Low hot water pressure shower only

I have very low water pressure for the hot water in the shower. The cold is fine, and hot water pressure is fine elsewhere.

The shower and toilet are on the opposite side of the trailer from my kitchen and bathroom sinks. My dh thinks there may be a valve in the storage compartment that is not all the way open, but there is a partial wall in the way.

Has anyone heard of anything like this before?

I have added my info to my signature, but it doesn't seem to be showing up. So I have a 1998 carri-lite 34' 5th wheel with rear lounge slide.

If you disconnect the shower hose from the taps is the pressure still low? How is the bathroom sink pressure? Are outside shower taps turned OFF? Does it appear that maybe the shower head is plugged with water calcium? Is it new to you trailer or just started ? No kinks in the hose ?

Get accesss to the rear of the shower taps and disconnect both hot and cold and make surethere is no white crap stuck inside the hot side at the connection point . Maybe take off whole tap assembly and clean out . I bet it is the water heater gunk that is plugging something . Also somehow turn the water pump on while towels wrapped around open hoses to flush out gunk if it is in there.

The trailer is new to me. The shower head is new.
Bathroom sink pressure is fine. Cold water pressure in the shower is fine.

I have seen where plastic shower hoses can get twisted up inside the hose. The problem is more than likely at the shower valve, hose or head.

So when you remove the complete shower assembly including the hose, is the pressure still low? If you can rule out the shower and the pressure is fine at the sink its narrowing down problem area, like maybe a kink in the hot below the shower. This is a shower right, not a shower/bathtub?

Water pressure

Calcium buildup in the faucet.
