SOURCE: trailer wiring
First check and make sure that the marker lights are working on your pickup. If not, check the fuse. If they are, you will need to make sure the there is power going in to your trailer plug form the brown wire. Then check and make sure you have power through the trailer wire. All of this can be done using a electrical tester you can get from the dollar store.

Hi: under the hood in the power distribution box there is a 40 Amp fuse that has to be installed to power up the trailer package. When standing looking from the front left fender it should be at the front right corner, refer to the power distribution diagram on the cover. As well under the box by the spare tire is a plug in type module mounted on the frame. There should be 2 wire harnesses located there, make sure the correct plug in is connected. Hope this helps... please rate suggestion .... ty

Put a wet vac on the hole that you open to empty the tank and tape it shut so it wont get air in then turn it on and flush the toilet sounds like something got stuck when it got to full if this don't work take stool off take it outside and turn it upside down and use a water hose to flush it out backwards from the outlet hole there may be something stuck in there that your auger cant get out.

If I understand you correctly this is what you have:
- A pump that draws water from a lake 300 feet from lake to your cabin (I assume the pump is at the cabin)
- The pump kicks on to maintain pressure in a tank that distributes water to faucets in the cabin. The pump only turns on to pressurize the tank when water is being used (I am assuming).
- When you turn on tap, pressure in the pressure tank drops to 30 psi, then you hear water sucking from the tank to tap and flow stops at tap. Then the pump finally kicks back on and pressures tank to 23 psi.
- The pump is not used regularly.
If water flow stops when the pressure tank is reading 25 psi, then likely the real pressure is 0 psi and pressure gauge is reading wrong. If this gauge is tied into a switch that starts and stops the pump, then this is probably your problem. You may have partial blockage in your pressure gauge/switch that is causing gauge to move too slowly to keep up with the actual pressure changes when water is being used. Ore the pressure gauge/switch may be broken. Pressure gauges are notorious for reading pressure when there is none. If you can unplug the pump and disconnect the pressure gauge/switch and check for blockage in the ports you should start there. You mentioned that this worked good for the last two summers, if if sits unused for long periods, it could promote bio-growth, rust and/or sediment in the connection to the pressure gauge. If you find blockage, remove it and flush it out. Reinstall the pressure gauge/switch and try it again.
One other possibility is clogged strainer(s) / filter(s) in the water lines. It would not hurt to pull and check/clean any strainers / filters in the system including before the pump. I would even check at the lake for a strainer where the water enters the suction line to the cabin.
I would not assume that the pump is the problem yet.
Hope this helps.
