Make sure you have enough water in the tank or city water hooked up. A pump will run and suck air if the level is low. it could force water to the sink, etc, but not the shower.

Are your valves for the water pump set correctly? Remote possibility someone installed a shut-off valve between the pump and shower.

Could be the pump is getting weak/leaking internally and can't build enough pressure.

Make sure the shower head is not clogged. Remove it from the hose and try again.

How do I prepare my travel trailer water systems for winter so that they do not freeze


The first thing to do is to drain the fresh water tank. Drain the hot water heater. Install the RV antifreeze by allowing the water pump to be pumped into the water lines by opening the valve for this process. Open each water valve on all the sinks and the toilet valve as the RV antifreeze is being sucked into the water system and run until the color changes to the color of the antifreeze. Allow each trap to have antifreeze in it also, sinks, shower drain etc. Remove the inline water filter if one is installed and install the bypass plug in its place.

I actually am not able to get rid of the antifreeze taste from the water system so I blow air into the hot water tank drain at a low pressure until all the valve at each place water is controlled. Do not forget the outside sprayer and the shower hose and the shower head.

I allow the pressure to build up to 20 psi or so and then go into the unit and open each faucet until all the water is pushed out of the lines. Then I dump antifreeze into each P trap. Do not use the antifreeze used in the engine cooling system but the non toxic type made especially for RV water systems.

We added anti freeze into our water hold tank. There is a pink film on the bottom of the tank. How do we clean the film out of the tank?


problem is there is an RV for your system. you will need to do the following.
Drain all holding tanks, fresh water and sewage
  1. Attach garden hose to fresh water fill and fill tank.
  2. Turn on pump switch and open cold water side of all faucet/ shower fixtures. Leave open until water runs clear. Repeat for hot water side.
  3. Flush toilet until clear water runs into bowl.
  4. Dump tanks again.
  5. Sanitize water system. use a water sanitizer
  6. If a water filter is installed, drain lines, remove filter assembly, clean and reinstall with new filter.
  7. When ready to use the water heater, turn by-pass valve to open position to allow water to enter and fill the hot water heater tank.

How do I winterize my 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 32 RLs


Go to an RV parts store for a winterizing bypass kit for the water heater. Use POTABLE RV antifreeze and follow the instructions on the bottle. Drain all the water out of the water tank. Install the bypass kit on the water heater if it doesn't already have one. Put the water heater in the bypass mode. Add the antifreeze to the water tank. Open every water faucet including the shower head one at a time until antifreeze is present. Do this for hot and cold on every faucet. Once that is done, turn off the water pump and open all the faucets. That's all there is to it. Rember... DO NOT use automotive antifreeze. It will kill you.

When connecting the water to the city water connection it filled my fresh water tank. Is that normal?


Probable cause would be a leaking check valve in the pump.

On the RV the city water and discharge from the fresh water pump are tied together. When on city water the discharge of the pump will have city water pressure on it. If the internal check valve on the pump is leaking, water will flow through the pump backwards and into your fresh water tank.

How to turn up the hot water heater


Unfortunately most RV hot water heaters DO NOT have a heat adjustment on them. Remember it is only (usually) a 6 gallon tank. The best suggestion I to use less cold water when mixing the water and remember to shut off the water in between soaping up and rinsing off. Google "navy showers" and you should find more info!

Why don't I have water pressure on the hot water side of any faucets


Most class a mtorhomes have water valves in your water fill bay that have controls for all faucets. There is separate one for hot and cold.
the hot would be turned off for storage to allow you to drain the hot water heater for storage.
there may be hot water valve for all faucets or one valvefor each faucet.

Adjust water temperature


It is possible that there is an open valve on the back of the water heater which is allowing the hot and cold to mix. Locate the back of the water heater. You will see a water line going into the bottom of the water heater. That is cold water in and there will be a valve on that line. It should be open (The handle inline with the direction of the pipe). At the tope there will be another pipe coming out. That is the hot water out. It may or may not have a valve but if it does make sure that it is open. Then there will be a water line connecting the top and bottom water lines and it will have a valve in it. Make sure that the valve in this line is closed. That is a winterizing bypass valve. If this does not correct the problem let me know and I will give you more steps to consider.

No hot water flow through faucets


At the back of the water heater there will be a series of valves. One on the bottom, sometimes one on the top and then one in a line that connects the top to the bottom lines. Make sure the middle valve is closed and the top and bottom valves are open. If there is not a valve on the top that can be manually opened and closed then there is a check valve installed. This check valve will allow the hot water out of the tank but will prevent the back flow of cold water during the winterization bypass. If the valve on top is closed it will not allow hot water out. If the middle valve is opened it will allow the cold water to mix with hot water and defeat the purpose having a water heater. Close the middle open the top and bottom. If there is not one on top then the check valve is probably clogged or has failed and need to be cleaned or replaced.

Electronic ignition hot water heater (6gal) lights but wont get water hot. The red light inside my RV goes off and back on after about 3 minutes. When I checked the unit outside, the pilot is lt, but not...


check to see if setiment has settled on the pilot....blow it out with air if it has. This issue comes up often with water heaters and rv refers. If that is not the problem and the pilot remains lit, but never increases when the thermostat is turned up, you probably need a new gas valve/thermostat.

How do I add antifreeze to winterize this trailer?


basically you get as much of the water out as possible and add antifreeze to the traps and low points. Getting water out involves pulling the cathode/drain on your hot water tank and changing around the bypass valves so you don't have to fill it with antifreeze. There should be low point drains on the trailer (mine has two) Use only the PINK antifreeze which is safe for potable systems. I would reccomend a search on youtube as there are several good videos. Also you may want to pay an RV dealer to do this and watch first time. Once you know what to do it is pretty simple.
