My old trailer had a screen on the faucet which would plug up after sitting all winter. Generally after a half hour of screwing around trying to get water, I would remember to take the screen out and clean it.

is ur sprayhead also ur water outlet for the sink (is the spray head selectable...spray or steady stream)? am i reading correctly that the pressure is ok with the head removed?
i have a kitchen faucet in my home like that. when i disassembled the head, the water ports are very small.
if this is the case, a different brand faucet could solve the problem.

We are having the exact same problem in our 2011 Berkshire 36FWS. Water pressure hot & cold in the bath sink is great, but the kitchen sink hot & cold is not really useable when connected to city water. We have replaced the pressure regulator we use when on city water. Our kitchen sink is on a slide and the bath is not. I have checked all the shutoff valves and checked all I can think of. Unless someone has an idea I guess we will have to deal with it till we get back home to the dealer.

Look for:

A pinched flex water hose (under slide)

Crud in the aerator screen.

Crud in valves or fittings.

We have checked everything you mentioned except I have not taken the single handle faucet apart in the kitchen to check it. I'm beginning to think it has to do with the actual faucet and perhaps because it's a single handle and not dual handle like the bathroom.

it's probably going to be back to the dealer.
the only thing left is to back wash from the faucet back. i say turn the water off and open the faucet at the lavatory or shower and see if u can force water back (apply water via external hose at kitchen faucet. allow to drain out at shower).
if it is compressed debris, reversing flow is likely to dislodge it).

It's new - so do it under warranty, but if it weren't I'd start at the spigot and work out from there. Including the connection hose. Is it possible that a rubber washer got blown down the hose? What is weird is that the bath pressure is fine and the kitchen is not, but still start at the source.

I had horrible water pressure at my kitchen faucet also. I replaced the kitchen faucet due to a broken handle and the new faucet had unbelivable water pressure! Just like in my house!

There is a one-way check valve or when you are on city water, designed to keep from back-feeding your pump and fresh water tank. Sounds like it may be installed backwards, and that the the little bit of water that you are getting is what you are squeezing past it...
