Water pressure problem

Hi all, I have a 2005 Jayco Jayfeather and this past weekend I had a problem with my water pressure. The pressure is very low in the sinks and toilet, I have checked the fuses and breakers and all looked good what am I missing? Thanks for the help hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.

Were you on city water or using your fresh water tank/pump? If city water, are you using a pressure regulator?

City water with no regulator just a hose.

If you are on city water you just may have low city water pressure. You can buy a pressure test gauge at Home Depot that just screws on to a hose or the water faucet at the park. If the pressure is low, just fill your fresh water tank and operate off of it with your onboard water pump.
You should also get a pressure regulator. The park where I was this summer had high pressure that I didn't want to ever get to the plumbing in my 5'er. It was mostly in the 80-85 psi range. I have my regulator set at 50 and I'm happy.

Having pressure problems myself (which were faucet related), check your city water inlet screen for debris, and, pull the screen out and check the pressure ball (if your inlet has one) to make sure its not stuck (mine was) hampering water flow.

A friend who bought another brand had really poor flow in the shower. When the hose was taken off it was full of plastic debri from when the trailer was assembled.
