Low water pressure in my 2006 Spirit of America

Hey all, I have a problem with my water pressure.

I just bought a used 2006 Coachmen Spirit of America 28' camper from an individual.
I filled up the fresh water tank and was letting the water run threw the kitchen sink for awhile just to flush out the system, everything was fine and had really good pressure. I had to leave for an hour or so so I shut everything off and left. When I came back to finish up it now doesn't have the pressure it did before I left. I thought it might be the pump so I bought a new one and it's doing the same thing. I've pulled the lines from the pump and put some air to them to see if it might have something in it, also drained the tank and refilled it, still does the same. I'm at a loss of what to do now. City connection works perfectly when I hook up to it. Any suggestions would be great fully appreciated.

Welcome to iRV2.

Did the new pump come with a new strainer or did you transfer the strainer from the original pump?

It did not, and the old pump didn't have one either that I know of. It also doesn't have a water filter on it.

Most times city water pressure will be higher than that provided by the pump.
But if you had good flow/ pressure, from the pump at first then noticed a drop , that's a head scratcher.
I'm assuming the reduced flow is common on all faucets , not just the kitchen.
Have you checked the strainers on the faucets them selves ?

X2, check the strainers on each faucet, clean them out and water pressure should improve.. Also, there should be a strainer on the input side of the pump. It's a small clear "bowel" with a screen that stops foreign objects from being ingested into the pump and ruining the diaphragm. GET ONE!
