CLR......available at any good hardware store, is great for cleaning these. Also great for cleaning the shower heads in your RV AND at home.
We clean all of ours in CLR also. We have also noticed that it isn't uncommon to find little pieces of sand and grit in there if you use a campground that pumps from a well. Even with a filter we have still had some get through.

This might be a good excuse to put in an aerator valve. We have one installed in the bathroom of our 350DS.

You unscrew your aerator and screw this little water saver on. It has a plastic stick that hangs down from the center of the aerator. Water will only flow when you push or pull the stick gently to the side.

For instance when you wash your hands no water flows while your soaping and scrubbing your hands.

We got ours at Home Depot. This is the only place I could find them on-line so that you could see what I'm talking about. I don't know anything about this web site.

Also if your aerator is hard to clean, just grab another one at home depot or lowes. Take it in with you when you go and they'll make sure you get the right one. They're only a couple bucks, heck buy a handful and keep them in a drawer.

I have had that happen also and took out the aerator to clean but that was not the problem. The problem was under the single lever handle.
You push it left for hot and right for cold and there are two washers and two little springs under there and one of the little round O rings came loose and wounldn't let any water pass through.
Now I'm not saying this is your problem but if you can't fix it by cleaning the aerator that might be another place to look.
Now while I have everyones attention, does anyone know where to get replacement shoower faucet knobs? They are ony plastic and when I turned the hot water on it just snapped. I went to a couple rv dealers no luck. Left a message for Glenn in the parts dept of FR no call back yet.
They are made by Dura Faucet Manuf. I can order the whole faucet set up, but I only need the knobs in fact I only need one. Oh I also been to Lowes and HomeDepot. I'm out of ideas now so any help you can give will be appreciated.

I worked at home depot for 3 years and they do have universal handles that will fit most everything. Take the good handle with you.

The aerator on my bathroom faucet pushes up and down and spins and I can't seem to unscrew it. Anyone else have anything like this?

Water was coming out of the vents on outside of the coach. It is behind the refrigerator. Looks like a little plastic cap has a hole in it. Is this easy to replace? Also, a strong propane odor coming from the same spot. What do you think is wrong? Is this dangerous?

Water coming out of that hose is normal. It the the condensation drain for the fridge. Just make sure the hose is routed to the outside of the fridge vents so the water does not pool in the camper.

Smelling propane there is not normal.
