Faucet water flow during stool flushing

On the Dutch Stars is it normal for the faucet water flow to be practically non existant during stool flushing? And the wife says the shower almost shuts off completely if I turn on another faucet slightly to brush my teeth while she's showing. This is while connected to city water, haven't tried all this with just the water pump. Will do it that way tonight and see what happens.

I had this issue, plus the fresh water tank would take forever to fill, finally realized it could be the filter on the city water inlet and that is what it was!

Hi wagonmaster2,
Like Luv2go posted, the whole house water filter can be the cause. It can also be caused by the water PSI gauge if you have one attached to the shore water supply. Easy to diagnose. Remove either from the system and see what happens.

As others have said, this filter is suspect. We usually keep the pump on during shower time along with city water for extra pressure. Of course this assumes full hookups

Hi wagonmaster2,
All good answers above, but in the wet bay where you connect your water supply hose to the coach there should be a check valve on the reverse side of that fresh water connection. If this check valve goes bad it can act as a restriction to the flow of water inside your coach. This fresh water connection can easily be removed for inspection and or replacement if found to be stuck.

Looks like I've got several places to check. Did notice that having the water pump on while flushing or showering definitely helped with the water flow so must be several of the water inflow problem as suggested.
