Didn't the dealer give you a PDI walk through and show you all that?. Winterizing valve, bypass for water heater etc.

Hopefully someone who also has one will answer.

Do you get water when connected to a hose? Is the water tank full? Did it ever work with the pump? If it's a first time use it will take about 3-4 minutes to fill the water heater if it was empty using the pump. A hot water faucet need to be open for it to fill completely. Once the water heater is full all faucets should work.

Sounds like the valve used to winterize is still open allowing the pump to suck air. Should be very close to the pump.

Turn the pump on and locate it by the noise. There may be a clear hose that looks like someone forgot to connect one end. It should have a valve at one end. If the handle is inline with the hose, turn it 90* and try the pump again. There may be a second valve nearby that may have to be turned so the knob IS in line with the hose its connected to. The clear hose, if you have one, and the valves I mention are used to winterize the plumbing with RV antifreeze.

If the water heater is not bypassed, the pump will be filling it with 6 gallons of water first before you see anything from a faucet. That takes a long time. Let us know what you do (or don't) find out. We'll get you fixed up.

try to open a faucet, turn the pump on and see if the pump starts to pickup water. Every RV I have had I had to do this to prime the pump. The pump needs 0psi head pressure to start sucking water out of tank, but once it is primed everything will work as expected.

Found it !

Thanks to all

For the next folks who ask this since this is a 2024.

The pump and the valve are under the stove
(At least in this version with no oven)

Had to remove the kitchen drawer beneath the stove because I couldn't reach it from under sink area

Once I removed the drawer it was right there
No issues pump and valve. 😀

Thanks again yall

Here is one more suggestion that I had a problem with.
The pump input hose that goes from pump up and through a high placed hole under the stovetop had a severe kink from too sharp a bend. It was made worse due to my pump filter being clogged with white pvc shavings from a dirty braided input hose.
I spun the filter off and cleaned it. Then put an elbow in that kinked hose so it would not kink again.
Never a problem with city water, just when using the pump.
