Trailer: Bigfoot 17 ft

Recently purchased 1993 BIGFOOT 17 and have gone through water systems. Have questions for any of you experienced out there with system, and can explain it to me. I am surprised no schematics came with RV from manufaturer.
When you connect to house water, (I bought a 40psi regulator) does this bypass the water tanks and lines?
The shurflo water pump does not cycle off. Checked for leaks and couldnt find any.
Does this water pump have to be on when using water, and CONNECTED to house water?
Water heater appears to work, however in the shower and sink it runs warm/cold/warm.
I have already cut and added an elbow where the exterior water fill made a 90 degree turn, and restricted the flow. Now Fixed.
I also added an elbow to the inline clear tubing coming from the water pump so that IT was not restricted. (Poor designs which I solved the same way previously in my boat.)
Water pressure seems very low, however I cannot compare without seeing another BIGFOOT or similar system. There is also the stuttering in system which I think is air in the line. I let it run for a long time and it does not seem to have cleared. Any help and advice appreciated.
