Hot water flow in shower

I have hot water flow everywhere and cold. In the shower the cold has flow but only a trickle from hot side. Pulled the valves apart and no obstruction.
The little rubber seal with spring is fine. Any experience with this?

I had same issue, water lines pinched in the slide out. Dealer re-routed and secured lines eliminated pinch this fixed water flow.

It does sound more like a hot water hose restriction somewhere.

Does the shower head flow adequately on cold water? If not mine had little white button with restriction orifices where the hose attaches to the head. I removed the little white orifice and it flowed fine afterwards.

Hot Water Flow Shower

The cold water was never a problem, the hot water line was pinched as a result of poor installation in the slide out.

Once the dealer (not the selling dealership), diagnosed the problem they fixed it relatively easy.

The selling dealership said they fixed it, Thor directed me to another dealer who found the problem in less than 15 minutes.

Well mine miraculously fixed itself! As I said the cold water flowed fine from the shower head but just dripped when only hot turned on. That was when I was connected to the water line from my house.
Later last night when RV was moved and setup for a little camping test run I checked again on the water pump and it works perfectly. It had been winterized by PO and first time I used it.
Pretty strange but I will take it... for now

Jimeastexas. A lightbulb just went off for me. When I had the issue the slide was in and later I put it out. I bet I have the same issue with slide pinching line.
Will dig around and look

Sure enough I opened the access panel under the sink and then ran the slide in. What do you know the hot water line eventually was pinched off. I used some long tie wraps to make a flexible cradle and attached it to the drawer framing. This holds the PEX pipes that connect to the flex hoses up out of a cavity below the hoses. This prevented the hose from being kinked up. FIXED.
Pretty poor design there.

Good deal, agree poor design.

Also my concern was that a pinched line could brake and cause extensive water damage.

The pinched lines will have a weak spot and fail eventually, good idea to replace that section
