Try letting the pump run with faucets open to make it easier to prime - or disconnect the pump outlet to make it easier still to prime.
Presume you have enough water in the tank!
Is it possible that the intake side of your pump has a valve and short hose for sucking in antifreeze to winterize the trailer it and maybe the valve was left in the wrong position?
Where are you now? If in NY, could the inlet be frozen?
Maybe something in the pump is seized up if never used?
Dunno what else to suggest!
PS - the pump in our 2005 was in bad shape when we bought the trailer (used) - I think it was an Aquaflow - made a heck of a noise and very little flow and was very hard to prime. I used to have to suck water into the pump from the antifreeze hose and then switch it to the tank to get it to prime!
After a year or two it gave up completely and I installed a "Shurflo" pump for about $200. A world of difference - lots of flow and almost no noise!
