Fresh water volume

We have an 07 Eagle 341RLQS- The water pressure varies from faucet to faucet regardless if we are on the pump or an outside outlet- I wonder if there is something I can do to increase the flow? All replies appreciated and THANX in advance- DD

I don't get as good a flow from my kitchen faucet. I always just assumed that it is because that faucet is cheap OEM stuff. I tried a couple different things to make it better, but nothing has worked. Eventually I'll replace the faucet. All my other fixtures seem to work just fine.

Wondering what others have to say about the issue.

Remove the aerators from each faucet and clean them out.. I will bet they are plugged.

I tried that when I first bought the trailer, and it didn't make a difference. I though surely since there were at least a dozen screens in there, it would help, but it didn't. Will have to look again, that was over 2 years ago...

It's a regular item to clean them out regularly if you don't have a outside filter. Just a few grains of sand can make a difference.

This is a really good point. I use a filter (the blue Camco ones) always. My water pump was acting up on me, and I found that the particulate filter (screen in a cup) in front of the pump had some "stuff" in it. Not much IMO, just a tiny bit. It didn't look like it was enough to block flow by any appreciable amount. I cleaned it out anyway, and my water pump has worked flawlessly since then.

Looks like it's time for me to re-visit the sink faucet aerator...

I'm hoping this will help OP with his issue?
