A thorough examination of all components, including those hanging beneath the chassis should provide you with all the information you need to properly diagnose the system and hopefully get him up and running again!
Should this result in the system failing to rise to the occasion, there are remedies available. Many of them available on-line as my inbox indicates daily!
Good luck…and don’t report back with any details…
Thank you for a good laugh.

Thank you. There's a Lowes not too far from where she is stored. That and getting her ready for the Playa in two days? Hmmmm

Yornster.....
2 days? You better cross everything you have. Since my husband had to replace all the pvc, had to wait for cement to dry and all that stuff. Tearing it apart, just joyful. 2 days? Well you could always dry camp in the trailer if nothing else.

Hmmm... Dry camp? I have a couple of showers every day! I may have to get someone to help before I get back to the US.

I'm sure it will cost more than winterizing the trailer... My bad.

That'll teach me.

Yomster, lets hope you'd run out of water on the playa last year!

I actually emptied all the tanks and tried to get as much of the water out as I could. Here's to hoping that it isn't too bad.

Yomster,
We emptied all our water too, but it was last used in November out in the freezing middle of Nevada to do some bird hunting. So when the trailer got home I mentioned to my husband about winterizing. We had a real cold winter and all the warming and freezing can play havoc on everything. If you can, have someone try to fill the water tank and then hook up to the city water. If there is going to be a problem, believe me!!!!!! It will show up quickly.
