Low water pressure in bathroom only...

We just finished a trip to the Grand Canyon and the coach operated flawlessly....except for the bathroom.

We used the toilet and faucet a few times while rolling down the road and it worked as it should. Good pressure and toilet filled when the pedal was pressed lightly. Once we set up at our campground and put all the slides out, connected to city water (40 psi and anti siphon attachments used)... we had just a trickle of water out of the faucet and almost nothing out of the toilet. We have perfect water pressure out of the kitchen faucet.

We tried several things...

Turned off city water supply, turned on water pump and tried running from fresh tank but no change.

Disconnected the supply line to the toilet and let the water flow out. No change.

Slides in... no change.

Does anybody have a similar experience? Any suggestions?

Then most likely debris in water line. Remove your bathroom faucets aerator and clean. If that is the case then you will have to do same for toilet.

If you open low point drains with water in the WH this can easily happen. The WH drains through the cold water side taking with it some of the crud in the bottom of the WH. Much of it runs out the low point drain, but some stays in the water lines. The next time the water lines are charged, the crud is moved along until it is trapped by a filter screen or valve. Always drain the WH before opening the low point drains.

It doesn't hurt to always use one of these, too.

You can save a little money with the two-pack which comes without the short flex hose.

When you unscrew the water inlet from the rear of the toilet (Turn OFF the water first to the coach) there is a washer with a screen there too. Probably the same as your faucet

Every 6 months I drain the Water Heater, check to see what the anode looks like and use a spray wand on the garden hose to flush all that crud from the anode out. Then it does not end up in your faucet screens or in the one for the toilet.

Works perfect now! I unscrewed the back of the toilet and cleaned it out with q-tips... also made a small vacuum attachment and cleaned it out really well.Click image for larger version
