2604ws Low Kitchen Water Pressure

My wife and I bought our 2604ws, which is our first RV, just after Christmas and have been out 10 nights thus far....it is an awesome camper and we are having a blast! The only issue we have had thus far is that the water pressure in the kitchen sink is low. The shower, lavatory, and toilet have good pressure but the kitchen is low on both hot and cold. I don't recall it being low the first time out.

Any ideas on what I can check? We are still under warranty and will take in for repair if I can't fix it, but I'd rather give it a go first.

The attached picture is of our favorite campsite overlooking a beautiful Louisiana lake.

Thanks for any help!

I believe that the end of the faucet may screw off and then you'll see a screen/filter kind of thing. See if you can clear that of any sediment.

Agree. Since it is a new trailer, some "construction debris" could have found its way to the galley.

That was it - thanks for the direction! The screen had shavings of pex and the aerator had a 1/8" inlet that was almost totally blocked by a piece of pex. (my wife says I've embarrassed the family by posing a question with such an obvious solution...ha).

The only "embarrassing" question is the one that doesn't get asked and then you don't get an answer!

Heck! How do you think I knew the answer? Other people have asked the same. Welcome!

Throw the washer with the 1/8" hole in it away as well as the ones in the shower and lavatory. They are for cutting down water usage mandated by the govt. Don't know if anyone leaves them installed.
