Question Horrid water pressure in Kitchen

I have a 2011 TT (30WRLTS) and my kitchen sink pressure is horrid! Bathroom pressure is good. I have heard about water restrictors, but cant seem to find it/them if indeed they are there. Any suggestions? I have checked the screens to see if they were clogged, there were actually about 7 of them in there, so I removed all but one and this didn't help. The restriction seems to be between the end of the hose (with spray head removed) and somewhere beyond. Please HELP!
Much Thanks in advance!

I thought maybe you had a kinked supply line but if both the hot and cold water are restricted that theory is all wet. (pun intended)
Same applies to a blocked water filter because it only filters the cold water.
Is the water restricted when you're connected to city pressure or just when running off the 12v pump?
You could try removing the water lines from the faucet to see how much flow you have when the faucet is bypassed. The issue may be in the faucet itself.
Since it's a 2011 it's probably still under warranty so you have the option of taking to the dealer for an inspection.
Good luck.

Once you have eliminated the spray head as the problem. It is a dealer issue. Sawdust and construction junk can get into the PEX tubing and clog the valve body of the kitchen faucet. Replacement is your only option if this is the case.

Is your kitchen sink on a slide? maybe it is kinking when slide goes out?

It's not on a slide and I am connected to city water. When the pump is engaged the pressure is fine! Truly perplexing!

Ditto on the "Truly Perplexing". The pump output and city water input should come together at a "T" fitting, then route to the kitchen. Pressure, good or bad, should be the same.

Excellent thought. What is the pressure like at the hose? Try removing the regulator and see if the screen is clogged or the check valve in the city water port is stuck.
