I suggest these GE Carbon Replace Filter 2-Pack-FXWTC at The Home Depot
or something similar that says "carbon" on the label somewhere.
Activated carbon works pretty well to remove chlorine smell and to a lesser
degree it can remove some of the plastic hose smell/taste.

Any filter will remove debris large enough to clog your flush valve.

Can you maybe remove the line and somehow aim it at a bucket or drain
and give the line a good flush?? Sounds like you've got construction
debris in your water system.

Good Luck!

Are these just standard whole house filters?

Just a note to add. We removed the aerators from kitchen and bath area fawcets in our couch and both aerators had an accumulation of a very fine sand which was restricting the flow. We believe the sand like substance was from the whole house filter itself. We replaced the supplied whole house filter with a different type and no more issues. Additionally; we replaced that #6 screw in the 310 toilet flush paddle with a #10 and no more having to keep tightning it.

I have the opposite problem with my 2014 335 - the flush is so strong it sprays out over the bowl. Not a pleasant experience.

X2, but only on the first flush or two once hooking up to a water source. After that, it settles down. We've just kind of accepted that it's "normal".

(And, I *do* have a Watts regulator from RV Water Filter Store.)

Glad I'm not alone. We've only been out twice since picking it up, and we did notice an improvement after the initial flushes. It's on the list of new vehicle "corrections" when we bring it back in; I wonder what the dealer will say about it...
