How to unclog shower lines

I need some help how to unclog the shower lines of my 2000 210 Maristar. I thought the pump was weak (2 gal/min), so I bought a nice strong one (4.5 gal/min), but water still just basically dribbles out of the shower. Guessing I need to unclog the lines. Does anyone have directions for the best way of blowing out the lines? Note: I cannot access the hole in the bottom of the boat where water comes in because the trailer bunk is in the way.

Thank you very much!

Not speaking from boat shower experience but typically the head is the place that clogs. Pull this apart and see how it looks. I imagine it might have some scale/ flake that could be clogging it up.

When I first got my boat the shower was clogged. I just undid all the connections -- pump, shower head, cold/hot mixer -- and blew them out. I had a lot of sand in mine. There were a couple of small screens that were plugged up.
Also check for scale and debris in the outlet on the manifold or the block (whenever your hot comes from.)

I replaced the head, so that is not it.

Thank you! I will try to disconnect every line I can.
