Bathroom sink, plumbing issue?

On de-winterizing yesterday I discovered I have very little water flow to the bathroom sink, hot or cold.

Kitchen sink is fine, hot and cold, so is the shower and the toilet (cold only). In fact the pressure to all is robust with good volume.

I don't get it. Worked fine last winter and I (thought) I winterized completely. No water coming out or leaking anywhere I can see inside or outside of the coach.

Very confusing. I'm about to crawl under the coach and see if I can find if the lines to the sink to check for an obstruction or to find out if they are crushed.

The water heater is no longer bypassed and I get hot water (though I have not actually turned the water heater "on" as yet) through all the warm water faucet's, except the bathroom sink, (it is both the sink hot and cold that are not flowing).

My shower, toilet and bathroom sink are all in one room and I assumed running off the same water line feed but I don't know that for sure.

Could it be an air bubble somewhere and if so how would I get it out?

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Roll

More than likely, just need to clean the faucet aerator /screen filter is all.

Well, as simple as that sounds I had not considered it. Thank you, will do and if that solves the problem I'll owe you both a "beer" which brings my "beers owed" up to a double digits.

Thanks,

Roll

Ditto, and throw the restrictor in the round file.

Yup, that's what it was. Cleaned out the aerator/ screen and the faucet works fine.

Thanks all.

Yep, them screens are a pain. I buy a bunch from my local (real) hardware store and replace them each time I dewinterize. They crud up probably by lime or mineral buildup and probably some corrosion. You could also soak them in lime-away or such.
