city water

When I hook up to city water, I have no water pressure at the faucets. My pump works fine when I use it to pump water from the fresh water holding tank so I know the line is clear from the holding tank. I checked the screen filter at the city water inlet and it is clear. I also checked the screen filter at the pump. I then screwed on an air pressure nipple and blew air through at 80 PSI with a faucet opened and water came out. I then hooked up a water hose and still no water came through. Does anyone have a solution? Would there be a check valve that is causing the problem? Thanks.

Only two things I can think of, a pressure regulator on the spigot that is clogged, or a clog somewhere IN the hose. Do you have an inline filter? Try a new hose, and try a new spigot.

OMG-I just looked at your Airstream model and year. If the Airstream is new to you, there are TWO water inlets one on top of the other. The top one is actually the sprayer that cleans the black tank, the bottom one is for city water, but both may be labeled fresh water only. The bottom one has a better cap on it.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
