2016 350xl water pressure kitchen faucet

We just picked up our 2016 350xl from storage. We have 5k miles on it and purchased it June and have used it about 6 times.



When we got to camp and hooked up the water I noticed the kitchen faucet had very low water pressure. I tried it with water pump on using the tank and city with the same results. I tested all the other areas and noticed that the toilet, and restroom faucet had low to no water pressure.



After reading the posts here I figured out how to clear the restroom and toilet issue by removing the screen. There was a lot of white gunk which I removed with a small aces driver. I know how everything working perfect except the kitchen faucet. I checked and know I have good pressure from the cold water hose to the kitchen faucet. I just don't know where to check for the clog.

Have you removed the water filter and see if that helps?
It may be clogged up with fine silt that many time you can see on the filter.

I had the same problem. Unscrew the screen on the end of the faucet. I'd bet the screen is plugged up.

Yes I did and it did not help.

I did, but the pressure is the same with or without the attachment on. I think the clog is before this point.

Did you check the by pass valves under the coach near the hot water heater to make sure they are in the correct direction?

Yes I did. I have everything except the kitchen sink working fine. It's going in for warranty next week since I've hit a wall. I guess I'll see my rv in a month or so...😢

I read somewhere that if the outside shower valves are not in closed position,it can affect water pressure.

You didn't mention but does your sink have a single handle faucet?

If you do and both the hot and cold is flowing slowly from the kitchen faucet, you'll need to remove the faucet lever and the faucet valve and look for a clog there. If you find nothing there, then you'll need to remove both plumbing lines from the faucet (run the water into a bucket or something similar) and see if in fact they might be plugged somewhere. It's not likely BOTH plumbing lines would get clogged at the same time but if you have no flow with the lines off you'll just have to work backwards towards the pump/city connection looking for blockage.

That's what was wrong with ours.

3rd time out and NO WATER ANYWHERE. All the screens were clogged!
The pull out kitchen faucet has 2 screens. One on the end the other under the counter where the hose attaches. WHAT a pain getting to it.
