Water pressure on new Sabre 32rcts

I have a brand new Sabre 32rcts and have a problem with low water pressure. This is worse on city water than pump. I have tried two different regulators. The pressure is so bad the water trickles out of shower. Any ideas

Is the pressure any different at the sinks? Ensure the hoses and fixtures are - CLEAN - in other words, remove both, check water pressure without the fixture/hose in place, blow out hose, install, check pressure; take apart the fixture, back rinse and clean/blow out, reassemble and install, check pressure. There may be some loose material in the hose/fixture which restricts the outflow and thereby the trickle of H2O you see. Good luck -

Is the water pressure at the shower acceptable when you're running the fresh water pump?

You could always try an adjustable water pressure regulator.

The pressure with the water pump is just as bad. I tried hooking to city water, taking out the water filter and taking out regulator. This seemed to help a lot, but I know I cannot use it like this.

low waterr pressure

On our first outing with our new Rockwood, this April, we had very little pressure on the kitchen sink side, but great water pressure on the bath side. After talking with a RV repairman, the problem was solved. He told me to take the aerators off the faucets, and run the water. I did and the junk from construction of the trailer plumbing, came pouring out. I put the units back on and that ended the low water pressure mess. Had to do it to the shower head also.

Interesting, should be interesting to see what the dealer finds. Have you spoke with your dealer yet?

I had the same problem with shower. Good pressure everywhere else. Replaced shower head solved my problem. Momma is now happy.
