No water pressure without hose connected

I wonder if you guys can help me with this one. I have discovered that when we're on the road and not hooked up, there is no water pressure in the faucets or toilets. The pump switch in the midship half bath is in the ON position, but I have the feeling I'm missing something. There is sporadic air coming out of the faucets, and I've waited 10 minutes in case it was just air in the lines, but still no water. When I'm connected to a water hose the pressure is normal.

Can anyone help me with this, please?

-Barry

Try turning switch on in the wet bay. You may have a bad switch in the bath.

Check the city/fill valve in the wet bay. Your pump may have a stuck flapper valve or have lost its prime. (see previous posts)

Also check the water level in the tank. If you have air coming out the pump is most likely working.

Both pump switches are in the ON position, and I don't think it should matter if they are both on... should it?

Unless I'm filling the tank, I leave the valve in the city position all the time. Should I switch this to fill when I'm not connected to a hose and on the road?

The tank is 75% full. I agree that if air is coming out, the pump is working. Not sure why no water, though!

Barry, it sounds to me that with the air in the line that your pump has just lost its prime. My 2015 Amthem wet bay is a little different than yours so it's probably best for you to check your owners manual about priming your water pump. My pump will lose prime especially after I have drained my water tank and refilled with fresh water. Caution, I wouldn't run the water pump to long without water, it obviously could burn up your pump. Good Luck! Al

This makes sense, Al. Unfortunately, the manual doesn't have any section on priming the pump. When I google this, the instructions say to fill the tank and turn on a cold water faucet until water comes out. This really isn't priming the pump, but perhaps I should let it run a bit longer (but not too long).

To prime the pump, I would need to find the thing and then supply the inlet with water. I don't recall seeing a pump in the bay where the tank is. I will probably give Entegra a call tomorrow. Thanks for your help!

I had the same thing, the winterization valve was turned 180 deg off. Chech the valves you will most likely fix your issue.

Check that the two valves in the picture are in this position. The city fill should be up and down (vertical).

I don't seem to have these valves, at least, not in the same bay as the water tank. The only hoses I can see going into the tank are at the very top, but they look like overflow valves as the turn 180 degrees and terminate underneath the floor of the bay. There must be hoses on the back side for the pump inlet. I'll try to take a peek tomorrow when it's light out. Thanks.

They are on the other side of the coach. If you have a 16 remove the panel below the waste drain valves on the driver side. The valves Richard mentioned are behind that panel. All you need to do is turn the knerlled knobs and pull the panel toward you. The valves are behind the panel.

I will take a look tomorrow morning before we hit the road. Thanks very much!
