It is both....We mainly use the campgrounds water...very rarely the holding tank.

If you have gas and electric on the water heater, use them both at the same time if you can. I wonder if the WH is heating the water enough too.
Also, make sure there is no cold water mixing going on - water getting transferred around the water heater by the winterizing valve.
Plan C - on demand water heater upgrade.

If you are using campground water you are at their mercy for pressure. Are you using a regulator to protect your trailer? Maybe that is reducing it too much.
Upgraded shower head is probably your best bet if you want better pressure and you are just using the campground water.

If your rv water pump provides better pressure though you could use that while showering I guess. Just keep your holding tank full.

Cheers

You could have small plastic shavings stuck in your faucets. The easiest filter to remove would be your kitchen faucet so unscrew the end and see if the screen is clean. If so then the rest are clogged also.
This is a tough one because are water systems are so basic.

You could have a bad pressure reducer and if you can hook up at home take that reducer off and see if it makes a difference.
