Extremely low water pressure

We have a 2014 360 DS with the bowl sinks and the single lever tall faucet.
Water pressure is great everywhere in the RV except in the sink in the front bathroom.

Has anyone had a previous problem before I start to tear this one apart

Thanks in advance

It is usually crud in the aerator screen. I would look there first.

Check and clean aerator if it has one.

As mentioned, the aerator or, I've seen some with construction debris in the piping where the supply lines screwed on and also in the actual spigot valve/lever itself.

Removing the supply lines and blowing back through the faucet with compressed air has helped a few that were difficult to get apart.

Couldn't see that the cap actually came off. Aerator clogged. After three long days in snow rain and wind we have landed in Florida.

Wife happy her sink is working


Thanks!

Thanks for coming back and letting us know the outcome!

And welcome to FL!
We had 38º last night here in central FL but still better than the Nor'easter back home! The lines at the propane filling stations are long! LOL!

Glad it is fixed.

Incidentally, there was never anything wrong with your water pressure at the sink. The pressure was the same there as everywhere else in the RV. The problem was "low flow", not low pressure.
