I have a 2004 Journey ... I don't completely understand the problem that you are describing.
  1. You fill your fresh water tank and disconnect the city water supply
  2. You turn ON your onboard water pump
  3. Water flows from all the faucets except the shower
  4. When you turn OFF the onboard water pump you can hear air coming from the shower head
  5. Occasionally a drop of water comes from the shower head
When you are hooked up to "city water" does your shower work correctly?

Was the coach winterized? Is this happening right after you de-winterized?

Yeah
I too was a bit perplexed on his issue and or, the way he described it. Now, as I recall, there's basically (4) water outlets INSIDE a coach and, one (possibly) on the outside.

1. Shower
2. Kitchen sink
3. Bathroom sink
4. Toilet


1. Outside shower/wash station.

So, with the pump on, in normal operations, all outlets should flow. But, according to the way I understand the OPs post, if he shut's down the pump, is THEN that he can hear air coming from the shower, huh? So, at this time, you are saying that you DO NOT have any flow from your shower head, with the pump on? Filling the fresh water tank "should" have nothing to do with anything other than, if it was too low for the pump to pick any water up.

If the shower is not flowing any water with the pump, yep, something's amiss with the plumbing or valve that controls that shower. Hmmmm.

Does the shower itself have a shut-off? Like you would use to save water while showering...

Perhaps the kitchen, bathroom and toilet faucets are turned to cold water and the shower is turned to hot water. If that is the case then the air from the shower is air from the hot water tank while the hot water tank is being filled.

Have you tried removing the shower head itself? Unscrew the head and try it, it could be plugged up if there's a screen.

Is this a new occurrence or is the rig new to you?

I panicked on mine as I couldn't get any water from the shower when de-winterizing. Turns out, that shower will completely stop if anything else is drawing water, such as toilet, sink, doesn't matter. Not great news for the person in the shower.

On mine, it doesn't matter if it is pump or city water or even both.

Well, I personnally am still just a tiny bit confused. As another poster stated, you should get water from ANY fawcett, cold or hot, (as long as the water heater has been operating long enough to produce hot water) whether using City Water or, 12V pump.

But, you're stating that water flows from all fawcett's with the exception of the shower. But, you're also stating that you have water flowing from a manifold, IF the shower is activated? Huh? IF you have a manifold that, disperses water in multiple directions and pipes, and that manifold is completely away from that shower valve, and that manifold is leaking, it should leak whether or not you're using ANY FAWCETT, not just trying to activate the shower.

A leak is a leak, especially in a manifold where there is not control valves for said manifold. Now, most 12V water pumps have a limited amount of GPM so, trying to flow every single fawcett and, the toilet and, the shower, is pretty much taxing most RV water pumps. Most of the time, running two fawcett's at one time is about max, three and, you see a fairly diminished flow on all of them, four and, it more than likely will revert to a trickle from all four. Just guessing here.

sewerdog, just my chance are the drain valves in the back of the wet bay open?
Where is the plumping manifold leaking can you get a mirror and look up behind the front panel?

Atom Ant, the compartment where you connect the city water hose and sewer hose is sometimes referred to as the wet bay.
