I have had the aireator/screens at the output of the faucets get stopped up with crud that came loose from the interior of the water heater and prevented water flow. You might check those aireator/screens.

You did not say, but do you have no water at any of the faucets, or the shower, or the toilet?

From your registered location, I wonder if you have the valves set 'off',...as in 'winter mode'... do you have the manual? You can download from the Mothership...

Has water....now no water!

Just bought a 1996 28' Excella Widebody. Initially I had water flow when dewinterizing the unit then about half way thru the process no water flow either via a city water hookup or via pump and the water tank? I need help!

Do you have water flow at the tub/shower? What about the toilet? If you have water at those two, but not the sinks, then the aerators in the faucets got clogged. Pretty common while de-winterizing.

I have no water flow at any location. I had water flow when rinsing out the faucets and toilet, then all water flow stopped.

You're still not providing a whole lot of information that readers can use to remotely diagnose the problem.

First, if you have municipal water connected, your pump isn't going to work even if you switch it on. The city water pressure prevents the pump's pressure switch from activating the pump. So let's not worry about the pump right now. Turn it off and work on municipal water only for now.

Second, have you checked for leaks? If water is coming in but not going to the faucets, then it has to be going somewhere. Check your low point drains and make sure they're actually closed. Then start opening cabinets and tracing your water lines beginning at the municipal water intake to see if you can find a leak. Keep at least one faucet cracked open to allow water to flow if it can. Note that a leak is more likely than a clog, and if none of the water gets to the faucets, then a complete break in the line is more likely than a small leak.

Once you've determined if there's any leaks, report back to us and tell us what you found, and we'll figure out where to go from there.

Pull the low drains and see if you have water in the water lines. Check for water flow again from both the pump and the city water inlet with the low point drains open. If you have no water flow out of the low point drains, then as odd as it sounds, you might have two problems. One is the inlet filter on the water pump. The other one is the check valve on the city water inlet.

On your trailer, is there an inline water filter? I know some airstreams have one, but I don't know what years do and do not. If you have an inline filter, it's probably clogged. I would check that first if you have one.

Another test would be to hook up a garden hose to one of the faucets. You'll need an adapter to do that. Then you can run water into that faucet and see if you get water out of the other faucets.

Based on that, I would wager your aireator/screens are clogged. I've had it happen several times when de-winterizing.

Does the toilet even have an aerator/screen?

No, but at this point I'm doubting the totality of the info we are getting.

As am I. It's a lot harder to talk someone through the troubleshooting process so that he can find the problem than it is to just offer solutions once the OP has done his own troubleshooting and identified the problem.

The OP has not told us the problem, he only told us a symptom of the problem. Unless we can help him find the problem first, I very much doubt that us tossing solutions at him will help very much.

All aerators have been removed and there is no aerator or screen in the toilet. I have told you all that has happened!

At this point if it were just the pump output, or just the city water not working, it would give us a clue, but since you have no water from either, and the aerators are not plugged, I just don't know.

The water from the pump comes into the system at a different place than the water from the city hookup, so a plugged line is unlikely.

You actually might want to call Airstream and talk with them. I have found them very helpful in the past.
