Reno area mobile Repair

I need some help getting my water pump working. (1) I disconnected hoses 5 yrs ago to winterize and now can't figure out how to reattach. There are three hoses and two open attach points. D'oh. And none of these rubber hoses are on the schematic, so guessing a PO added. Blowing/ sucking on each results in water. Sounds like they go directly to the fresh tank. (2) when I cap the extra hoses and attach them to match the schematic, turn on the pump, water only spits from the faucets intermittently. Even after trying to bleed off the system. When faucets are closed, pump continued to run. But eventually shut off and wouldn't power back on. Maybe blew a fuse - or worse. Maybe have leaks (though none evident.)

Things work on city water.

Too tired to further my trials and need some experienced help. Don't have time to tow it to a shop so I'm looking for a mobile repair. Recommendations?
