Water Pressure in DP

I have a 2004 National Tropical is has very low water pressure in all faucets. I don't have a regulator on it from the hose bib. There is plenty of pressure at the hose end. I understand the need to have lower pressure on the inside but it is very weak. Any ideas to increase it with out damaging the pipes?

When I had my 04 Tropi Cal I removed the back flow preventer from the water inlet line. This helped a lot. I did have to put a plug in the line then when using the pump.

Do you have an in line filter? If so remove it and see if it cures the problem. I've had them get plunged with mineral deposits and restrict flow.

If you are not using a regulator then the pressure inside the RV will be the same as the hose bib. (physics) Sounds like you have a volume issue.

I did try that with no help. But thanks for the idea.

Directly behind where you hook your hose to the coach.

That was my thought as well I just wanted to make sure there was no way of regulating the pressure inside the coach. If it is what it is then I will live with it.

A regulator is still needed. A correct sized quality regulator will not reduce flow (GPM) just reduce the pressure to a safe range for the Rv's piping.

Nf, there may be inline sediment screens (like a small washer with a semi-spherical screen mounted in it) where the hose comes into your coach, and at each faucet. Be sure to check these. It is amazing how a small amount of grit can impede water flow.
