Hi new to motorhoming after caravaning for 30 years. Having our first weekend in our Burstner Lyseo but find the water pressure low compared with the caravan. Also the toilet flush is low. The pump is running at the tank. Any advice would be appreciated

The pumps fitted into the tanks are much lower pressure and flow than stand alone pumps.
I am used to my Burstner now and I find it adequate, even for a shower. Any more pressure would also empty the tank quicker and as we don't use sites it becomes important to save water. It's also the reason we don't flush the toilet.

Thank you for your reply I guessed it was possibly normal to save water. We are still finding our way with the new motorhome and compare with the caravan. We are really pleased with it the build quality superb.

Hi. Our old Burstner Argos also had low water pressure, but we got used to it. Our latest vans pressure has much more power to it, but we get through water quicker than the Argos, overcome by a larger fresh water tank. đź‘Ť

Has the vehicle been fitted with an aftermarket in-line water filter which can reduce pressure?

You will find that unlike caravans with a motorhome there are many places to stop overnight 'Off Grid' or 'wild camping'
In Europe there are thousands of free Aires to choose from.
