We know the pump runs and there's water in the tank. If a winter drain valve is open and the pump is running, water should be running out under the trailer. Did you check for that?
The pump may be marked in and out at the hose connection point. I can see the out line because it's the one connected to the trailer plumbing. If not, I'd remove both hoses from the pump and run the pump. The inlet hose should be making a detectable vacuum. I cover them one at a time with my thumb and the one sucking on my thumb is the inlet. Once I identify in from out, I'd probably just extend the intake hose into a quart of water and see if it pumps.
I can test the intake line from the tank by hooking up a small pond circulating pump or other working small pump to the tank pump supply hose.
There's only three questions.
1. Is the supply hose open and connected to the storage tank?
2. Does the pump run and pump water?
3. Is the way for the water from the pump to the faucet open?
When we answer those three questions, we'll have this issue resolved.
