2016 Dutchman kodiak 291resl

I just bought this camper over the weekend and I pulled it to a campground and cannot get my city water to work. I get a little dribble out. I know where the bypass valves are but that's it. Anyone know if there's another valve that need opened and where it's located???

Sounds like the back flow valve at the city water hook up is sticking. Remove the debris screen and gently press in on the little plastic ball and see if it moves in. Watch out for water spray from it.

I still get water out of my water heater and my outside shower hoses work great but it's just the inside gets nothing.

Its it possible that the hot water heater bypass valve is closed?

Check the screens on the interior faucets. Does the toilet flush OK? If not, sounds like a bypass valve issue.

Remove the faucet screens, sounds like your bypass valves were in the correct position. Also check under and in cabinets for kinked or pinched lines. Have you tried it on the pump with water from the tank? How is the pressure on that? Typically it will be a bit lower than city pressure but it still should be decent.
