Plumbing issue

2008 National Sea Breeze. I have no water in the bathroom area, sink, toilet, shower. Kitchen is fine. Checked city water connection no problems. Tank to pump ok. Just no water for the bathroom area?

Hot and cold?
If just cold, I would suspect a linked or blocked line.


If you have manifold block, disconnect city water, turn off pump, drain water system.


Then pull valve body off (handle, stem, packing or core) and see if there is debris present or if seal has gotten mangled.


In case of the latter, take pic of valve and removed core to home depot / Lowes / ace etc and find valve that looks like it. Get it home, remove core from New one and put into the mounted valve body.


Reading back over, this is a bit difficult to understand but I can't explain differently.

Are your outside faucets ( if you have them ) open by chance ?

Both hot and cold water are affected in the bathroom area. cannot even use the pump for the the bath area. It just trickles. I have a new diverter valve for tank/city. No other faucets open. It worked great last night. I have a filter between water source and inlet, no blockage there, I have water up to inlet. Is there a diagram for this rig.

Do you have a slide between your water sources, either tank or city fill, and the bathroom area?

Does the hot/cold in the outside shower work, and where is it located in relationship to the kitchen and bathroom?

Have you removed the aerators from the bath vanity faucet or removed the shower head from the hose to see if you get free water flow?

This is very mystifying because you do have hot/cold at the kitchen and everything worked last night. I know of no rv plumbing that has any valves on the main feeds that separate the kitchen from the bath.

That was going to be my question.

Yep, I'm posting just to follow and possibly get an answer. I think this condition though would be impossible on my trailer.

For a start maybe remove the washroom faucet aerator, I've had the screen in these become plugged by minerals and scaling that I think is released from the water tank, especially when filled after the RV comes out of storage. If plugged, rinse clean then check for inline screens or aerators at the other locations. Good luck finding the issue.

+1 on removing the faucet aerator. Soak it in CLR to dissolve any solids. It that isn't the case, you just have to track backwards until you find where the water does flow and then find the blockage.

Good luck.

Update. I solved the plumbing issue I had! It was mineral deposits in the lines for the toilet and kitchen sink. I flushed it the hot water heater, manifold, and fresh water tank. Drained all the lines and still very low pressure. It was in the the hook up lines directly going to sink and toilet. Man, we're they jammed up. Thanks for all y'all's advice!
