Water Pump Issue

2016 32SA. I put about 1/4 tank of water in the tank today and dewinterized. I got water out of all the faucets and filled the water heater. Late this afternoon I turned off the faucets, left the pump on so the ice maker could make ice and left. Came back tonight and the water pump was running. The pump body was warm to the touch so that was probably on for quite some time.

The water was still in the tank so there wasn't a leak. Seems like the pump can't get a prime but if I turn the faucet on water comes out. What would cause that?

You probably have air in the system.
