City water/Great Faucet Flow for 30 seconds

We are out for our 1st trip in our 2015 Trilogy 38fl. Having problems with water pressure. On city water, we have great pressure for 30 seconds or so, then a trickle. Surely this is not a 1st. Would greatly appreciate helpful advice.


God Bless

I would look for a kink or pinch in the water line or an obstruction in the water line, maybe at the water filter. If your unit has an accumulator tank to stabilize water pressure from a water pump, it might be a restriction is reducing water flow and it's the accumulator that is overcoming the problem for the 30 seconds.

Do you have the F1 system with the KW1 filter? If so, try removing the filter and try again. I threw mine out after replacing it, but don't think there is a manual bypass.

TGR-Thanks for the note. Without removing panels, I have checked for restrictions. Seems that's exactly what's going on. BTW, water pressure at the hot water heater is great! When the sun comes up in the morning, I'll dive deeper. Thanks again.


God Bless

LGray-Yes Sir, I have the F1/KW1. I will start there in the morning. Thanks much!

I had an issue like that recently and found a chunk of black rubber like stuff, in the faucet aerator. i removed it and the flow was back to normal. I use both the supplied inboard filter and a hydrant filter so can't imagine where the chunk came from.

Are you using one of those no-good cheap water pressure regulators they sell at RV dealers? If so, take it off. It will not reduce your pressure, but it will severely restrict your flow.

Filter I bet. The pressure builds back up between the filter and the faucet. Open the faucet and when the pressure equals out you are getting what the filter will allow. Thats what happened to me.
