On trip and kitchen sink must have a gremlin in it

We are on a trip to Tetons/Yellowstone and my DW is convinced we have a gremlin in out kitchen sink. 4 parks so far with hookups. We are using a 50psi regulator. First park, full pressure bath and shower (actually every park), but sink has a trickle. I checked the aerator, removed the head completely, still a trickle. Checked for kinks, found nothing. Convinced we needed a new faucet. Park 2, a little more pressure, but still not good. Park 3, no pressure, dripping. I was going to replace the faucet at park 4. But then, park 4, about 75% flow day 1. Day 2, full pressure. Told the DW I fixed it, but really never touched it. (She knew better that's why the gremlin comment). What am I missing?

I had to take hot and cold valves out and clean. Had a plastic shaving hung in one and faucet wouldn't turn off. This showed up after two years of ownership.

Might try looking there.

Valves? The sink is one unit, you mean valves by the hot water heater?

There is small insert valve(s) inside the faucet itself that meter the water from the handle.

On the handle, you will see your little red & blue hot/cold indicator. Pop that little plastic disc out & you will find a set screw to remove the handle. Then you will find the rest of the valve and nut that holds it all together.

In post #2 in the reference to "valves" the poster meant "cartridges". Both single handle and the two handle faucets nowadays have cartridges in them. In post #7 rracer5 is correct on how to remove that particular cartridge. In post #2 the statement "Had a plastic shaving hung in one and faucet would not turn off" is all too common. Don't forget the sink in the bath and the bath/shower faucet also.

They have you headed in right direction, cartridge is the correct term.

Have you checked out yet?

Check for junk where pullout faucet hose connects to main assembly.
