No water flow in the shower!

Recently dewinterized. Filled the fresh water tank with several gallons. Flushed out the antifreeze. Then connected to city water and ran water through all taps. Then opened the flow to the hot water tank. Ram water through all the hot water taps and everything ran well except for the shower. I couldn’t get either hot or cold water to run out of the shower taps. Every other tap is running fine. Seems to be blocked somehow, whether I use city water or the fresh water tank.
Has anyone seen this before? I can’t wrap my head around this One. Any help would be appreciated.

You do know the shower head itself has a shutoff valve on it too? We’ve all had that oh crap moment!

Yes, I did remember to check that in both positions. I am wondering if it somehow got air locked? The sink next to it works fine.

Then I would take the valves out of the taps to see if there’s an obstruction in them. They should be easy to remove. I had an issue in our camper with my storage compartment taps not turning off due to plastic cuttings from the lines stuck in the valve.

Disconnect the shower head and check for water flow. That would narrow your search a bit.

Thanks, guys! It was debris in the shower head. Looked like little plastic bits, the size of sand. Thanks for your help!

Make sure to remove and clean the screens in all your faucets also. I do this everything every spring during dewinterization.
