Water Pressure

Okay I have never had an issue like this.
Hooked up to park water, pressure is about 60 psi turn on any faucet in the RV I get a strong flow for about 10 seconds and then goes down to slow flow (pressure at park water is now at 45 and will stay there). If I use my tank water and pump no problem at all. There is no evidence of leaking anywhere. I have a 99 Winnebago Adventurer, DP.

If you leave your pump on while attached to city water do you get good pressure?

5 possible issues

1) Screen washer at city water connection is clogged/dirty
2) Check valve inside city water connection is failing------cheap plastic plunger/spring/o-ring assembly. O-ring gets dislodged and can block/restrict flow
3) Water pressure regulator is clogged/not modulating restricting flow
4) Inside of water supply hose is collapsing
5) Any filtering on water supply is plugged/dirty

Where exactly did you measure the water pressure? If you are measuring it at the park spigot outlet, then the problem sounds like it is theirs. From your description, there is a clog, or some type of restriction somewhere before the gauge. When the water is off, the pressure will go up. But as soon as you start to use water, the restriction will slow the flow, thus drop the pressure. A lot like a bad or corroded electrical connection does.

A collapsed hose just about had ne running thru the campground yelling & pulling my hair out of frustration.

After couple hours of trying this/that and in the middle of tearing water pressure regulator down for inspection neighbor asked "Could it be your hose?"
Tired another hose and voila .......

Outside of problem hose looked just fine.......use it open ended and flow was just fine. Put a restriction on end of hose (nozzle etc) and flow would drop right off.

Glad it was just a hose.

Now go enjoy
