Poor water pressure

Have a 32 rcts sabre. We have good water pressure in Bathroom sink , Toilet is good as well. Shower not that good, but the kitchen is poor. Do you know if that unit has water restrictors on the input lines on the kitchen tap. Un did the extension that pulls out and flushed it out no better?? Also doesnt matter if we are on pump or city lines same problem

I doubt if you have a supply line valve under the kitchen sink but maybe you do in your model. But I would first check the aerator (filter screen) for that faucet. Mine clogs up with minerals and the other day I had some sand in it.

I drain my hw heater after every use and seems to eliminate sediment issues.
also try a finer micron water filter to help trap sediments for awhile.
a lot of people flush there hw tank but I have not seen a reason that would make me believe I needed to do that.

There are restrictor plates in every faucet. They are about the size of a dime with a hole in it about the size of a wooden match. You will have to pry it out and throw it away.

Is it both hot and cold water that has low pressure? If only hot water the hotwater tank bypass valve may not be closed completely.

Well, its never simple is it?

Another simple fix: While looking under the sink, have you inspected the tubing leading to the faucet? If not, then ensure it does not have a kink in it or had been crushed during assembly. If it is kinked or crushed, it should be replaced.

If that is not it, and this is a new trailer and you never used the faucet, then possibly the faucet is defective.

just because its new and you have never had water in it
doesn't mean the factory didn't run water through it. They more than likely filled hw heater to check operation.
Also if you had a good dealer he should have also ran water through it.
During pdi then should have ran water in the system to show you operations such as
water pump,hw heater,toilet,faucets, and showers.
when they install all the plumbing who knows what saw dust
And plastic particles are in those lines only to be flushed to your strainers.
did they show you were your water filter was?
Take a look at the bottom of the filter canister and see if there's not allready sediments there.
Good luck! Happy camping

We've never had what I call "good" water pressure in our kitchen. I'm hoping Oxygenics someday comes up with a kitchen faucet. I love their shower head. We took the screen off the faucet; nothing in there. Barthroom is "okay" too. Nothing fantastic. I've just learned to live with it.
