Hello Again.
 
I am just getting the pod ready for a run. Its been a year or so.
 
The waterpump engages, but doesn't pump water.
 
- The FW tank is full
-I drained all existing standing water / antifreeze before I started trying the pump by opening the lowwater drain plugs.
- This might have been a mistake as the lines to the pump now are now likely dry, but I assumed would self prime from the full FW tank?
- I tried to pump from the winterizing tube on the pump.  Again wouldn't pump through the short dry hose.
 
Question before I change out the pump.
 
- DO I need to pour water into the intake pump hose to fill it to allow the pump to function?
 
thx
