Water Pressure

I am having trouble with the water pressure. I have a 1992 Airstream 34ft Excello. I have replaced the kitchen, bath room and shower fixtures. The toilet trikles a little water out when you flush it. Is there a check value or something on this unit that I don't know about. Does anyone have a answer that might help???

Is this problem occuring when using the city water supply, or the 12 volt system, or both?

Why did you replace the fixtures? Was that before you had the problem or after? Ditto here on Mark's questions, city water or demand pump?

Further question... are you using an aftermarket pressure regulator on the hose at the faucet you're hooking up to?

Water Pressure

This happens with 12 volt and I am hooked up to city water.
I replaced the kitchen fauct because my wife wanted a higher fauct at the sink.

The bath room fixtures were looking old (white looking). Some one told me that a large bug could be in the line and is there a filter there that could stop the flow of water?

It is nearly impossible that a single problem could cause BOTH the 12 volt and city water systems to fail.

It IS possible that a load of debris of some sort went through the system and has clogged up all faucets and even the toilet.

There is a filter, or should be, just ahead of the demand pump. Usually they are user servicable by removing the clear housing and washing out the screen. Make sure you get the housing seated properly or the pump will suck air into the system and it will drive you nuts trying to figure out what is wrong. Don't ask how I know this.

There is also a kinda sorta filter in the inlet of the city water inlet. There is also a bell shaped pressure regulator that conceivably could fail and shut off the water.

I think I would start with the city water supply, and open connectors, one at a time starting with the inlet to find where you no longer have any water pressure. Once you have that licked it should be easier to go to the demand side and see what is happening.

There is a valve located just under the top lid, rear. (at least on most toilets installed by A/S)
When you say that the water "trikles", are you saying that it does this outside the toilet bowl or, down on the inside of the bowl?
Two summers ago, I discovered water on the floor behind my toilet and, it was due to the valve being defective, leaking.
Just remove the toilet and, install a bypass around the inline valve.
Cheap, works and, no more water problems~!

Hot Water flow to kitchen sink,bath sink and shower

1993 Airstream 30' Excella.

Recently purchased the trailer and now learning the various systems.
HOT WATER FLOW: There is water in the hot water tank, I know this because when I open the outside pressure valve water comes out. Also the hot water flame is working.
PROBLEM: Can't get hot water to the sinks or shower. I'm thinking a valve somewhere is not open that I have not found. One under bed for drainage, Two under bath sink, one under kitchen. Is there a master valve inside or outside that I'm missing???
