New 8289WS low pressure in toilet

Hey All,
Just got back from out first weekend trip out in the new 5th. It sure seems like pretty low flushing pressure in the toilet while running on the pump. I did not have a chance to connect to city water. Basically when you step on the pedal it is very slow to get going. It gets the job done, but it seems a little weak.

Other than the toilet everything else was perfect, no issues. This is our second rockwood! We traded in a '13 2604WS. Loving this fifth wheel!

Any thoughts?

Would bet on debris in the valve.

I guess it depends on what your expectations are...we have a 2014 8289 and I wouldn't say it has great pressure with the pump...like you say it gets the job done, but hooking up to city water is noticeably more pressure. I never thought of it as abnormal

I just posted this in another thread but it will be helpful. Disconnect water or turn off your pump. My camper is almost 2 yrs old. I had to disconnect the fitting behind toilet and dig the pvc/ plastic shavings out of the valve. Works fine now. I had to do this twice. Good luck!
