water trickles

2016 Outlaw 38RF. A few days ago the water flow from city water to the fixtures started slowing to a trickle. In Normal position, tank to fixtures using the pump gives reasonable flow. City water to tank seems to have good flow. It took a reasonable amount of time to top off half a tank.

I'm staying at a dealership/campground so there is a maintenance crew here. Troubleshooting sonfar has not produced any solid clues. I am of the opinion the selector valve must have a blockage in the city to fixtures line. Didn't get to spend a lotnof time on it today so didn't make much progress.

Anyone have a similar issue with the water inlet selector valve?

If you have a pressure device hooked to hose unhook the hose and see how the flow is thru just the device. Next if you have screen washers in your hose check to see if they're plugged. Easy things to check first.

Flow though all of the accesories is good since the same line in fills the tank and that flow seems to be OK. Line was disconnected beynod the whole house filter and flow is good to that point.

Since I am not familiar with the plumbing on an Outlaw I am out of suggestions, thought I would mention the easy stuff just in case. I had a regulator plug up once, overlooked it several times before finally figuring out that was the problem.

I am guessing it is either in the city water delivery pressure or it is in the switch valve. If you have fresh water pump pressure then that discounts any type of blockage in a cold water feed line.

The only issue I ever had was with the plastic T between my two brass switch fittings. It was cross threaded and leaked but only slightly effected city water pressure.

I have complete detailed drawings from Thor but I don't think they listed the part number for that switch valve. Warranty?
