Kitchen Water issue

Our water in the kitchen only works if slide is out, will not when slide is in. The pump runs the bathroom and shower when slide is in, but pump doesn't run when slide is in for kitchen. Does anyone know if this is a safety issue, or do we have a line kink? Since pump doesn't run we think it is a safety issue, don't want to have to drive it 6 hours to have it fixed if we can help it.

If the kitchen is on the slide then it may be getting kinked. That happened in our previous RV. Eventually it broke and we had some flooding.

I agree: you're getting something kinked: when the slide is retracted!
If I were you: I'd try to trace the water line back from the sink, and see if I could figure out what needs to be done with it.
Good luck!

I’m having the same issue in my 28Z. I’ve located the point where the line is kinked and plan to cal my dealer tomorrow to see what they recommend. I’ll let you know what they say... In the short term, I’ve ‘un-kinked’ it by pulling the excess line behind the cabinet but I’m sure it will happen again when we push the slide in and out.
