Waterpump on/off cycling

Newb here,
I just dewinterized , we picked up the New Cruiser Stryker 2613 in December.

One issue with the water heater which Ill address in another post.
Also, all water faucets work good on Fresh water tank/pump supply except the bathroom sink.

With the shower and kitchen sink , the flow is good and the pump comes on and stays on until you shut the faucet. With teh Bathroom sink, the flow is lower ( which is fine/ the sink is much smaller ) but the water pump turns on and off every three seconds.

Thoughts?

Most likely the aerator on bathroom sink has debris in it. Remove and clean.

sounds normal to me. more flow the pump runs constant. Less flow less need the pump catches up so turns off then turns on cycling on and off as needed.

This probably is the case if what you are experiencing is an extremely low flow at your lavatory faucet. Lavatory faucets generally flow less than a kitchen faucet — because that’s what they’re supposed to do. In theory, and by design, the larger the vessel the faucet is supplying water to, the higher the flow of the faucet should be.

If the unit was winterized by draining the system including the WH via the low point drains it is very likely crud from the WH got into the lines and once charged back up moved to the bathroom sink. Clean the screen as mentioned. It is best to insure the WH is empty or bypassed prior to opening low point drains to prevent this.

Clean the screen on the bathroom spigot and see if you get good water flow...

If you do and that resolves your issue great, if not and your pump continues to cycle on and off you have a issue somewhere...

These are on demand pumps so once you shut of the water, the pump pressurizes the system, senses the pressure and should kick off... If it's not kicking off you may have a leak somewhere or your pressure switch is not working correctly...

Hope this helps...

If you can, look for kink in lines going to the sink. Does hot run faster than cold ? does cold run faster than hot ? both run the same ? Low on both ? do like others have said and check screen at faucet.

Update

Thanks for all the replies !
Just got back from maiden voyage / test run. One night at electric only campground about 1.5 hours away. All went well.
I have not check the bathroom sink faucet screen yet , about to go do that now, but what I did notice is while doing dishes in the kitchen and trying to conserve water I would dial down the flow ( kitchen sink has great flow ) same in the shower , and the water pump starts doing the same on/off cycling about every 3-5 seconds. Could it be that this is just how the pump operates at lower flows? Or is there a pressure switch adjustment?
