Water pressure

We are currently using the water pump during our camping trip. The water pressure is great,but we noticed that it has decreased a little as we get close to empty in the FW tank. Is this normal?

No ,as long as your F/W supply to the 12V pump is 100% on the suction side your water PSI will be the same! Youroo!!

I'm assuming that's the problem as we are tilted to the side a little bit

It looks like your unit may have enclosed Belly? Your F/W tank pickup is Prob.located (UP) the side,so if your tilted at all it can make a Huge diff. Do (NOT) use your (F/W indicator lights) for amount of Water! We have changed our Pickup point to the Bottom Drain,we get 100% water usage from tank! Youroo!!

We are at a little tilt. The passenger side(doors awning etc) is the high side. It wasn't a HUGE difference but I noticed that there seemed to be a tad less pressure in the kitchen, which was not the case earlier this week. Also, the pump hasn't been regenerating so I don't think another leak is the problem. The cold water seems to flow a little faster than the hot also.

We are having difficulty with the pump system on out Shasta Oasis 26RL. There appears to be an issue on the intake side and we get air coming out on occasion and the pump will continue to run occasionally until we open a tap and get it primed again. Initially thought it was the location of the pickup but ours is at the bottom so it shouldn't be that. It's annoying but still workable until we can get it to the dealer.

I would start with all of the fittings you can get to and make sure they are ALL tight, hot, cold, shower, sinks and at the pump and water filter.

Problem uncovered today. Bypass valve was letting air into the system when pump would cut in. Fixed leak and water works great. Have good pressure at all outlets and no air blasts.
