Cold side of kitchen sink has low pressure

All pressure is good for hot and cold at bathroom sink, shower, toilet and hot side of kitchen. Any ideas?

Sounds like a plugged port in the cartridge. Have you taken the cartridge out and inspected the ports in it and the faucet body?

If both hot and cold are low pressure check the aerator.

The OP indicated in his post that it was the cold side only of the kitchen faucet.

I agree with Bama... pull the cartridge on the cold side of the faucet and check for debris.
If it has never worked correctly, check for a kinked/pinched line.

Thanx for the speedy reply. I was ignorant of the term but that will help me troubleshoot a problem I have.

Faucets used to have washers on the stem to open and close the water path. Now they have 'cartridges' that are a unit with springs and seals to open and close the water path. You remove the stem nut to access them kind of like you did the old ones.

Not sure what type of kitchen faucet comes in a ROO,,, but in most cases a Made in Chine RV faucet belongs in the trash !!! If it were me I would replace it with a Brand Name Faucet !!! one that is not 99% Plastic !!!
