r.e. the water pump.

If the previous owner winterized it and left the valve from the fresh tank alone, you may find the valve from the tank and the one in the line that draws antifreeze are closed. In that case you'd get nothing but a running pump. Just a random thought. Good luck and I hope it isn't the whole pump.

Checked the water pump again. No air leaks and valves working fine and in the right direction. Won't suck at all from the winterizing hose or the fresh tank. I'm going to have to pull the pump out and take it apart or replace it I think.

Most pumps have a filter screen on the suction side, it may be that the screen is stopped up.

Thanks - will check that. Don't think it is the case, but you never know.

Bought a new pump (4008) today and replaced the old one. New one working like a charm! Took apart the old one and everything looks fine so not sure why it is not working.
I could buy a new head and have a spare, but I'm happy with the new one, so all is good.

In my 9 different RV's over the years I have found a problem or 6 in the hot water heater or refrig. electrical connections
They both have electrical spade connections and those connections will corrode and get dirty from road spray etc. Take each connection apart one at a time and spray a little WD40 on them. Work the connection on and off. After all are done in 90% of the time any problems have disappeared. FYI.......worked for me.

Good advice! I think that might have been the issue with the water heater.
