Toilet question

My toilet (2018 FR3 30DS) has low water pressure at bowl spray nozzle. Plenty of pressure in the sinks. I have heard of gunk from WH clogging lines to the toilet only. Has anyone else had this issue? Fix?

I had exactly the same problem a couple months ago, turned out to be the water valve.....replaced and worked perfectly again.

since all most all toliets and WH are the same in your FR3 as my TT or my fifth wheel, I will respond. yes this happens. I experienced 4 years ago in Amana Iowa at the Frogtober Rally. Its a simple fix.
turn off water and water pump
unscrew water supply line, have a small bucket to lay line into
unscrew 2 bots holding toilet down, and remove
place a solo cup with some water in hole to prevent smells
take toilet outside and clean screen between water line and toilet. Scraping with a flat head screwdriver helps and spraying with a water hose to rinse seems to do the trick

now, if you do this around camping friends, you wil never hear the end of it, but you will be back in business

I recently came back from a 10 day dry camping trip. I changed out the anode rode and filter. Look at the crap that came back out of the water heater and was trapped in the water filter I installed. The toilet never backed up. :-)

I pulled the toilet and the screen on the valve was completely clogged. I scraped that crap off and the water is flowing like a river! The RV supply guy talked me into an external filter hooked for my hose. That way I filter the water BEFORE it hits the fresh water tank. I camp off the grid 99.999% of the time. If I do use a full hook-up spot Ill use filter on water source.
With the low water flow in the toilet, I found a new problem. More material (poop/paper) than water in the tank which clogged the drain pipe. I thought I had drained the black tank but the paper dried out and clogged the black tank drain. I used a clear plastic sewer connecter between the sewer line and black/gray drain. It had a connector for a hose which forced water up the drain (pulled black tank value) flushed out the clog. It worked great.

I'm a betting man and I bet you have not solved the issue. Why do you think your sinks and shower have not plugged up yet if it were just filtering your outside fresh water supply? I'm betting you have the same issue coming from the WH anode rod crap backflushing into your system. Since I installed my filter on the WH, I have not had the issue again (crossing fingers here).
