Low water pressure in the shower

Hello all and thanks in advanced for some advice. I have a 2018 CR-zinger 288RR toy hauler. My water pump went out. (internal wiring fell apart) I replaced it with a new pump that was bigger faster and stronger. ( according to the specs.) Before it went out I had sufficient water pressure in the shower to take a reasonable shower. I put the new pump in and went through and ran water through all the lines. (sink, outside shower, toilet, and shower) When I got to the shower on hot or cold I just get a more than a trickle but not a shower spray. The new pump surges as to say not a constant on. I was told that is how it works but I am not sure on that. I get great pressure in the sink and the toilet and even the outside shower. This is a problem that happens when running off of tank water. I have yet to use the shower on city water. Any ideas on what to trouble shoot would be great!!

Hello to a fellow Missourian.

Try taking the shower head odd the hose to see if you have good flow/pressure there. The pump cycling on/off leads to it building pressure but it is not coming out the shower head. Could be something in the head partly blocking it. Also while your in there check the restrictor or remove it your choice.

Let us know if that works or not. Someone else probably has another thing to check. Lots of help folks here.

Also, make sure the ON/OFF button on the shower head is in the on position. I believe in the OFF position there will still be a trickle of water that will come out. Not sure of the reason for that but may be to conserve water while showering or to let the water get to the right temperature before you turn it fully ON.

Just a thought.
