Kitchen Faucet cuts off

We have mysterious water problem in 2013 Salem Hemisphere. Flow to both hot and cold water in kitchen sink cuts off while flow in bathroom remains normal. I removed the faucet screen head and still no flow. One interesting event: I opened one of the bathroom valves with the kitchen turned on (no flow) and normal flow in kitchen returned. I'm suspecting something with the check valves between trailer and city water supplies.

There could be a large pellet of calcium or anode material floating in the lines.

Drain your system completely and refill.

See it the pellet gets removed through the low point drain.

Problem Solved! When flow stopped I loosened supply nut and found pressure. I disassembled faucet and removed spring loaded seal (backflow preventer I believe) and problem has not recurred. Park supply has backflow protection and we will not be using on-board water tank. I also replaced inexpensive 40 psi regulator with Watts N55B adjustable and flow is very much improved.
