Water pressure issue

Water pressure issue.

Flushing system of winter antifreeze and preparing for summer. Plugged into city water and have water flowing at only my kitchen sink and my commode. Have tried opening all faucets but can't get water at shower or bathroom sink. Water at outside shower but weak pressure. New to the Dolphin. Could be I am not completing a step?....

Did you winterize it or someone else?

Each RV can be quite different. Did you switch the hot water heater out of bypass? If your water bay doesn't have a valve for this you'll most likely find it on the back of the hot water heater - some of those are 1 valve bypasses, some are 3 valve bypasses. Low point drains: don't know if yours has them specifically, but many do.. did you close them? Water pump.. many have a diverter valve to draw in RV antifreeze from a seperate hose..

Each manufacturer can be so different...

Two or three things, Where the hose screws in there is a screen, (Hard to see, use a light) check that and clean it, soak in vinegar overnight. Then do the same at each faucet, unscrew the little piece on the end, cover the drain hole first. Then the shower, you might need to remove the hand held part and soak the end in vinegar. This helped me big time. I had never even seen the screen at the hose hook up..
Let us know how it works out.

I winterized the RV. The water heater bypass is in the correct position. Water pump is working with the same results. Water only at kitchen sink and commode. This unit does have a diverter valve. Could it be faulty? If so how do I fix?........Tov
