Water Pressure/Pump

Hello! We have a 2017 Cherokee 274DBH. We upgraded to an oxygenics shower head and get great water pressure for showers while we’re connected to water. If we’re not connected to water, we barley get enough pressure to wash our hands.

We are looking to get a new water pump. Wondering what kind we should get... or is there something that im doing wrong that is making the pressure minimal? We checked for and kinks in the lines and that’s not it.

Check the winterizing valve/diverter at your pump to make sure it is in the correct position and not sucking air from the antifreeze inlet on the outside of your RV.

Thanks. I’ll have my husband check into that. He’s pretty handy but he apparently did not check what you mentioned yet. We keep the camper at his shop. We will check during the week and report back. Thank you!

One other thing to check before you get a new pump - usually there is a inline filter on the water line connecting the FW tank to the pump. Sometimes it gets clogged with manufacturing debris. Pull it out, open it up and clean the screen. Sometimes that's all it needs!
