Got my de-winterizing bout done, From all the work this past winter, I found a few leaks. Not from freeze up I am pleased to say! Tomorrow we will work on the essentials for camping. Clean and light the fridge, start the H/W heater. Fire up the furnace. New water filter. If the weather is more kind than this weekend here in the north east we will be camping next Saturday NIGHT

Argh...Sunday evening 7:00, de-winterized, everything was A-okay until we went to fill the tank for a 5 day boondocking trip starting Wednesday morning. The leak was beyond the fresh water tank, but before the water pump, I discovered we had a 'low spot' that must have frozen over the winter. A bulge and a 3/16" split on the bottom...off to Home Depot! Had to take out the bed to get to it but it wasn't too bad...I cut out the old busted copper pipe and soldered a new piece in...no problem, just a big 'jewelry project' and only a 2-hour setback, now I'm pooped! I'm just glad I found it tonight at home with my torch handy rather than Wednesday night out in the middle of nowhere!

Dewinterizing mystery: When pressuring the system today getting ready for a trip, I got the air out of the line to the kitchen sink and the commode, but I can't get the water pump to activate at all for the lav sink and shower. All that comes out is a trickle which does not activate the pump. Any suggestions?
Also, my TT has four shut-offs under the bathroom sink. The owner's manual shows three. The mystery shut-off runs along the floor just below the water heater and seems to have no real effect on anything I do to activate the water pump.

Check the airator on faucet and the shower head for dirt....it can clog them up and no water will come out.

The fourth shut off is for the line to the outside water valve that is located in the compartment that houses the fresh water hookup. That outlet can be used for a hose to rinse dirty feet etc. You usually shut that line off from under the sink once you hit freezing weather since its not protected.

Sounds like you have a blockage in the line. I'm assuming you checked both cold and hot water in the shower and lavatory sink? If neither causes the pump to activate it would seem like there has to be something keeping the water from flowing, thusly keeping the pressure up in the lines. I assume you checked hot and cold water both with your kitchen sink.
