Some Water, No Wter

I have a 2017 ACE 27.2 and didn't totally winterize, but did drain and put antifreeze in the p traps. Just started camping this season (here now) where it freezes just in high 20's overnight. use city water during 32 degrees plus during the day/evening, disconnect the hose overnight.

Problem. I have running water in the kitchen sink and in the toilet, do NOT have water in the shower or bathroom sink. Have not seen any leaks underneath the coach. Daytime temp yesterday was low 50's and still no water

I would assume any frozen lines would have thawed over these last 2 days of 40+ and now 50 during the day.

Any ideas from similar events any of you might have had?
Thank you

it's possible that you left the outside shower knob in the ON position, though you have the shower head's push button OFF... this combination sometimes causes problems with the bathroom fixtures.

Well checked your floor plan on line and it looks like the shower and sink are on rear outside corner of the passenger side of coach.......no slides there, so likely no kinking. Odd that the co located toilet works but not the other co-located fixtures (other than the non working items; also donít have hot water either I assume?). Check under the sink to see if the shower is Tíd off the sink pex lines......and if you have access to the up stream pex lines from there you could try a hair dryer.....assuming still frozen lines. Insulation is a wonderful thing........keeps things from freezing (cold out), but once they do freeze, it also keeps heat from getting in to thaw them out also. Just a guess. Pex is very freeze damage resistant, but if you thaw the pipes and water flows....check for leaks too.

Take the flex hose off in the shower then turn the shower on.
If you get water then you'll need to do the same thing under the lavatory.

There are screens in these connection's that clog with crud left over from manufactuing and and from the hot water heater. Easy fix shouldn't need any tools except a tooth pick and small screwdriver.
