Kitchen sink isnít working

Hi All!

We purchased a 2011 Surveyor sp260 here a month ago.

Hereís the situation. We winterized the camper shortly after we got it.

This weekend is supposed to be in the 50ís so we decided to take it out on our maiden voyage.

FT has antifreeze in it but we wanted to still use the toilet and sink.

I connected the city water to the camper, utilizing my filter and my pressure regulator and turned it on.

I flushed the antifreeze out of my toilet and bathroom sink just fine.

The problem is with the kitchen sink. The antifreeze flushed out and then I got black colored water coming out and then nada. Nothin else. Itís as if the kitchen sink is connected to the FT but that doesnít make sense to me.

Anyone have any input?

Are you still getting water at the toilet and shower?

Did the black water come from a bad water filter? Maybe its defective and blocking the water flow.

The water filter is brand new.

Iíve got clear water to the toilet and the bathtub and sink in the bathroom.

I also just turned the water pump on and tried to get water from the FT to the sinks. Bath sink worked but again the kitchen sink didnít pump any water at all.

Does the faucet have a screen nozzle? If so it might be clogged. Unscrew it off the faucet and see if the water runs..

Well I had antifreeze coming out of the sink at the beginning of the evening when I went to flush the antifreeze out of the kitchen sink. It turned into black colored water. Then the black water stopped and I donít have anything coming out now- with the pump or the city water.

The previous 2 post probably pointed to your problem. I donít know what the black stuff was but it was probably followed by some black crud that has clogged the fine screen filter on the end of your sink faucet. Do as suggested and unscrew this filter then check water flow.
