    June 29, 2020This weekend I sanitized my fresh water tank. The previous owner said it had never been used (it's a 2016). I noticed when I was initially running the water to all the faucets that the pressure would drop significantly (like, to a dribble) the longer I ...  more

      MilHash Clan June 29, 2020 You noted that the short line drew water from a glass full of water rapidly. That indicates that the valve at the base of that short line is simply in the wrong position. turn the valve so that water only pulls from the pump. Most of those valves have a p...  more

        Mike-n-Lisa June 29, 2020 Thanks for the tip.  The valve is indeed in the open position.  When the pump is running, it's pulling a little water from the tank, just not enough to keep up with the faucet when it's on.  I can close that valve and the flow stops complet...  more

      Gail&Bill June 29, 2020 Did you remove and check the strainers on the faucet? Make sure they're not plugged.

        Mike-n-Lisa June 29, 2020 I did, good thought though.  When I first turn on the faucet, the pump kicks on and the pressure is fine.  After a few seconds it diminishes to a dribble.  And when I put the supply line for the antifreeze in a glass of water, I get great p...  more

      Jenna & The ZARGON June 29, 2020 OK ... I'll show you mine... if you show me yours! ;-D  You should have at least 2,  three way valves.. the problem probably lies with one or both of those. I'll try and post some images with this pos...  more

      Jenna & The ZARGON June 29, 2020 In this photo you can see #1 the valve used to siphon for winterizing and it also takes fresh water from the tank to the pump depending on the position of the valve. #2 the other valve supplies pressurized water to the entire system.   Both of these ...  more

        Mike-n-Lisa June 29, 2020 I'll post some pictures or a link to a video when I have time to put that together.  If your valve #2 is the line coming from you tank, then my setup is simpler than yours.  Between your valve #2 and the pump is where my winterization line is in...  more

      Lynda & Mike Micikas June 29, 2020 OK you did all of the normal tests. I would replace the hose that had the sever bend in it, maybe because of the bend the hose has an internal clasped and the presure is there than as it asks for more it sucks closed.

      Mike-n-Lisa June 29, 2020 Thank you! I have a couple more "easy" tests I want to do, but what you're saying confirms one of my stronger suspicions.

      Martin and Debbie Payne June 29, 2020 Hows the pressure if running off "city water?"  
    • Mike-n-Lisa
      maria and skip June 29, 2020 It sounds like you may be creating a vacuum in the tank. The more water you pump out the greater the vacuum. Try removing the fill cap to the tank and try running the water. If it runs fine it means you have to provide 
    • Mike-n-Lisa
      maria and skip June 29, 2020 Sorry about that , provide some sort of breather for the tank or if you have one already it could be blocked
    • Mike-n-Lisa
      Jim & Sharon Ham June 29, 2020 Above are excellent suggestions that I would try first if it were my problem.  The air inlet to the tank as mentioned above is usually part of the outside city water connection, or the gravity fill port.  It you stick a hose in the tank fill por...  more

      Kevin & Leslie June 29, 2020 If your belly is screwed in, opening it up is easy. Getting it down can be tricky if you have notches in the belly, wires coming down, hoses coming down, or hidden screws. I opened mine this summer. It took me quite a few hours to take th...  more

      Dan-n-Jo June 30, 2020 Years ago I had a very similar problem with a new RV. Filled fresh water tank 1st time drained, then filled and tried pump. Ran fine then very little water from any facet. I took water feed line off at the pump and very little water ran out even though th...  more

        Mike-n-Lisa June 30, 2020 Thanks for the tip! Since it's never been used, it's quite possibly the exact same issue with mine. I'm hoping to have time to try backflushing tonight.

      Ron & Joanne M. June 30, 2020 Try removing, unscrewing the screens at each faucet to see if plugged.

      Mike-n-Lisa July 9, 2020 Hose to the tank was routed through the floor right above a metal cross-brace, and instead of routing it around the brace with the least amount of angle, they bent the hose to get it to feed back to the tank.  Replaced the hose and proceeded to run 3...  more
