See, now we're getting to the real issue. Pressure has to be the same at both of them until you flush - Flow is the issue. So you have restricted flow of cold water to one toilet.

Would that be the master bath toilet? Or the half bath toilet?

Shower, bath sinks and kitchen sinks all have good flow?

Outside shower is turned off at the faucets?

If narrowed down to just one toilet then we have to find the source of the flow restriction - there is no adjustment.

After looking visually as best you can for a bent/crimped water supply line to the offending toilet the next thing I would do is disconnect the supply line from the toilet and test the flow out of it into a bucket or pan. If flow is good there, than it seems to be a toilet issue. If flow is no good there, it's time for a deeper search for that flow obstruction.

Sounds like a flow problem, probably a kinked line from assembly.

I'm not familiar with your floor plan but can you see any pipes around your water tank? Near the water pump? Under the kitchen sink? Behind the drawers?

Two things to consider.
1 - Add water to fresh tank and run water system from pump - is flow good or not?
2 - Connect to city water and test same - is flow good or not?
3 - Is flow control valve in water shed in correct position?

If you have good flow with one connection but not the other other, then the main plumbing is good, and you need to determine where the restriction is (and it may very well be a kinked water line).
If you have poor flow with both supplys, then there is something past the common point (and again this may be a kinked line).
With poor flow of both the hot and cold, it would also suggest that the issue is in teh main supply before the slit to hot / cold systems.

Good luck.

Did this get resolved?
I would walk you through how to tear down the pipes, but your coach is still so new.
The coach should still be under warranty, plus my guess is you are still in the first year of owning it
In the first year, you need to find every single thing that just isn't right and take it in to have it fixed.
So, don't try to hunt this down, have the dealer/service to that

IrnBear

P.S. I have the 35M as well 2018. My guess is they are the same. I have been into the guts of my structure looking for water leaks. So don't hesitate to ask.

Hot and cold? City water of pump driven? Being a new coach, your water lines are probably plugged up with "building debris". Pull strainers off faucets and check for obstructions...check pump strainer for same. Pretty common issue with new RV's in general. Plastic "chips" from drilling fittings into tank(s).

So you've gone from a "1 toilet" and maybe a bath sink problem to a whole house problem?

Check for restrictions as Gritz said.
If only while using the pump check the pump suction strainer. Did you ever find the pump?
If a whole house problem on both pump and city water may be a crimped line as was mentioned earlier if not construction debris in the strainers.
What have you done up to this point to try to remedy the problem other than post here?

ive pulled strainers and water restrictors on the shower,ive also bought a new shower head im going to try.the water coming out of the toilet valve in the bowl is no ware near the pressure of the master toilet. i did pull line to toilet and it seems fine.i want to clean jets in that flush assembly in the toilet but don't want to break it taking what looks like the cap off. maybe i need to live with it until i take it in as its only 2 months old.

all your valves are under the bed, behind/around the water tank.

Here's what I would do with a 2 month old RV with these problems: Define the problem.

Get out a 2 gallon bucket, put 1 gallon of water in it from a measured device (like an old milk jug or clorox bottle) and mark that level on the bucket.
Get your pen and stopwatch (it's right thereon your phone).
Fill the FW tank
Using the pump measure the time it takes to get 1 gallon of water from each of the cold water points with aerators removed, shower head removed, from the supply hose for each toilet, and the outside shower hose with the head removed.

Now you have real data to help you determine where the problem may be if you want to pursue fixing it, or to give to the dealer to show that you have a real problem.

Others with the same model RV may do the same experiment for you for comparison. I can do it on my RV but it's a completely different model with an upgraded pump so it wouldn't be a good comparison. But ask and I'll do it for you.

Do you live out of this machine?
Why have you not taken it to the dealer? You said it is only 2 months old.
Stop futzing with stuff and take it in.
You mess something up in your search, it's now your problem.
