Water connection issues

I have a 37' 2013 Cedar Creek 5th wheel that I recently purchased. I've hooked up the water hose, but can't get any water to any of the faucets. I've tried every possible valve positions with no luck. The water comes out of the 3 drain hoses. If I turn off the city water valve, 2 of the 3 drains will stop. Further inspection behind the water control area I found that the pump strainer was broke. I replaced this, but no change in results. I've attached 2 pictures to show the configuration.

Don't have your model rv, but noticed in the last picture, your water heater bypass valve is open. It needs to be shut for use and open for winterizing. It's the one between the red and blue lines. It needs to be shut. The valves on the red and blue are in the right position for use. For winterizing, they get closed and the bypass gets opened.

Have you shut all the valves like the drawing shows, and closed the low point drains?

This is probably a simple fix and is probably a valve in the wrong position. A LONG shot (since no faucet works) is plugged aerators at the faucets.

Mark I don’t the same RV you have but it sounds to you may have your low point drains open. In this position your water supply goes to the point of least resistance which would be the low point drains.

Also if you have you hot water tank in normal operation you will fill it first before getting water to the faucet.

Another possibility is your tank fill valve is open and it is filling your tank before you get water to the faucet.

I did notice a diagram on the side of your water cabinet that may also give you some in-site to the proper position of each valve for the application.

If all else fails go online and go to the archive files for your RV and see if you can download an owners or operational manual for your RV.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

PS I for got to mention, my coach has a total coach system that my water low point and tank drains are operated by electronically. Not sure if your RV has this but if it does this may control your low point drains as well as your tank drains. If this is the case you will need to close your drains electronically.
Just another thought.

I couldn’t read the labels on you water closet so I was reaching for straws to give you a few ideas where to look.

Let us know if you get it figured out.

Mark, what a hodge-podge of plumbing and not marked well. There should be diagrams in your owners manual with the proper valve orientation for city water operation.

2 of your valves are in the wrong position. The very lowest valve should be closed and your water heater bypass should be closed and like others have mentioned I think your low point valve is also open

Problem solved, after checking all of the hoses coming out from the back of the control area I checked an area in the storage hold on the other side of the rig and found 2 shutoff valves for the hot and cold water lines.


Thanks for all of the comments.

A friend just got a 2018 Cedar Creek with the same water panel as in the picture. Question is how do you add water to the fresh water tank?

You turn the blue valve just above the hose connection to fill.

Ok thanks I'll give it a try. The blue valve lables say city and tank. No where does it say fill.
