Does the Lister Domestic need priming?
Or does it have leather cups that have dried out?

Have you tried to put some water into the pump before you try it (bleed it) a lot of pumps you have to do this with to help the suction.

Glad to hear your all sorted, it's sometimes the simple things we over look that causes all our problems. Looks to be a good set up on the trailer, if you could post some pics please you'll make us all very happy.
