I hate to admitt this but I recently changed my shower head to one of those Oxygenic's ...I put it all together and the water just trickled out, Took it all apart, checked all the lines, took the shower head apart and then put it all back together again and the same thing ....trickle trickle, I finally realized there was a twist type shut off on the actual shower head handle. Oh well, works perfect now! LoL :oThanks Dwight, I think those products should be left in the ON position from the factory, I've had plenty of those experiences with many products... I might be a tad slow at times... :S
See ya at Anaheim!
Old Biscuit! You were right! I took the hose off the faucet end and had plenty of pressure! I forced some air through the hose and put the hose back on and it worked!
Now the bad part... there were two little pieces that came out when I took the hose off the faucet end, so now I need the schematic to see what goes where! Theres a little black grommet looking thing that might be what The Weekenders was referencing, chamfered on one end and a flap in the middle. That might have been what was "stuck". Then theres a little white round plastic thin washer that looks keyed, but to which end I dunno! (have to work on my disassembly skills). Either way, i put it back best I could figure and the pressure is great!
Thanks everyone! Ya'll are 100x more valuable than any dealer and you didn't cost me any gas money!
Thanks Steve, but no, I pressed the water saving button in and out with much frustration, which lead to me taking off the head all together with same low pressure results. I will take the entire hose off in about an hour and post results.
Since thinking about it, I will try hooking up to my home water and see if I can get it to kick start.
Maybe I dont prime the lines properly, is there an upstream/downstream point maybe I should start with as a standard? Like opening up the front sink hot for 10 seconds, then back sink cold, then stand on one leg and pat my head? I'm sure it all depends on my hoses and pump location tho.
My last two campers have been brand new to avoid stuff like this, very frustrating, but maybe its not karma, its my technique? I just hate going to the dealer to try to defend myself for warranty claims, they make us feel like bad people, I am not bad, just want mah stuff to work! I tried avoiding this dealer on the last purchase, but they had the best price (and a rare Chevy chassis at a Ford dealer) in the state.
Oh... just the shower head I removed, I'll take the shower hose all the way off and try again...just to be sure.
I did run both hot and cold, and just cold and just hot, but no change in drizzle. Faster than a drip but slower than pouring a glass of water in a cup.
We have used the shower quite a lot actually and first time we've had this problem.
Then I wonder if the outside switch at the panel pulls from the car battery, not the house battery? There is a "jumper" switch on the drivers seat that I thought had to be pressed to accomplish that. I haven't had to use that yet. I pull the start trigger on the outside and away it goes within one or two cranks.
So you think this is normal then, no reason for warranty work?
I gots to get my solar panels on, just wating on money... cmon money!
Hi everyone, this weekend at the beach (dry camping) we went in for a nice shower at the end of the day but there was no pressure at the shower, just drizzled out. It started with a couple of pumps of air like it would normally start when pushing water through the line, but then nothing.
I took off the shower head and still drizzled out. The water pump would cycle about every 10 seconds but no pressure increase during its cycle.
Sink ran fine, pump would stay on as long as running the water.
Is there some way to check the line to the shower, or push it through? Is this an "air lock"? I am in my warranty period, is this something I can take it in for? Do I need to prime the lines? Why wouldnt it be the same for the sink?
Been a while since I last posted, hope everyone had a great summer!
Thanks for your guidance!
Hey everyone, I have a new 2012 Sunseeker 2250 with the 40G Guardian generator. When the batteries are around 1/3rd, the gen wont start, will click, then nothing. Isn't that what generators are for? Charging low batteries?
Thing is, thats only from the inside switch. I go outside open the panel and hit the start button out there, vroom. No need to prime, just turns right over. This isn't normal procedure is it? I've tried prime from inside, then crank, but still nothing, I have to go outside every time the highly accurate battery gauge goes from 2/3 to 1/3.
The coach is still in its one year warranty, but I wanted RV.Nets professional opinion before I take it to the amateurs at the dealer. I don't want to go fussing with ground wires and trying things when you guys think it should be warranty work.
Thanks for your help.
