Low Water pressure in 98 classic

Just bought this 98 34 classic and noticed today that the ater pressure is low at kitchen sink.Took shower last night in it and it seemed low there too but chalked it up to a halfway stopped up shower head but now Im rethinking that.Pressure at the hose is good Ive camped here before,is there a way to turn up the pressure???

Don`t know what pressure regulator you have,but most of them have a screw&locknut on it`s top loosen the locknut,and I thinkyou turn it in to increase pressure.You should attach a gauge to the supply line on the sink so you can monitor what you have before and after. Dave

I also had this same problem. The cause was trash in the check valve. This would let some water through and pressure would build up in the lines. As soon as a faucet was opened the pressure would drop until just enough pressure to let water flow was left. Took the check valve out just to check it before working on the pressure regulator since that was fine before and waa-laa found a little trash in the check valve. Cleaned it and re-assembled. Fixed the problem.

I have experienced the same condition. where exactly would I find the pressure regulator and check valve on a 2001 classic ?
Thanks for any help,

I'm not sure on your year, but it should be close to the city water connection. The check valve is the first thing the water line see's after it enters the trailer. the regulator is the next part in the system. Just follow the line after it comes into the trailer and you will find them.
Mine is under the curbside bed next to the water heater, (86 Excella)
Hope this helps
