Water pressure

We suddenly lost water pressure. Checked screens and filters. Help don't have enough pressure to flush toilet well and shower are nightmare. Is there only the one regulator in the inflow valve? We have a 2014. Mt Rushmore

Do you have a pressure regulator on your city water hose. Often the screen in the regulator gets clogged. Disconnect and see if water flows thru the regulator, if not, clean it or replace it.

If you pull the hose off the camper, how is the pressure there? Bad pressure? Regulator failure or site pressure. Good pressure? Something in the camper. Try each faucet 1 at a time, from front to back, to see where pressure drops.

Thanks. We did not have pressure reg on hose to water supply( will in future!). The drop was quick. We had great water pressure in morning then almost none in afternoon It was not slow like a clog.

Low pressure, but not slow? Without a pressure gauge in the system, how then are you assessing low pressure? As others have suggested, you need to get outside, and:
1. Check the flow and the pressure from the campground, through any connectors, to your hose BEFORE it enters the RV. If you don't have a gauge, you can "feel" the pressure by putting a nozzle on the hose, and seeing how much it "rushes" when you open it.
2. While you have the hose off of the RV, check your RV city water connection. Is the screen clean?
3. Reconnect the hose to the RV, and turn the water back on. If all was OK outside, but now is "slow" inside, you have an RV problem.
