Just got the new '98 LC RV Diesel and have found that the rear windscreen washer motor operates but is not pumping at the screen. Anyone have some ideas?

No, there is no sign of water anywhere. That's the mystery.

The plastic tube inside the door leading to the jet split on my 60 and I replaced it with a new piece right from the waterbottle.
Check inside the door panel after you activate the washer and see if there is any water inside the doorframe.

The little jet where the water comes out will be blocked.

Try clearing it with a pin while someone is activating the pump.

I had that problem before, the fix was unplugged it at the pump and got the air compressor into it and blew all the gunk out

On the 60 Series Cruiser there is a non return valve in the plumbing in the rear door. This can block up & no amount of pressure from both ends will shift the blockage. I got rid of mine, but it now takes a little longer to pump from the motor to rear screen.

I was getting one side of my barn doors wet only. it turned out when one of the doors was closing it was kinking the pipe - could be worth a look although yours is a different setup

Thanks guys!
Heaps of ideas on the cure for the problem and I will get to it on the weekend.
My bet it is the non-return valve as the rear wiper/washer circuit has not been operational for some time.
