LOW WATER PRESSURE IN RV
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR TROUBLESHOOTING
RV Water Pressure Problems? No water pressure in RV? In this video, I’ll show you how to fix RV Water pressure problems in your RV Shower or RV Sink. I’m sharing RV Water Pressure Tips and Tricks for how to increase water pressure in rv.
After Turning on the RV Water Pump, I still wasn’t getting any water pressure in my RV bathroom. These two simple solutions helped my fix the issue I was having with getting water pressure while boondocking and trying to use my fresh water tank.
NO WATER PRESSURE
We have been camping or boondocking, and in my RV sometimes there are issues. I just picked up my RV yesterday and noticed that I didn’t have any water pressure. I said, “Why do I not have any water pressure?” Also, I notice that my water pump was just continuously running.
In the video, you can see that our tank level shows that there is fresh water in it, so I’m not stupid. In order to get the water to pump, because we are boondocking, you have to turn the water pump on (My water pump switch is located in a few different spots, but one should be in the bathroom).
You can hear it pumping, but the water just trickles out. There is no pressure. All we get is a trickle in the bathroom sink and shower. Uggg “I feel like something is going on in the backend that I need to know about.”
- No water pressure.
- My water pump was continuously running.
- I tried to turn on my heating system and get heat to the water, which told me something else was off because I got an attentional alert about my gas saying that there was a propane issue with my gas level.
NEXT… I said, okay, well what could be wrong with it? Going through a few things, help me figure out what was wrong with the unit.
HOW TO INCREASE WATER PRESSURE IN RV
Now that I’ve figured out what’s going on, I’m going to show you two simple fixes that could have been done before we picked up the RV, but they filled up the RV with propane and they filled up the RV water, but there were two things that they didn’t do and didn’t tell us. Let’s go outside and I’ll show them to you because it fixed my problem and it saved me three, four hours at the RV dealership and it kept me on the road.
- FRESH WATER TANK FILL VALVE – I came to check out my valves outside, figured out there was a few things wrong.The fresh water / tank fill valve was turned to take fill (instead of normal). Because it’s actually filling the tank. The tank fill valve needed to be on normal to give me water pressure. Seriously it was that simple of a fix?!? That’s what you have to do. That gave me water pressure just by turning the tank fill valve from tank fill to normal.
- PROPANE GAS VALVE – Then, my gas and propane, valve just need to be actually turned on! I wasn’t getting anything inside and what I had to do was just turn the the valve to give it some gas. The propane tank tells you which way to turn the nob for your unit. Mine says close to the right and open to the left. And, mine was actually closed, which is throwing my valve off. All it did was just turn it all the way open, so you just have to turn it one way or the other — just read. To close it, turn it to the right and to open it turn it to the left.
That solved my LOW to NO RV Water Pressure Problems!
