    Second Successful Outing

    Just returned from my second outing with my 303, a 5 day trip to Eisenhower State Park on Lake Texoma. The RV was basically flawless. I dropped it off at the dealership today with my "lengthy" 3 item punch list: a window that is very hard to open, a loose piece of trim on the underbelly, and very low water pressure in the kitchen. That's it...I have checked out everything, even temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer, and all works as it should. I am a very happy camper!

    There was another Reflection in the park while I was there, I'm thinking it was either a 317 or a 337. Passed by a few times but never could catch the owners at home to say hello.

    Probably won't get another chance to camp until July due to work schedule taking me around the world a couple of times.

    Hi Steve,

    Re: Water Pressure
    I will be interested to learn what can be done about the low water pressure in the galley. We have exactly the same condition . . . not even enough pressure to engage the sprayer option. The outside shower also has minimal pressure, but the vanity and shower are reasonable.

    Rob that is exactly how mine is working. I mentioned to the dealer that it may just be the way it is, but since the pressure in the bathroom seems normal I don't understand why the kitchen doesn't have enough to engage the sprayer. I will post more information when I get it.

    My 337 has terrible water pressure in the kitchen as well. The sprayer is unusable. Early on I thought maybe the trailer came with a built in water pressure regulator so, since I use one at the spigot, maybe I was dropping the pressure too much but that is apparently not the case.

    I will be eager to hear what your dealer says.

    I have a 40 psi pressure regulator at the spigot and a pressure gauge at the connection to the trailer. Most campgrounds are at less than 35 psi static w/wo the pressure regulator and this drops to less than 30 psi when a tap is opened in the RV.
    My suspicion is that the galley taps have small orifice flow restrictors designed to work a normal city pressure of 50 psi. I was planning to find and drill out these restrictors . . . but will be interested to learn if Steve's dealer has another solution.

    On our 337 the outside shower has no or very little pressure, seems to be good everywhere else. I haven't noticed kitchen being low, but don't really use the sprayer option very often.
    Glad to hear your two trips have been very successful, and that you had a "lengthy" list to be fixed.

    Ah, Lake Texoma. My old stomping ground. Graduated in Bonham, Texas. Interesting to hear on the water pressure. I'll check once ours arrives as well. Maybe there will be a reported fix in the next few days.

    The water pressure at the kitchen faucet in our 337 is also quite low compared to the bathroom fixtures. Thought it could be some construction trash in the lines. Removed the strainer screen but all was clear? I eagerly await a fix for this, very annoying.

    You might check for a kink(s) somewhere. If the PEX is even slightly kinked it will restrict flow. Just a thought.
