Rockwood Hi-Wall Pop Up Water Flow/Pressure Problem

I have a 2012 Hi-Wall pop up, the last time I took it out we experienced water pressure/flow problems at the sink and shower. The water supply at the campground was not the problem. I checked the screen at the hose connection and it was clean. Is there an on-board filter somewhere to check?

immediately after the water pump you should have a large canister style water filter. They can become clogged and have problems.

I'd say Jeep is right. Ours got clogged so frequently, I ended up taking it out and putting in a small nipple to take up the space. Only problem that would ever give you is clogging up the aerators on the faucet and shower. But that's an easy fix and it's worth it to have water pressure. It could gunk up the hot water heater but I flush mine after every trip anyway.

The first time out I had to remove the filter cartridge from ours as it was dropping too much pressure. We use a low restriction outside filter anyway, so didn't really need it.

So, w4drr, even though I was on "city" water and not the holding tank water pump, the filter cartridge is still in play?

Yes, it filters both the holding tank water and city water.
