water pressure

We have very poor water presure in our 2011 Redwood 39' fifth-wheel. The incoming water pressure is fine. We have changed the water filter but no change. is there a water regulator valve that can be adjusted?
Thanks

You didn't say, so I'm assuming you are hooked to city water???
Is the poor pressure thru out the coach, or just certain faucets/taps?
If just some taps, check and see if the aerator screens are plugged. Is there an inline screen where you hook to the coach?

water pressure

We are hooked up to a well water system in our RV Park. Everyone else that I have talked to has great water pressure in their trailer. The water pressure is poor in all the taps. I joke and say that I have to run around in my shower to get wet...Ha Ha!
I don't know of an inline screen.

Unhook the hose, and see if there is a screen where it screws into the coach.
If that's OK, have you taken the shower head off and inspected that?

for the shower, get an oxygenics shower head as it will give you more pressure while using less water.

We just got back from our weekend at our trailer. We soaked all the ariators in CLR to make sure they were not plugged. Still no pressure. So as a last resort, we took out the filter to see what would happen and hooray, the pressure improved immensely. We soon discovered that the filter we had was too fine for our system. We talked to a plumber at the park and he gave us a different filter to try. Problem solved. We hope this will help someone else in the future.
P.S. Did I mention that we are "Newbies"?

speaking of filters and water pressure, make sure ou have water pressure regulator on so you don't blow your lines out with too much pressure. You can get these cheap at Walmart.

Heather - welcome and congratulations on purchasing a Redwood. We have a 2013 36FL and it is also our first coach.

In addition to this forum you can also get great information from the Redwood forum, which can be accessed through the RW website or Google.
