Kitchen sink water pressure

So Iím having issues with the kitchen sink in my 2017 Stealth 2916G. Whether hooked to city water or running off the pump the sink in the kitchen has no pressure, just a trickle on both the cold water and hot water. Every other sink, toilet, or shower in the trailer works perfectly except for the kitchen sink. Due to the position of the sink in the slide out as well as all of the plumbing under the trailer being enclosed it is really difficult to get to the plumbing and my warranty just expired in March (go figure right). Just kind of wondering where I should start looking to remedy this issue. I have tried a few things such as blowing air through the lines and draining the water heater but nothing seems to be working. Thanks for anyoneís help!

Have you taken the strainer off of the faucet outlet to see if it's plugged?

Yeah I did, also took the head off completely so that the water could free drain and itís still just a trickle.

Happens with almost every new RV and 9 out of 10 times, it's the faucet aerator/strainer.

Iím not thinking itís the pump just because every other faucet/water outlet runs perfect. Has anyone ever seen lines get bent or clogged?

Iím also noticing when running the pump that when I turn the kitchen sink on the pump barely runs, but when I kick the sink in the bathroom on the pump runs strong like it normally would.

Yes because there is little/No water flow so pump does NOT need to run! Remove supply line under sink a try again!This will test the fixture! Youroo!!

I have the Shockwave T29KSGDX which is basically the same unit you have. Had numerous plumbing problems after delivery two months ago. Toilet flushed with Hot water. Cold and hot water hooked up backwards etc.

None of your plumbing is underneath except water tank to pump. All plumbing is under the floor and somewhat accessible. Access panel on backside of kitchen sink and plumbing for sink will probably show a kinked line or some restriction. I would look there first and track the problem back from the sink itself. Only thing it could be if other sources have good flow.

Kitchen sink water pressure

Update...well I was able to figure it out and it seems to have been a combination of two things. Yesterday when I pulled the plug on my water heater I noticed an extremely high amount of that calcium crap in the water (and I mean more than I have ever seen in any of my previous toy haulers) so after tinkering last night a bit more this morning I ended up taking the entire kitchen sink apart and blowing all of the lines out with an air hose and wouldnít you know it several large chunks of that deposit came shooting out. After doing this I took the sink head apart and cleaned it with CLR really well then put everything back together and wouldnít you know it we had pressure again. Im not sure what the deal with the water heater is but I rinsed it out really good and cleaned the rod off so hopefully it was just a situation of the trailer still being fairly new. Thanks for everyoneís suggestions and help on getting his figured out!
