bathroom faucet pressure

We have a brand new 3010DS and we are on our first trip with it. When we first hooked up to city water the water pressure was great. Now the bathroom faucets is like hardly any pressure at all. The kitchen faucets are fine as is the shower both inside and outside. Has anyone experienced this problem, if so what was your solution. Thanks.

Try unscrewing the aeration screen at the end of the faucet...might have some junk in the line from assembly blocking it?

I tried to unscrew the aeration, but these cheap faucets don't allow that, so I just pulled the screen off but to no avail the water pressure is still very low. Thanks anyway!

Need more data. Are both the cold and hot weak flow? If it is just one line my first thought would be to drain the fresh tank, leave the drain open, and shoot compressed air in the reverse direction in case a peice of trash is reducing the flow. Are the lines frozen?
Is this condition occuring on city and internal water?

If all else fails run the coach over to my house and we fix'er up. Go to ATL and turn right... If you get lost just ask anybody...

Both hot and cold lines are affected. We are down by south padre island in Texas at a RV resort and connected to city water. We had great water pressure for a month in the bathroom faucets. The water pressure in the kitchen and shower (both inside and outside) has been great. When we first got to the RV resort we dewinterized so the lines were never frozen. Since I am not about to go north for some time, come on down to some nice weather and we can discuss over some beers! Thanks

What a puzzle... Both the hot and cold are weak stream on only one single facet. The facet has two seperate valves. I would throw 15 gallons in the fresh water tank, turn off the city water, and re test. Is there a slide any where near the lines, a pinch maybe?
Also, do you have a pressure guage on it, and what does it read?


I'll email my boss and leave him a message. I will tell him that a service call came in after work, and as we all know the customer comes first. I hooking up the toad as we speak.

I may have to give HR a note when I return....

OP, by chance does your city water cut in at/immediately near the lavatory faucet plumbing? I'm not at all familiar with your coach. I ask because I once encountered a plumbing arrangement like this that required a check so that when pumping from the freshwater tank the water was not forced our the city water inlet. Well, someone at the factory oriented the check wrong in the line and it restricted flow to the lavatory faucet. A thought to explore.

Sounds like an obstuction lodged in the faucet itself. Otherwise, the hot or cold would have different flow rates. I agree that you should change the faucet out since your unable to clear the obstuction. Let us know what the solution turns out to be. Thanks
