water pressure

I have a 29 ft 2003 fifth wheel and I can not get any water pressure, other than a trickle, and curious if anyone knows of any valves that might need to e turned .
Did not get manuals with it.
Could it be that the regulator from the hose to the RV is causeing the problem--it is new and the dealer gave it to me so figured it was good.
This is the only problem I am haveing and really like living in it.
Does any one know where I can get manuals for my 5th wheel?
Thank You

Is your hw tank full yet ?
If not then it fills first and has to have the air blead out.

Is your winterization valve still turn on if you have one?

Could be the check valve (non-return) in the city water connection gone bad. There really isn't anything else to block all flow of water if you have pressure from ashore.

Hook up hose directly to the fawcet without the regulator open all the unit fawcets and apply pressure slowly. The air in the water lines should expel as the water heater and cold water lines are pressureized. Check fawcet screen adapters for being cloged. Have had them clog up and prevent good water flow.

I have had a bad water pressure regulator before. I had to throw it away. They are not expensive.

As others have stated, hook up without the pressure regulator and see what happens....then you can verify or rule out if the regulator is the problem.

I assume you are correctly hooked to the city water connection and not to the fresh water tank connection?

Do you have an inline water filter/canister anywhere? Mine was hidden behind a cabinet door underneath my entertainment center.

Make sure your water source has full pressure. Our campgrounds water regulator wen -tout Spent a lot of time trying to figure it out before we were told.
