Check the valve system first. Does the faucet give good flow? Do other faucets have good flow.



Is the shower hot amount to low.


A lot of showers have temperature balancers to keep scalding accidents down. You have to find or download instructions for your handle system. Mine you take off the cover and there is an adjustment screw to turn temp up or down.



Also, get under the cabinets or whatever near there. Could be a pinched pipe or creased going around a corner.


Last, could be a bit of construction junk, lime scale, etc. blocking the spray head, line or valves.

Check to see if there is a restrictor or screen in the shower head or at the attach point to the shower head. Both can become blocked with grit/sand/junk left in the lines during construction.

If you use a filter they restrict flow. Also clean all the faucet heads in vinegar and see if it improves.

After one shower we replaced the head in our Pinnacle with an Oxygenics and it's significantly better than what it came with. Not perfect but much better.

Sometimes with park pressure not so great I supplement additional pressure with running the freshwater pump. It does work on mine.

When I replaced our OEM shower head in our Eagle with an Oxygenics, I also removed the flow restrictor disc (round plastic piece with a small hole in it) at the point where the hose attaches to the water valve. HUGE difference. If your boondocking/dry camping or looking to save water, then probably not a good idea but since we are seasonal with full hookups, out it went!

Righteo!! Oxygenics makes an RV version and you can get it on Amazon. While hooking it up, take out the flow restrictor at the bottom of the valve housing.


I have an adjustable water pressure regulator and water softener as well as an in-line filter. I improved pressure in the RV greatly by moving the regulator immediately downstream of the filter and softener. The filter and the softener will drop the pressure some, but they can tolerate full pressure city water. So the regulator is now at the output of the softener and I set it to about 50#. Nicer shower and more vigorous toilet flush.

That's what I was thinking. Dirty water filter. Won't be as noticeable in a faucet with an airator, but definitely with a shower.
