Low water pressure

I have a 2010 8313SS that I've had for about 2 months. Used it once so far. I'm having low water pressure on my kitchen faucet on shore water. My sink has one of the sprayer built into faucet. My shower and bathroom sink have good pressure. I've taken the screen out and checked for debris and taken the sprayer off to check as well.

Any ideas on what to look for next?

I have the same problem in my 2010 Flagstaff.

I had crud in the aerator but it only helped a little. I believe they put a "low flow" faucet with an internal retrictor so it would limit water usage.
Just a guess, but the symptoms seem to lean that way.

I may take it apart one day and look at the guts.

I have the same problem with my spray kitchen sink faucet. It does ok with the sprayer on but regular it has low pressure. I cleaned it as well. Didn't help much. Found plenty of sawdust ect. in all my screens.

I could see the "low flow" argument if it were happening in the bathroom sink too. I'm not sure what else to take apart to check for debris. Might try giving FR a call and see what they have to say.

I would say buy them leaving pluming laying around while cutting is being done. They factory is properly a saw dust bomb.

All the faucets in the RV have flow restrictors. The kitchen faucet restictor is either in the aerator as a plastic disc with a small hole in it or it's in the base of the goose neck. Some are removable and some have to be drilled out. There also may be screens in the supply fittings where it connects to the plumbing that may be clogged with construction debris.

I checked the bath & kitchen faucets & the restrictors are in the aerator & are removable. I also found that each faucet has 3 screens. Would that be overkill? I would think 1 screen would be enough.

No debris in the bath faucet, but some "linty" looking stuff caught by the screen in the kitchen.

Before i retired I worked for Price Pfister. It sound as if you have some debris in the cartridge. If so the faucet will have to be taken apart and a new cartridge installed.
