No water at kitchen sink, help!!

I am getting my trailer ready for my first after winter trip. I am dewinterizing it, aka flushing the anti-freeze out. I am not getting any water to the kitchen sink. Everything else works fine, any ideas?? I'm going crazy trying to figure it out.
Hope you can help asap! Thanks!!

RD

Unscrew the head from the hose and check inside of the head at the restrictor to see if stuff is in there. While the head is off, turn on the faucet to see if water comes out of the hose.

This can be caused by opening the low point drains with water in the WH. It will allow the water and crud in the WH to enter the cold water line. Some of it will flow out with the drained water, however some of it will stay in the lines. Net time you charge the system, it will be pushed through and end up clogging a spigot screen. Always drain WH rpior to opening LP drains.

Maybe it's just me, but I always remove the aerators BEFORE flushing out the antifreeze, then place a bucket under the tap.

Removing the aerator means I don't have to clean it afterwards.

Filling into a bucket means I can pitch it outside, don't have to flow it into the tank.

When I de-winterize or flush the system I always start by removing outside shower head,,,and first flushing thru that line !!!
It helps keeping crud from plugging the aerators, Toilet, or shower head !!!
