seems like air in the lines in bathroom

When I turn on the faucet in the bathroom it still seems if there is air in the lines. Did I do something wrong? Is this normal? Its a pretty simple hook up when I pulled in. Also I see two water heaters switches do both of them need to be up one says gas and the other electric. And does it hurt to leave the water pump on all the time as well? Any help for this nu-bee I would be most appreciative.

If you are running on your fresh water tank you can leave the pump on as long as you have plenty of water in the tank. It will cycle on and off as needed. If you are on city water you don't need the pump on at all. The hot water heater switches can both be on or just one depending on how much of fast recovery you use. I use electric only when in camping with full hook ups. Don't turn them on until you have water without air bubbles out of your HW lines. Run each of your faucets one at a time to get the air out of the line. Have fun.

I leave my water heater on electric till shower time then turn on the gas to help. I also leave the water pump on always when using the fresh water tank. Maybe if your tank is empty and your pump is running while your hooked up to city water you are pumping air into the lines with your water pump.

ahh-haa this may be the problem. I have not filled my tank since I am at a park. I have now shut the water pump off and now will bleed the lines and see what happens. Is it also normal not to have a lot of pressure. I know its not home but just didn't know what to expect. Seen it at walk through but now I out here my by self not I noticed it. Thanks again for your response.

Are you using a water flow pressure reducer? I'll leave out my personal opinions on them but if you are at a park using city water you should be. Water pressure is "barely adequate" with these at best. There are some more expensive better ones out there than the cheapies that will give you a little more pressure. I fill my tank and use my pump, I generally get better water pressure that way.

After you bleed your lines you should get rid of the air and popping and gurgling and all.

Water pressure depends on the campground. If it's low then you get low. Do you have an online water pressure reducer attached?

Water pressure varies by location. I've added a pressure regulator to the FW hose to make sure we don't have too much pressure. Most of us replace our shower head with something like an oxygenics. They help make the shower useable.

Sounds like he is drawing water from his FWT via onboard pump. Ie no site water connected , regulator not issue.

I would make sure FWT has enough water in it, run water till all air is out then evaluate your pressure again.

He said "I have not filled my tank since I am at a park." So I would assume that means he is using city water. But we all know about assumptions in this game.

If you want a better regulator try something like this one https://www.amazon.com/Renator-M11-0...TYX/ref=sr_1_3

Depending on the incoming water pressure where you are it can help quite a bit with your pressure over the cheapy fixed ones.
