Water flow

I apologize up front if this question has been answered. I did do a search but perhaps I am not phrasing it properly. The water pressure on my Crusader 295RSt seems ok with full pressure in the bathroom sink but in the shower and at the kitchen sink it seems awfully low. I removed the regulator I had attached to the hose outside but not much different. Am I missing something?
Thanks

Does it have one of those little water saver discs with the tiny hole in the discharge?

In the faucet itself? I will check that out. Thanks

Take the end off the faucet spout and remove the disc and clean the debris out of the remaining pcs. Do the same with the shower head.
Oh, forgot to tell you to throw the discs in the garbage can.

This is a common issue. Remove the screen on the faucet and clean. I clean mine at least twice a year.

Thanks for the tips. It has been this way since we picked it up new so not sure what could be clogged but I like the idea of taking them and tossing them out!

I had a similar issue on my brand new Crusader, turned out the screen on my pressure reg was clogged with muck.

I found small foam pellets from the insulation in mine about a week after getting our trailer.
I also found that my pressure was low after replacing our filter. After a day it was back to normal.

This is also a common complaint when folks drain the hot water heater through the low point drains instead of bypassing and removing the anode.

Bits of anode material and calcium chunks get swept into the tubing and when you do finally pressurize the system, that junk gets pushed everywhere. (Faucets, shower head and flush valve)
