I have a 2005 Fleetwood Expedition. A couple days ago I lost most of my water pressure..... Hooked to the Park water or running my pump ... I have pressure for about 15 seconds then just a very slow stream .... Where do I even start looking?

Do you have an inline water filter? If so, that would be the first thing I would check. For the pump, there is a crude inlet filter (usually a metal screen) that could be clogged.

You might also have to check all the airiators if you do not have filter.

Need to know if pump is running fast or slow when flow slows. If fast, check inlet filter. if slow, check all aerators as rvwizard suggests. Keep in mind if you never change a filter, on anything. Catastrophic rupture can occur which will contaminate the system, or in some cases when a filter has a built in automatic bypass sudden downstream contamination can occur when there is excessive flow demand or extreme upstream or supply pressure. A final thought. If you have had a water-hammer condition, everything that was laying still inside your plumbing is moving again. Good luck!!

I've got an '05 Discovery, I'm pretty sure you have an inline filter. It's located in the wet compartment behind the fascia. Had a problem with mine. Remove it and put in a jumper line to confirm thats the problem. Cancel that just reread your post. The water doesn't pass through when on the pump. Now I'm stumped too. Good luck.

By any chance is there a valve that is closed that should be open? I would double check all of them and make sure they are turned the right way. Even if they are,close and reopen.

You should have a cleanable strainer on the water pump inlet. Make sure it is clean and also all of the proper valves are open. Also check that all of the clamps on the pump inlet are tight and not picking up some air.
