Low pressure on right hand side of sink

Our CC 38FBD has dual sinks in the bathroom. The sink on the right has less water pressure than the one on the left. Both hot and cold are less. Any ideas?

My thinking.... Pressure comes from the pump or from the city water pressure if hooked up. The entire system is under the same pressure. You likely have an obstruction that is reducing flow at that faucet. Just to confirm, is flow good on kitchen, shower.... ?

Between faucet and where that line ties in to the adjacent sink line.

Our 34RL2 has dual sinks and pressure is equal...so it would sound like there is some kind of obstruction as previously suggested.

I'd take off the aerator on the low pressure one and see if it's plugged with crap.

'Someone' is going to jump in here soon and tell you it is low FLOW and not low PRESSURE.
Just wanted to be 'first'

Yes, you are correct. The water pressure is the same throughout the trailer. There are no hidden regulators.

The problem is LOW FLOW, not low pressure. The most common reason is crud in the aerator. Unscrew it from the faucet and rinse it off. Hold it inverted to the tap and run water through it backward.
