Water Pressure at bibb but not in RV.

I have 50 lbs. of pressure at the hose Bib but can barley flush the toilet. The inline filter is only two weeks old. Is there somewhere else I can check to see why the pressure is non-existent.

Is the toilet the only fixture where you have low water pressure, or is it with all fixtures? Was it a sudden drop in pressure, or gradual?

And it is inconsistent. Sometimes the pressure is better and sometimes not.

There's a check valve that might be part of the water pump or near it. That's going to be the problem I believe.

I'd check the hose inlet connection...there's a screen washer that sometimes get debris in it. Also, you mentioned recently changing your water filter. I used to get super efficient inline water filters...found out that they really dropped my water pressure. The only other thing I can think of is maybe the inlet check valve maybe malfunctioning.

There is also a screen filter just before the inlet side of the water pump.
