Bubbles in the hot water

We just brought the coach out of winter storage. Opened the low point drains and then added fresh water. I burped the water heater but have adoration in the hot water as it exits the faucet.
I don't see any leaks and the water pump isn't cycling.
Any ideas?

Thanks I know you guys will get me fixed. Our first trip this year, we don't want to go home early

Double check that the by-pass valves on the hot water heater are all fully seated and in the correct possision.
Did you flush the H/W tank when you winterized, some times minerals in the tank will soften over the winter and desolve back into the hot water when you start using it again, giving the water a milky look.

Thanks Skip. I don't think it is the valve. After further investigation I have strong hot water without bubbles at the outside shower. My toilet has strong water pressure/volume. The hot and cold has very low water pressure or volume at the bathroom sink, shower head and kitchen faucet.

Have you looked at the faucet screens for blockage ?

When I picked up my new to me coach it had been winterized by the dealer. On the shakedown trip I was sanitizing the fresh water tanks. I found that the water was not coming out of the faucets . After some investigation I found that the dealer had left the valve that has a tube, which would go to the jug of RV antifreeze (the pink stuff), had been left in the open position . Once I closed the valve everything was normal.

I'll check the screens......why didn't I think of that! No valve for antifreeze pick up but, maybe my threaded connection at the pump is sucking air.

Clifftall wins mostly. Screens were pretty limed up and we hadn't run off the grid for a while. We had good volume when hooked up to city water. I did tighten up the connection on the water tank side of the pump even though there were no leaks. I now have good volume at all but the shower. Probably time to replace the low flow shower hear or soak it in a de-scaler. Codgerbill gets an atta boy!!! Thanks guys.

Tom, I have removed or replaced the pressure reducers in all fawcetts including the shower. However, I just had to use a solid 20 or 22 awg wire to clean out all the holes in the shower head. What a difference!!! I didn't realize how well the shower could work!?
