We used the pump all weekend with no problems... got home turned it on and if you turn the faucet on, you will get nothing the pump will not come on. With the faucet's on if you turn the pump switch on and off and back on again it will start pumping then stop after about 15 seconds and will not start back up until you go though the process again. It acts like it pressurized but it"s not.
I went though and made sure air was out of all the lines in the each faucet while I had pressure and it still does the same thing....
any thoughts
Thanks for any help

Mine acts like that when the water tank is empty. I know it's a stupid question, but did you physically check the water level in the tank?

Bad pressure switch on the pump is what it sounds like to me.

If you had it hooked to pressure water source on you trip- turned the pump on before you disconnected the hose, the valve inside pump may be confused & stuck open.
Fill the water tank with your water source, disconnect hose, then turn on pump.

May take a couple times, but it will work again....correctly.

Hope you had a great camping trip.


Never RV with anyone crazier than you!!
