There is actually a device between the shower hose and the wall of shower. I dont know what is the function of it, but it might be reducing the pressure. I will take it off and take it to an RV plave tomorrow to see if they can change it if it is pressure reducing device....thanks. Hope this is it.

How much flow with shower head off? Is it the head itself causing the issue? I would also suggest getting an adjustable regulator to protect your coach. The one I ordered is below.

I just checked. Took the shower head off and there is not much pressure. I think your previous theory is good. The device between the wall and shower hose is reducing the pressure. Is there any reason aside from saving water to have that ring/device. If I find a fitting tomorrow to be able to connect the hose without the device i think i will see improvement.

I had one shower head that didn't have the usual push button shot off that slid side to side, the back of the shower head rotated to shut the flow off. I would take the head off and see how the flow out of the hose was. If that is nice and strong its probably the head. What is the mechanism on the line your talking about? Do you have a picture?

They put restrictions on usually because the water tank is not that large and would run out sooner and you can fill your grey water tank quickly too.

The device shown before the hose possibly reducing the pressure. When i take that out the pressure improves. But i need a fitting to reconnect the hose.

I am using the city water and can leave the gray open where we are for now so can I remove this device? I can put it back on when using the water tank.

We had the same problem with low shower pressure with our rig. Filled half of the shower holes with expoxy, and we now have enough pressure to peel your hide off!

I bet there is a reducer disk in either the part the hose screws onto or in the shower head. Take that one apparatus apart and remove anything that looks like a reducer (a disk with a hole in the middle or a screen. Make sure the screen is not plugged if you are going to leave it in. That should fix your problem.

The device,is a vacuum breaker. I dont think i can remove and be without it. I wonder if it also reduces the pressure. Anyone familiar with this?

Don't know i this helps, but we replaced our shower head some time back with a unit available on-line or at Camping World. Will try to add pix. It has helped tremendously especially in lower pressure situations. Depending whether it's on sale or not...$29-39.
