Water pressure

Just got ourselves in Montana fifth wheel RV we have it hooked up to the City water supply but the pressure is very low. I've checked the connections filters hoses somehow the pressure to kitchen and bathroom was low. Trying to find out if anybody has any ideas as to a way to increase the water pressure or if there is a external pump that can be placed on the line to help increase water pressure not sure. Please help 😁

We keep our fresh water tank full, and there are times when we have been places with low city water pressure and we just turn on the water pump if we want better pressure to take a shower or wash dishes. We turn it off when done because there is usually enough pressure to flush the toilet or wash our hands. There is no need to turn off the city water source either.

You don't say if your rig is new or used. If used, check in the faucets and see if the screens are clogged. When we bought our 2013 we had to clean them all out and the kitchen faucet had them in two places.

We have had to do this too. But also check your inlet hose and make sure nothing got in it when you turn on the water it would get pushed to screen and reduce water pressure dont ask how i know this.

Remove the screen at the end of the kitchen and bathroom sink faucet and see if the water flows better. Those screens on the airiator get clogged real easy. So, remove them and see if water flows better. If so, it's just those little screens that need cleaned up.
