In that situation, I plan on just using the park's water supply to fill the FW tank and then run off the tank and pump instead of the city water.

Oh, and about that one post above where the dealer told you you could run the pump with an empty FW tank... don't do that. Running pump and city water together is debatable, but the one we all agree on is to not run it without water. Always make sure there's water in the tank when running the pump.

The surest way to lose is to play Marco Polo with a ventriloquist.

Oxygenics shower head, adjustable water pressure regulator(throw away the cheapo plastic regulator) and remove the water restrictor in the faucet. Somewhere around the outflow of the faucet will be a plastic washer looking thingy, this is the restrictor.

Not necessarily on the subject of water pressure, and in a way it is. When hooking up the water hose, from the faucet, connect the adjustable regulator, the in-line filter(what I use), then the hose to the city water inlet. Too many people put the regulator on the end of the hose going to the TT. You want the pressure regulated before it goes thru the filter and the hose. Why put the un-needed strain on the filter and hose?

Just my thoughts, now go take on the day.

If you are using a regulator I would check it. I had the same problem, using a reasonably good brass regulator. Removed it & used a older unit (also brass with a gage, but not as compact as the newer one) & no more low pressure.

My iPad version doesn't appear to have a thank you button. Don't want my sincere thanks for everyone's response.
