Bathroom faucets just trickle

On our first trip with 2019 Freedom express pilot. It was winterized and I sanitized the piping except for bathroom faucets and showers. Kitchen faucets and toilet work fine. The others just trickle. Any ideas? Thanks.

Remove the faucet strainer and you'll probably find construction debris clogging it.

Spot on. Found chunk of plastic in the center hole. Also were four wire screens. I only used one and have spares. Thanks.

Great idea. Found debris plugging it up. Tried without it but flow was too uncontrolled. Thanks.

Having the screen in the faucets is not normally an issue. It is only an issue if there is crud in the lines. Do not drain water heater via the low point drains. It draws the crud from the water heater and some of it will remain in the lines. The next time you use water, it will travel to the faucet screens.

First trailer we owned had no water. the pump filter was literally plugged with sawdust. no idea why the QA QC people do not test this along with satellite cable connections which never seem to work in the correct rooms labelled or at all.

Don't use low point drain for draining water heater

This is a great tip from FlyBob.
I made that mistake last year.
