Help with water pressure

2014 Forrest River Rockwood Windjammer 2609-W



Water pressure is very weak and I am eagerly looking for a way to boost it or am I maybe missing something on setup?


Water tank is full of hot water and no issue there, just very very weak oout of the shower head and sinks.


I am hooked up at a park and have a good source from city water hooked into proper outlet on trailer.


Anyone know of a booster or am I just a rook here?

Unscrew the sink aerator and see if flow increases. They often trap tiny grains of sand and “stuff”. They can be cleaned or replaced.

^^^^ x2. Same with the shower head. You might want to consider replacing the showerhead with an Oxygenics rv showerhead that adds air to increase the pressure.

You can fill your tank then use the 12v pump to give you better pressure.

Check inlet

Every time the water pressure on all things is low, the culprit for me has been a partially clogged screen where the hose screws into the unit.

Where it is one fixture, it has always been a clogged aerator.

Good Luck!

start at the pedestal make sure good pressure there.
turn on water for a minute or two and see if pressure / flow rate drops.


Do not attach any filter / pressure value to your hose.
check the flow inside trailer


attach the pressure regulator you normally use

check inside.... If it drops get a better valve


attach the filter you normally use

check inside.... If it drops replace filter it may be clogged

add better filter that has a good flow rate

I had a 90 degree adaptor on my external water hose. It had a check valve in it restricting the water flow. I removed the check valve. water pressure was normal

Water flow

A lot of good answers. If you are using a pressure regulator, check flow w/o it. They do fill w/ fine particles and go bad over time.The simple pressure regulators are available in 35-45 PSI and 40-50 PSI, go w/ the higher. Pressure range w/ be stamped on the side. Same issue w/ water filters and your mesh filter on the water pump, small bowl on the side of pump. Mine had small pieces of construction junk or calcium in it.

Possibly a clogged filter

I had a similar problem recently with my 2008 Sunseeker. The culprit turned out to be the built in WaterPur cartridge filter located near the pump and fresh water tank. I removed the cartridge from the filter and water flow was restored. The down side is that the tanks fill up faster and need to be dumped more frequently.
