I soak mine (forget the make/model) in CLR at least once a year & it looks/works like new.

All good ideas. Maybe one day when I am camping sitting under the awning; wondering what I can do besides have another Margareta.

Water pressure

Just went through the same thing. Purchased this from Camping World $13.00 rated at 50-55 PSI and 15-20% more flow. Research suggested that the new rigs can certainly handle this and that it is not just about PSI, but flow.

Used it now for three trips, much better showers and kitchen pressure.

The model with the guage is a little lower in PSI and flow at 40-50 PSI.

40psi is adequate for most trailers. What happens is the flow gets choked down at the spray head. Take the restrictor out of your faucets and voila! improved pressure.
