump running. None on city water side.Thanks

It is not rare that a clogged screen at the faucet will stop the water but seldom all at the same time. I think I would look at the winterizing process and backtrack to see if something was turned off or bypassed in the process. Check the whole house filters and see if they are the problem.

Sounds like a couple of issues here. Under city water, volume and pressure should fill your pipes and faucets without the pump even being turned on. Check your inlet connection for blockage, you might also find a check valve that is not letting water pass. Next is valving, make sure it's in city water position, not in tank fill.
As far as no pressure or volume on tank water, 1st place I'd look at is the I have any water in it? Then I'd look for a pre-pump screen filter, many units have 'em, could be clogged. Some factory plumbing has a T built in, pre pump, that allows for RV antifreeze to be drawn into the plumbing, check that for proper position. If all that checks out then I'd be looking at the pump specifically. Might hook up a temp. water supply (gallon milk jug) and discharge hose then turn pump on and watch what happens. Good luck, it's probably something simple.

Thanks for the input. All valves are in proper position. Everything was working fine . Went to fuel up and came home. Week later I walked by and heard the pump running and no water pressure in facuets. Tried city water and no water from there to facuets that way either. Rv had not been used since I returned from fueling and all worked fine when I parked it. Will pull cover from water valves and see if pump is behind it. Thanks all for responses.

No water

Thanks for all the input, remove panel and found the fill tube back flow defective. If anyone needs to know the water pump is behind panel on left side wall.
