Have you checked for leaks? If so did you find any? Have you checked the low point drains? Were they closed? Aside from removing the aerators, have you done anything else we suggested to troubleshoot the problem? There's no need to panic. Troubleshooting a problem consists of trying everything until you discover the source of the problem, and it takes patience.

Here's another option for troubleshooting. Disconnect the hose from the municipal water inlet. Attach a blowout plug. Open a faucet, doesn't matter which one. Have someone inside watching the faucet. Blow compressed air into the system just like if you were winterizing. Does air come out the faucet?

When you de-winterized, were you using city water or the pump/FW tank when you had the initial water flow?

Have you disconnected the hose from the AS city water inlet? (make sure you aren't connected to the black water flush inlet; common error.) If you have disconnected the water from the AS and the water pump is "on" does the water pump come on when you open a spigot in the trailer? (I'm assuming you have the store/use switch set to use or you have external 110vac power connected to power the AS.)

Here's the latest. Tonight I tried using the water in the holding tank (on the curbside of the unit) and the pump would run for 15 seconds then turn off when pressure was adequate. No water came out of the kitchen sink, the shower, the toilet and the bathroom sink. I then connected to city water (street side of the unit) and I had water in the bathroom, both sink and toilet, the water heater filled (street side also) but I had no water from any curbside outlet (shower and kitchen sink). Is there a valve that separates the curbside piping from the street side piping?

A little terminology. The water tank is just that, the water tank. There are one or two holding tanks - one for the toilet (black tank) and another for the sinks and shower (gray water). The potable water tank (curbside) is not called a "holding tank".

Definitely seems like a blockage or a closed valve. Is there any way you can contact the previous owner? If not, try contacting Airstream support. They usually answer in a day or less.

The latest. I have running water in the streetside bathroom by city water and pumped water. The pump works fine. I have no water flow on the curbside kitchen sink and shower. Is there any type of shutoff that would interrupt the flow after the pump?

All our trailers get "re-designed" by previous owners who think they have a better idea. Some of these mods are skillfully done and wonderful, and others not so much...

I will assume at this point in the discussion that you've eliminated large leaks and open drain valves. You'd have noticed the water by now.

Can you trace the water lines out visually to see if someone has installed a valve, kinked a line, or some such? Water lines are installed above the floor in an Airstream, usually at the very edge of the floor next to the outer wall. It takes a lot of crawling around and looking into remote corners with a flashlight, but it can be done.

It is also possible for crud to precipitate out of very hard water and accumulate inside a water pipe. Used to see that in houses when I lived in hard water country.

Good luck finding the problem.

I've heard it called the freshwater holding tank because that is what it is. Jim

Here is the latest...city water works on streetside but not on curbside, same for water from water holding tank. I have hot water in bathroom sink but no water in kitchen sink or shower. Is there a shut off valve that I haven't located?

That would seem to be what most of us are betting on. As stated above it is not uncommon for a previous owner to have a "better" idea and install additional valves etc. That leaves it in your court to figure out what he was thinking, or not.

What did you do to get the water flowing in the bathroom sink?

To all who mentioned aerators you were very close. The problems were actually totally clogged kitchen faucet/sprayer and shower sprayer. After replacing both I am in business. Thanks for all the ideas and comments.
