Water pressure gremlins

Hello,
Just the facts;

2015 FR 3 30 DS, 18,000 miles, original owner.

Water pressure in bathroom sink, hot AND cold and toilet very low, was normal.

Shower is fine.

Kitchen sink is fine

No difference with shore water or pump

Without shore water or the pump on, water still comes out, very little but still

Nothing new has been done, filters, screens or any work of any kind

Noticed water dripping/leaking from the passenger side wheelwell while doing predrive inspection

Any and all help will be appreciated

Remove aerator, most likely has trash in it.

Most likely debris from when they cut holes in the water tank. We all go through a couple of times of cleaning the aerator screens before it stops clogging.

And with regards to the water dripping in the wheel well, double check your water heater anode rod isn't leaking. I think mine was until I put some teflon tape on the threads. I need to double check again now we're done de-winterizing.

In reference to the leaking water around the wheel well on passenger side, you might also want to make sure it's not the overflow tube from your fresh water tank. Early models had a siphon problem when tank is close to full. If that is the problem, an easy fix is to put a loop in the clear line or, like I did, add a "p" trap using pvc fittings. There are other posts on this subject.
