Low Water Pressure Galley and Shower

I am puzzled that the water flow pressure at the galley sink and the shower is no comparison to the water pressure at the bath lavatory.
According to the plumbing diagram, I find no valves that would affect the water flow on the opposite side of the trailer.
Am I overlooking something I should be aware of that might impede the water flow to the shower and galley side of the trailer?
Suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a similar problem when connected to "city water." I always have good water pressure in the bath, both shower and sink. However, the pressure in the kitchen sink seems to fluate, at times good and other times no so good. I have replaced the works in the faucet (Moen) but that has not corected the issue. I wish I had the answer.


Remember its not the destination, but rather the journey.... its what's in the middle that matters the most!

Have you taken apart and cleaned the screen strainers on the end of the faucets? I think the shower may have one on it somewhere also. The shore water usually has a screen where the hose is hooked up, check that for blockage also.

Yes, check the screens in the faucets and the holes in the shower head. It is real common for them to get plugged up and cause issues like those you describe.
