We have a 34' 2006 Sedona that we had at a RV park for 3 months. Our water pressure was great and it was well water. We just moved it to our property with a new well and our water pressure goes from good to none. I called Gulfstream and they told me they did not know. The problem is our manuel that we got with it the water diagram does not match ours. If someone might know what the problem might be. Our well has excellent pressure and none of the filters are clogged.

When we had a well dug a couple of years ago at our lake property, we noticed a significant drop of water pressure in our rv at about the 3rd trip. Check at the freshwater hookup on your rv. It should have a small conical washer/screen combo similar to that on water connections to a washing machine. Ours on the rv wash clogged and was easily cleaned. You will find also that new wells especially will spit up sediment or whatever for sometime. Also check any wire screens on your faucetts for sediment buildup.

Thank You!!! We will check that out the next time we go up there. We did look at the screen from the outside and it did not look dirty but we need to take it our & clean it. Thank You again.

If you have an in-line whole unit water filter, check that too. Ours clogged up in just a very short time & we eventually just removed it altogether to keep good water pressure.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Good point; I forgot about that. We also removed our inhouse filter and just use a basic inexpensive sediment filter similar to this http://www.campingworld.com/browse/s...fm?skunum=9399 and use bottled water for drinking. I still think he's getting gunk from the well as he stated it was newly dug.

I've had several problems with the cheap inline pressure regulators . Normal pressures they worked fine. At campsites with high pressure the regulator would give me no pressure. Not even a drop of water would flow through them. I went through 3 of these before I bought a real regulator with guages. No problems since.

Hi 57Chevy! Welcome to irv2.com!

To the OP- I have had a whole house sediment filter clog completely with sand and rust in a month. That was in S. FL. I suggest using one to protect the appliances and fixtures in your RV. Filter cartridges are very cheap compared to your RV appliances and fixtures.

We have experienced problems with insufficent pressure from time to time. The filter has shown itself to be the problem on a few occasions. Sometimes the problem was the low peressure in the park. We solved it by using our shore water filter and system to fill our onboard tank. We then use the onboard pump and at least know how much pressure we will have.
