hi all. last weekends trip I found I no longer have water to the outside shower (hot or cold) both handles turn but the water pump never kicks on and if the lines are already pressurized still nothing. assuming this is a kinked hose somewhere but any tips on where to start would be great. For what its worth I had water to the unit last trip so I know its a new problem and its not a lack of pressure but water all together.


If it moves and it shouldn't..... duct tape
if it doesn't move and it should.....WD40
if all else fails .....BFH

Take your shower head hose off and make sure it isn't clogged with debris anywhere.

Any chance you forgot to open up the shut off valve at the shower head?

If you have a quick disconnect for the hose, make sure it is fully inserted.

sounds like something is clogging it. If that doesn't work, disconnect the house from the faucet and see if you are getting water from there also.

Do you have in-line shut off valves for your outside shower lines? My rig does. Has someone closed the valves?

If it's a kinked shower hose, (and it's the type where the connection in inside where you can't access it from the shower box) you need to figure out where to access the hose from inside the RV.

My outside shower has a 1/8 turn on the actual water spray head (a twist ring on the sprayer) to turn rhe flow on and off. Certainly isnt marked, you just have to know it is there. Try twisting the bezel at the shower head to see if it is shut off. Be sure to point it away from yourself....dont ask how I know about that.

“hi all. last weekends trip I found I no longer have water to the outside shower”

So when you sanitized the fresh water system prior to your trip departure, the outside shower worked well?
