Low water pressure.

We have a new 2014 Fleetwood Discovery, when we are hooked up to city water we have very low water pressure, pressure from the connection is very good, am I missing a valve somewhere?

I would take the filter out of the water line by removing the filter element from the housing and put the housing back on. See if that makes a difference. If you have anoutside shower make sure the vales to it are shut off, not just the spigot. Make sure your fill valve is fully in the correct position, and you are not trying to fill the tank.
Good luck!

Are you still having pressure issues? I have the same rig and have started to develop water pressure issues.....toilets don't fill all the way and no pressure at sinks.

Also check you city water connection, it may have a small screen on it. Take a peek and see if there is something plugging it. Critters love to climb into hoses and water facet ends to set up house keeping for the winter. Then when you hook up the hose they get a 600 mph trip through the hose to the screen where they come to an abrupt deceleration.

There is also a screen beside the main water filter which is enclosed in a clear cap. Unscrew and make sure it is not plugged. As well all the taps have water restricters so they may be gummed up. I've never found in any MH the tap flow like at home.

My water entry has a pressure regulator built in.
If I use another pressure regulator in the incoming hose, or at the supply faucet, the pressure and flow of water in the coach is dismal.
Could that be the cause of your problem?

Thanks Brian......all filters and screens are clean...I had to replace the bypass valve due go a Crack in the brass fitting, but that shouldn't affect it.

I had a problem with the flow control so I replaced it with an adjustable regulator - Much better

I have low water pressure, just a dribble really on the cold water side of the kitchen sink (Ive tried it with and without the water filter at the sink - no difference) and shower head, hot side is fine both places. The faucet in the bathroom runs fine both sides? Before I start taking everything apart I'm hoping someone has experienced something like this and can give me some ideas Thanks

Try removing the faucet aerator and clean the small screen.
