Water pump pressure

I have a 2001 HR Scepter 38 PDQ that I have not had a lot of experience with. I dry camped one night only to discover the water pump pressure is so bad I cannot take a shower without it turning off and on and it changing temperature from really hot to really cold. When hooked up to city water I don't have this problem. What do I look for? Also anyone that can tell me where the pump is would be nice as I think there is a pressure adjustment on it.

I would run the pump and use the sound to find its location. There should be a small screen filter on one side of the pump and a check valve on the other. I would check those two items first.

When I get it back I will try again to locate it. I appreciate the information on the rest of it. I can't look ATM as it is at the dealer to finish some items they were supposed to do last year.
