No water pressure in shower??

Memorial Day Weekend was the 4th trip in the Roo 21SS - 2 trips last fall & now 2 trips this spring. Same campground, same site all 4 trips. No issues with the shower on the previous 3 trips, but when I tried to take a shower on Saturday, there was NO water pressure. The water just sort of trickled out. I had a really hard time getting my hair wet enough to shampoo - and then rinse out the shampoo. I thought it might be because the campground was full and a lot of other campers were probably taking showers around the same time. (The campground gets water from their own well rather than city water.) And then I thought that maybe I didn't turn the water hookup on as much as I did previously. So I turned up the water - no difference. And when the campground started to empty out - still no difference. I didn't notice any reduction in water pressure in either sink, so the problem seems to be just in the shower. Could it be an issue with the shower head? I seem to remember several people mentioning changing out the shower head in some other threads. Any suggestions?

Are you using a pressure regulator? Maybe something's wrong with it.

I had a similar problem about 2 years ago, turns out my anode on hot water heater crumbled and plugged the shower head also plugged up the toilet inlet. Had to take every thing apart and clean out the white flakey junk. I have now elected to not use anodes any longer. I just drain the system in winter and it gets used enough during summer that it gets flushed regular.

I don't use a regulator & I replaced the anode at the start of the season. Last trip was less than a month earlier & the water pressure was fine. Nothing was different - the camper hadn't even been moved. (I disconnected everything when we left so the camper could be moved, but they didn't need the site so it sat in the same place.)

I like the sound of the Oxygenics Body Spa RV model. All the reviews are glowing. Think I'll probably give that a try.

Not sure of this is the case but there is a button on the shower head that is supposed to be a shut off to allow you to save water without having to shut off the valves. Could this have been pushed in and you did not notice? Mine used to trickle before I got the oxygenetics.

It does have a shutoff button on the side of the handle. One way is off & the other is on. Pushed it back & forth several times. Since water still trickles out even when the button is in the "off" position, it was hard to tell on from off!

It's just so weird that it worked fine a month ago and nothing was different.

If pressure is good at the sinks, there is a good chance something is clogging the shower head. Can you remove the shower head and test water coming out of shower hose?

Pull the shower nozzle off the hose, throw the restrictor in the trash and clean the debris out of the nozzle. Remove the hose completely and look for another restrictor where the hose connects to the faucet. Reinstall everything without the restrictors.
