No water flowing from the washbasin taps ??

Hi all,

Yesterday, I installed a washing machine in the RV tunnel. To do that, I had to T into cold water line and released all the water pressure from the plumbing. Once done, I restored the water.
Now, the hand basin taps will not pass water, either hot or cold. All other outlets are fine - sink, shower, toilet all fine. It seems that the loss of pressure has caused some valve/blockage to occur in the tap set (2013 Rockwood, the tap has two levers, hot and cold, that rotate inwards towards each other).
Any tricks with these tap sets ?

Check the faucet aerator for blockage.

You were both right.
De-pressurising the system had released a large lump of crud which had worked its way into the airator. I didn't know it, but the airator has a flat valve like washer which forces the water to spread - the crud was forcing this washer hard into outlet pipe preventing any water flow.

Thanks for your help.
