Low water pressure - 2010 Damon Challenger

Picked up this coach I February and I have noticed that when hooked up to city water, the inside pressure everywhere is lower that I have experienced in previous units. Talked to another Damon owner (2012 40 ft pusher), and he is also mystified about the pressure. I have removed my own outer filter system, and as far as I can tell, there is not a built in filter on board. I metered the pressure coming into the coach at the tap and it is fine. Someone mentioned that it may be the way Damon does it's connections, but I would think that Damon would know what they are doing after all this time. I get a feeling that this inside issue also caused the water pump the pulse rapidly, but it doesn't happen all the time (off city water of course).

Any one else who has come across this issue; maybe add your 9 cents worth.

On some newer units there is a filter under the sink and in some under the bath vanity. Might take a look.

Hi needlenoses,
The solution to this problem may be very specific to how the coach is built. Consider posting the problem in the iRV2 Damon Owners forum at
Damon - iRV2 Forums

In that forum you should find members who know your coach very well.

My pressure problem was the whole coach filter. I believe a smaller micron filter replaced the original bigger micron filter.
