Regardless of where we camp, our shower pressure is very low. Anyone have any ideas?

On ours there was a small water-saver restricting washer(small hole) where the hose hooks to the wall side, also just before the handle. I replaced both and water flow increased for us.
Might try this easy fix first...

Is your water pressure low on shore water and your 12V pump?

The white stuff is caused by HARD WATER lime deposits. We had that our first year RVing. After flushing the junk out of the water heater cleaning the faucets in the kitchen,bathroom and shower we bought a Watersoftner and Carbon pre filter.
No more problems.. it does work

We had the same problem, which is inherant with RVs and then changed out the shower head to Oxygenics. Check out the many happy reviews on this site about these shower heads.

I did have trouble with my kitchen faucet clogging up with that white stuff, just after sanatizing my tank and lines. I just rinsed off the screen in the faucet and it worked just fine. Thats the E Z fix for me.

Thanks, FrontRangeRVer!! I had been eyeing the Oxygenics shower hear but wondered if they measured up to the claims in the advertisements. Anything is an improvement over what I've got - and I haven't had a problem with the white stuff . . .

Do you have an adjustable pressure regulator. The standard ones are set at 40lbs, we picked up one at FMCA and set it for 50lbs. I was told I could go higher, but this was enough to increase shower pressure. Just recently the hot water pressure in the show started dropping significantly. It appears the shower valve failed/slipped/whatever. I noted in a previous post today that Moen sent a new valve, and replacement was fairly simple...even for me.

Thanks everyone for your help. I think I'll try a new shower head.

I highly recommend this unit from W-M. Inexpensive and it puts out 2.5 gal/min.
