Help with the outside shower

Our 2014 Rockwood 8329 is just dribbling when we turn on the outside shower.
1. Does the on board water system pump into the outside shower to can we use city water?
2. Even though we de winterized the TT, only dribbles come out when we have the on board pump turned on to the outside shower.

Any and all answers will be welcome!

the outside showers are never very good from what ive seen. Might take the shower head off and try it to see if something is kinked or clogged. It should run on city or pump like anything else... good luck

In addition to the faucets, there is a shut off in the shower head. Make sure it is open.

X2. We actually had the rotary on/off on the head fail too, and our friend's new camper came with BOTH supply lines to the outside shower kinked nearly closed.

After I de winterize I usually get sediment from water heater clogged in faucets I would unscrew and see if clogged with sediment.

Unscrew the shower handle from the hose and see if water is running. I bet it is the shut off valve at the base of the handle, which by the way, does not completely shut off - it allows a dribble of water.

There is a neat attachment to flush out your hot water tank. Attach it to a garden hose, stick it in the drain plug hole and twist it around. You'll be surprises at the crud that comes out. Check your exterior shower head, it may have a restrictor to reduce the water flow. It's just a washer with a very small hole in it, take it out, throw it away and put another washer in it's place with a bigger hole. This problem can also restrict flow to the inside bath shower head also.
