Low water pressure

My MH will not take water from outside hose. It started slowly taking more time for water pressure to come to the faucet. Now it will not come on at all. I have had it hooked to well water and suspect mineral buildup on check valves. If anyone can give me more ideas and locations of these valves please do. 1993 33ft Bounder... Thanks

Check valve should be attached to the inside of water inlet.

Are you using one of those inexpensive in line pressure regulators or small diameter hose.

Similar problem short time ago. Replaced inline preset regulator with a adjustable house water supply regulator and purchased a 5/8" I'd water hose if I could find 3/4" I would buy it.

Great flow and as much pressure up to 45 psi as cg or supply allows.

Hope this helps

Do you have a filter somewhere that needs to be changed?

Probably 8 out of 10 times, low or no water pressure is due to a clogged up water filter. Check your water filter (should be somewhere in the hose hookup area). Well water usually contains a lot of minerals (mine does) so I have 2 filters on mine. Changing the filter is easy to do and I would try that first. Then I would move on to the check valve.
