I replaced the shower head with a "high pressure" one and that has made a HUGE difference.

So much so that I am removing this item from the list.

The shower is acceptable now.

Which one did you get? My coach does EXACTLY the same thing, and has since it was brand new.

I have the same issue with my Berkshire. I did check all the screens and only have good results with the filter removed. I am looking for a outside filter that will be in the 5/8 hose before it goes into the 1/2 water lines. I'm not sure it will correct but I'm running without a filter for now. My thought is with the small lines the filter is to restrictive. I also use a oxegenator or something like that. Garrard gave it to me when trying to figure why I got scalded every time I took a shower. The Garrard works great now.
I would like feedback on the waterline thing. Does that make sense?

Better water pressure and replaced it with the new model. They put a control in to adjust the burner.

FYI In my FR product (Coachmen Encounter) they mounted the water pump on the metal wall of the wet bay, up behind the panel. Also difficult to get to; like yours. Made a he** of a racket when working.

I relocated it to the floor of the wet bay in an effort to make it quieter as requested by the DW. I had a lot of help here regarding how to make it run quiet, and it does now, but the unexpected benefit was that it is now very easy to access for winterizing or to trouble shoot when necessary.

Just a thought.

Oh, and FR used the least expensive pump available I think. I upgraded to a premium version and it was well worth the money. I get more volume and pressure from my fresh water tank and pump system than I do in nearly every shore water line hook up. I had excellent water pressure at really only one campground, Indigo Bluffs in upper MI (near Empire MI). Their water was excellent and the pressure was outstanding (at least as good as I've had using a waterline pressure limiting device).
