    hey everyone, I’m Fred, a diver and an avid camper, new to popup tents, been a tenter for many years, but I want to give my so a better camping experience especially since the cooler weather is coming, I just bought a new to me 1999 viking in great shape, the only thing I need to figure out is the water hookup, I plugged it and no water comes out,

    Welcome to the Portal from N/W Fl Panhandle.
    What do you mean plugged it in ? do you have water in the tank, is the pump elec. or a manual pump on the faucet ? were you hooked up to city water ?

    There is a check valve at the city water connection. On one of our first of the year trips I had the same issue. Took that check valve out and all was good.

    Also, welcome to the forum from Midway USA. [:)C]
