Yes, some camp sites the water pressure is way to low. We fill the water tank and use both the pump and the water hook up and that seems to do a good job. I understand you can change the head to an Oxygenics brand it will seem like there is more water flow. Have not done that since the water pump for us works fine. Also, I am not sure if it is a good thing or bad to use the pump at the same time as I have seen both negative and positive answers on this. It has worked for us for 3 months now with no issues...

You may have a flow restrictor in your shower head as most units do to save water. It looks like a standard washer with a much smaller hole in the center. Remove it and leave it out of the hose/showerhead. Mine was just inside the base of the shower head. Big difference in flow.

remove the shower hose where it connects to the faucets. You will see a plastic part with a small hole on the faucet assembly. Remove this part temporarily. I just put a cup over it and turned on the water and it pops out. Underneath you will see a rubber washer of some sort with a hole in the center and a black piece of the washer covering the hole. Pull the black part off of the washer and reinstall. Then put the plastic piece back and finally your shower hose. Hopefully like us, you will get the shower pressure you seek.

I was getting ready to shower one day and like yours our pressure has not been the greatest. All of the sudden it was hardly spraying out of the shower head. I took a long journey of pulling hoses and cleaning screens before finding this part. My dealer could not tell me what function the removed part served. I have a gauge on the water inlet and it reads 40 psi. As advised in previous comments check the screens in the water line. Remember there are screen outside also.

good luck!

Thanks everyone. Removed the small washer that restricts flow. Much better. It also has one at the shower head
