Water pressure problem at bathroom sink.

We are leaving for Colorado on 5/23 and when I turn on the hot or cold water at the bathroom sink, it comes out as a trickle. The kitchen sink and shower is tolerable but I was wondering if there is something we should be checking. We have a forest river 2010 Lexington 255 Double sided that we just bought. We are new to this so any help would be great.

Where is the camper stored during winter? Possibly broken water line? Take the faucet apart and see if it's plugged. Also,is this with city water or pump? Any leaks noticed anywhere?

Unscrew the spigot screen and clean it. If there is crud in the water lines, especially hot water, it will clog the screen and prevent any water from flowing out.

Hit enter too soon. Sorry. The reason was in a garage. We just bought it last month. Thanks for the info. Will check this out. We have it hooked up to city water right now but we are going to be putting in fresh water before we leave. We will be storing this in our barn during winter. No leaks are noticed and we have had the water on for about 2 weeks.

Mine was like the same way when it was brand new. I unscrewed the screen and found some debris in the screen now it works perfect.

very common for sawdust and other debris to get caught in the screen of taps. Start by taking the screen off the tap and go from there.

Flybob is dead on the money for most problems like that the little screen in the faucet gets plugged with debris. Clean it out and all will be right with the world.
