Water pressure question

Noticed that the water pressure in new trailer is nowhere near what we had in our Jayco. Could it just be that the city water pressure where were at is low and we should remove regulator from the hose? If not, are there other ways to improve pressure? Finding ourselves running around in the shower just to get wet! Thanks for any insights.

If its a new camper it could be debris in the screen(s) at the shower head/faucets. I'd check there first.

It could be debris in the city water inlet screen too.

Flow restrictors in the shower hose also cause problems, near impossible to get wet with them in there. Ours had a restrictor in each end of the hose between the faucet and shower head.
