If your tank was empty, then you more than likely simply have air in the line. Sometimes it takes a while to work all the air out. Run the cold side only on the transom shower until it flows freely. Then repeat on the hot side. It'll bang and rattle while it's working the air out. Once its flowing freely, let it run for a few minutes. You'd be surprised how long it takes to work all the air out sometimes. Once that is done, re-bleed the other faucets again to make sure its all out.

Your is different from mine. ... But yes that is the shut off on yours. ... You will have to experiment with it to see which way is open and closed. ... You could also unscrew the house from the handle (be careful not too loose any washers or orings if you do) you could then blow thru the end of the handle and swith the button back and forth to see. The transom faucet is the furthest from the holding tank and pump so give it some time to bleed the air out.

Shrew, thanks for the info. I will bleed it for a while and do so for the others as well.

Thanks again for the info 0Gravity! I will try that out. From what I can tell though it is actually the closest to the pump and the holding tank. According to the owners manual its seems to be laid out that way. We'll find out. Thanks again!

yes.. that is FYI for your AC.
as for hot water I only have a holding tank with a heating element. Mine doesn't heat from the engine.
look for lines going from engine to tank.

Thanks for clearing that up Baby Blue! While on the boat last night I did see that there was a breaker for the hot water heater. So that must mean there is a heating element somewhere and is most likely not heated by the engine. Thanks again!

The fact that their is a breaker does not mean it's not plumbed to provide hot water when the engine is running. Mine has both capabilities. Next time you go for a cruise, check to see if you are getting hot water after running the engine for a while.

Good to know. I will try this next time I'm out. Thanks Phillbo!

Agreed. The hotwater tank is going to be either electric only. Electric and engine (or electric and engine option, but the engine is not connected (like mine).

If there is a breaker, there at least used to be a hot water heater. It will be in the engine compartment. You can't miss it, it'll be either a large metal cube or a cylinder and will have 2 water lines (cold IN, and hot OUT).

There may be hoses from the water heater to the engine as well.

So I found that the pump is working fine. However, the reason no water was coming from the aft shower was due to the fact that all the water had leaked out.

There are two hoses coming out of the fresh water tank. One is a plastic blue tube and the other is a metallic braided looking hose that you typically find on a household faucet. Both of them are leaking at the exact same type of fitting.

Would these have been loosened for winterization purposes? Do they just need to be tightened down or do they need to be replaced. I will post a video and picture later.
