2350KRK Rear water sprayer valve?

I have a 2022 Alta 2350KRK. I just dewinterized it after the shop winterized it for me last year.
The rear outside sprayer (water hose connection) is just trickling water instead of spraying.

Is there a valve to turn it on/off?

I pulled out some drawers to look at the water line and from what I can see there is no valve. It goes from the water heater (cold line), to the kitchen sink (works great) to the outside connection. I can't see the entire length of hose due to its location, so I suppose there could be a valve.

Anyone know?

I pulled it apart and found the internal plastic pieces were jumbled. I put them back in place, reassembled and it works fine now.

I feel like I have to do that once per camping season, especially if we end up camping somewhere that sand could get in it. Usually we'll end up with one of two things - either the hose won't lock into it, or it'll get some dirt stuck in it and trickle water.

Typically those sprayer ports with just the hose attachment (no faucet valves) have no valve to turn them on/off unless you install one or someone else did. Having no valve also causes it to couple/disconnect with difficulty when under pressure and cause the internal o-rings/check valve to get "jumbled." (your words).

The factory does not use shut-off valves to individual plumbing runs in their plumbing scheme because it would cost them money. (the exception is the water heater) The entire plumbing system is either fully charged or completely off. Many of us have added shut-offs to various runs of the plumbing so it can be isolated if there is a leak.
