I don't see a valve but if I take a small Allen key I can feel a gasket or rubber membrane as I poke through the middle?

Turn on the water pump inside. Go back outside and use a small allen wrench to 'push' in the center of the 'city water' inlet in your picture.... does any water come out? How much 'pressure'?

Do you have the 'plumbing' schematic? Look and find the 'City water' connection, then trace it back toward the pump... do you see a 'check' valve? Where?

Since my other suggestion was a bust....... I'll make another guess.

I'm thinking there must have been some critter or nest inside the hose bib when you hooked up the hose and now it's in you pipes. Maybe if you open up the low point drain whatever it is might flush out. If water comes through the drain without pushing trash out, at least you will know the blockage is beyond the drain. If it does not, then you know the blockage is before the drain.

Another thought.... when you were moving did you store something in the compartment where the winterizing valve are, maybe a valve opened or closed?

I had a similar problem on a 1977 AS, I ended up having to take the check valve and pressure regulator off. I found a bunch of stuff that had plugged up the check valve and the screen on the inlet of the pressure regulator. I now have more water pressure than I ever thought possible.

Thank you to all that posted your thoughts and ideas yesterday. I had to walk away from the problem as I had put to much time into trying to find the solution as my wife hinted. You see we are parked beach front at Long key state park in FL Keys and she thought I should enjoy it for a little while. I get obsessed by trying to find the solution.

So 5am I'm up and tinkering again.
anyway I filled the fresh water tank, ran the pump and pressed hard with some pressure on the centre of the check valve with a allen wrench. Water came flooding out. Hoping this would clear any blockage. I also opened up the low point drain (I think) that was located on the side of the water tank between the wheels. That didn't change the situation either mm...? Confused.

I tried unscrewing the 4 screws hold on the city water inlet but it seemed held on from the back side of it. So I then tried to get behind the bathroom sink to access the city water inlet to see if I could take it apart from the inside of the trailer. It seemed that I'd have to dismantle the bathroom cabinets to access it better which seemed like a bigger task than I thought.

cwf, you suggested finding the water pump and check valve. I'll start rummaging through to find the plumbing schematic, I'd better wait though until the family awakes 😏. That's my next action. You take the simple things for granted (like not having water) until you open the faucet and nothing happens

On our AS, there is a plate in the water bay outside... So just removing a couple screws allowed access.. But you are laying on the ground to do that. There is a CV(check valve) built in to the Water inlet... By pressing in it with pump on, as I recommended, you verified that water piping and CV function properly. Flushing more out may clear the line...

Don't run the pump and city water....

I accessed the city water inlet under the bathroom sink. I detached the pipes that were attached on the inside and had my wife hook up the city water and turn it on. No water came through the Valve. I presume now I have narrowed it down to the inlet valve? I guess. I assume now I should maybe remove the city water valve and check it for block or dis function. Any thoughts if I'm heading in the right direction before I remove valve?
Thanks all.

Sorry, can't help with your immediate question. But, here's another solution that will allow you to enjoy your vacation time. Don't worry about the city water connection for the time being. Because you are able to get water using your pump and fresh water tank, just use it instead of the city water hookup. You can always refill your fresh water tank with your hose that's hooked up to the city water. Your hose should have an inline filter on it. Get one if you don't already have one. It will filter out any crud going into your fresh tank and your city water hookup.

Ok problem solved😊. The nipple attached to the rubber gasket had depressed into the valve and was not poking out where the city water connects. Therefore blocking the valve. After accessing the valve from under the sink, taking it apart and pushing the rubber nipple back through to its original position all is good.
Thank you everyone for narrowing it down and helping me.
