Some additional details would be helpful. City water fitting? Filling Tank? What are you trying to do?

Inside the city water connection there is a check valve.
If the check valve has come apart inside the connection it can restrict water flow into the connection.

You may need to replace the whole connection to fix. A temporary solution to get water into the trailer is to fill your tank from the portable water filler.

One possibility - There may be a water pressure regulator in the inlet pipe. If it is there it will look similar to this:

Some of these have a screen inside that is intended to stop sand and sediment that comes in through the hose. Sometimes the screens accumulate so much stuff that the water can't pass through. If this pressure reulator is the problem you may be able to clean out the debris, but I suggest replacing it.

Another possibility - Some people install a washer with a screen at the inlet, where the hose connects. Look inside where you connect the hose to see if that might be clogged up.

This is a link to a copy of the 1982 owners manual, in case you do not have one.
