Water pump issues

Our pump on our 2016 19 was not shutting off normally. Tonight it won't turn on. What is a good procedure to trouble shoot the problem? Everything else is working in the trailer. We were on some really rough freeway in Pennsylvania.

My first fix and I've never had to go further, is to remove the aerator on the faucet and remove debris from the mesh filter. Take care to note what goes where as you take it apart.
Debris causes the pump to sense back-pressure and shut down.

Thanks for the idea. Overnight the pump worked a bit, so now it's become intermittent. While working there is good strong flow at both sinks and toilet.
