Immediate assistance needed

I have a flagstaff 831krss. I am currently at the campground for the weekend and have absolutly no water pressure. Ive checked everything i can think of but no luck. Ive checked the hose for kinks, washers, clogged screens, took the water pressure regulator off all with no luck. Ive checked the water filter and even took the filter out of the canister and its still not any better. It just seems like something is kinked. Thats the type of pressure im getting. At tge campground spigot the pressure is good or at least good enough to give me more then what im getting on the inside of the trailer.
Anything you can think of would be great.

Erik

How about the water heater bypass valves? Are they set correctly?

Yes that was the first problem. Had no hot water but had it at the relief valve. Got that problem solved.
Just filled up the fresh holding tank and using the pump i have decent pressure. So im thinking if its not a trailer problem then the preesure from the campgroynd is just weak.
Unless its in the city water connection which i wont know till i get back home


Thanks.

Is the valve at the pump you use to draw antifreeze into the system at winter turned the wrong way? If so, that will cause low or no pressure.

If it is the campground pressure, you would not be the only one with the problem. Ask around.

The guy across the street said his was ok. He said his wife said the shower was a little weak but he said it was ok. So thats a no decision.

Ok. Just hooked up the city water again cause i know all tge valves are in the right position cause the trailer water pump is working fine.
The city water started out strong and then just kinda fizzles out to weak.
Has anyone ever heard of the city water inlet going bad? Its the only thing i can come up with.

You must be right if everything downstream of the city inlet is working as it should. No, I've never heard of this one before. I almost sounds like a kink in your water hose, but I'm sure you checked that out. Let us know.

Is the CG water faucet one of those with the lifting handles or the standard twisting spigot? I seen the washers in the turn to open type come loose from the stem and cause a low flow situation. It's gonna be hard to get the CG to do anything about it unless you have a cutoff valve at your site.

Have you pulled the screen from your RV's city water inlet to see if there's something blocking the flow? Could be the check valve in there that's giving you the problem.

Would you please report here what you did to fix the problem? I have the same model camper as you and although I have not run into this problem, I would appreciate the information, just in case.

I hope you resolve your problem, it sure can bum out your trip to encounter problems like this. How do you like the camper otherwise?

Well,i think the problem just was the campground water pressure. A guy pulled into the site next to me last night so i asked him to check his pressure and he said his was weak also. I ended up just filling up the fresh water tank and using the trailer water pump which gave me better pressure,if that isnt pathetic!!!!!
anyway,just got home and im going to hook up my water from the house just to double check that my city water inlet isnt clogged or kinked somewhere but after talking to the guy at the next site im pretty sure that it was just low pressure at the campground.
What kind of threw me off though is that when i opened the faucet at the site without a hose attached ,it seemed pretty normal as far as the flow.
