No water pressure

I'm new to the RV life and I have good water pressure to the RV but I have almost nothing inside. If I turn on a faucet the water will flow full and immediately trickle down to drops. Help please?

Might as well start with pulling the filter screens off all the faucets to flush out all the crap left in the lines.

Then, tell us what rig you have so we can narrow down the problem.

Do you have a water pressure regulator inline of the hose feeding the RV? I find that when I use one of these (designed for RVs) my water pressure drops quite a bit, but when I'm connected directly to the water source with no regulator the pressure is fine.

I had good water pressure in the bathroom but poor water flow coming out of the kitchen tap (we use an inline regulator at the campground pedestal). Took the faucet apart and found another water regulator in there with an even smaller hole. Two options - make the hole bigger or remove the regulator all together. It's now sitting in the spare parts bin and everything works perfectly fine now.

I just bought a new Voltage and this is what happened to me: My faucets had nothing come out of them. Took the faucet nozzles off and cleaned a bunch of crud out of the screens. The shower was also plugged so I had to take the faucet apart and clean out the crud inside. Now the water flows fine throughout the trailer. Guess there is no one blowing out the water lines at the factory.

I have an Ultralite 18'. It's parked in an RV park and I use it every week for several days. I do have a pressure regulator and all was working fine. This last week the issue began and I checked the pressure at the RV inlet and it's good so I don't think it's the pressure regulator. The problem is on the RV side.

water pump location

Mine is located under the entertainment cabinet. The water filter is also located there.

Be careful doing that, my buddy blew a water line after his pressure regulator failed. I know around here, the parks run north of 80psi, which will destroy the fragile plumbing on any camper. It is awesome for my hydroflush.
