Taking off the shower head & checking pressure without the head was my next thought. I'll have to wait till the next trip though. I'm home & the Roo is at the campground. I had a similar issue with the bathroom sink right from the start. Water only trickled out - you could barely wash your hands. Unscrewed the fitting on the faucet & found a small plastic fitting. I don't know if it was supposed to be a restrictor or some kind of aereator but it now resides in a kitchen drawer & water pressure in the bathroom sink is now great.

Two of my faucetts did the same thing thing, I removed the aerators and found plastic burrs in the screens. Once cleaned out, they've been problem free.

Yes.

I'm currently experiencing the same problem. We have been parked for 1 1/2 months with no pressure/water issues. Suddenly the water in the shower was reduced to a trickle. I turned the shower off, then restarted and flow was fine for 5 seconds then back to a trickle. Have replaced the shower head but no change. Checked hose and shower head and all is clear and flow through shower hose is fine without head attached. All other taps work without issues. Checked water pressure and flow and there have been no changes. What is causing the shower flow to be reduced to a trickle?

Disconnect the hose from the shower head and the faucet and look for metal restrictors, throw them in the trash and reassemble.

The only thing in the water system that could have changed is the filter may have become clogged so I replaced the filter and nothing changed. We have a 2104 Georgetown XL. There are no restricters in the lines. If you push the "off" button on the shower head for about 5 seconds, when you release same the flow/pressure is good for another 5 seconds, then back to a trickle. This defys any flow/pressure logic and I'm at a total loss. crackers@sympatico.ca (please do not remove my email address)

You don't state if the pressure at the sinks is OK. Take off the shower head from the hose and see if you get pressure.

Suspect you have a defective shower head.

This is what a restriction somewhere looks manifests itself as ..

As long as there aren't any obstructions in the line, then I would invest in an Oxygenetics shower head. That made a world of difference for us.
