Damon Challenger 368 water pump question


We have a new to us 2010 Damon Challenger 36 footer with the bath and a half. Ive been messing around with the rig today and cant get the water pump to work. It turns on and when I open a faucet air comes out, when the air is purged from the faucet no water is coming out. Is there a valve that needs to be turned on by the pump itself? If so I cant seem to find it. Ive been looking for over an hour now at the pump and everywhere else and cant seem to find it.

Check and see if you have a valve that shifts water supply from the hose to the tank. Don't run the pump too long without water, it can ruin the pump. I'd start by filling the on board tank. Look for the valve I mentioned, (probably labeled differently) Also, do you have a hose and valve attached to the pump so you can winterize by dipping hose in anti-freeze bottle? If that valve is open it will only suck air.

Check to make sure your low point valves aren't opened.

Well I figured it out tonight. The fresh water tank valve is located in the basement just ahead of the fresh water fill. I have no idea what i was looking for over the weekend. I almost got my head stuck in the water pump cabinet for crying out loud.

Anyway thanks for the help all.
