I think my water pump lost it's prime. Drained all the lines and tanks, flipped the switches to Bypass and Winterize. The switch lights came on but the pump just runs with no pink stuff coming out of the bottle. Can't figure out how to add pink stuff to the pump. Any help would be well appreciated.

I don't have an answer to your problem but have the same problem with a 2006 Jayco Designer fifth wheel. Blew out water lines and pumped in approx. one gallon of anti-freeze before the pump lost its prime. I am interested in what others experienced and what was done to correct it.
LEHAVER, Yes, I did have the bathroom sink faucet open. I may have to open a water line, above the pump, and pour in pink stuff, to get some into the pump. I was hoping to not have to do that. Thanks, ....Doug
Do not drain the lines first. Just pump the pink and then open each faucet and drain one at a time. No need to drain and blow if you are going to pump the pink. I did it for years on a Jayco fiver and never had a problem. When you drain and blow you can loose your prime, or you are bucking air instead of fluid. Put it on city water and fill all lines and get all the air out and start over, with full lines and it should pump the pink stuff then.
I did what you advised. I started over. Added water from the city inlet, and started pumping pink stuff. Worked great. Guess my "Winterize" solenoid is ok after all. Can't figure out why in many past years I've always been able to pump after draining the lines. Anyway, many thanks. ....Doug
