Question Kitchen Faucet - No Water

2007 National Dolphin 5342 - I have decent water pressure to the bathroom sink and shower, and the outside shower hose, but just a trickle to the kitchen faucet. I tried replacing the faucet as the original one was in pretty sad shape, but still have almost no water coming out. Just a trickle. Any thoughts?

If the kitchen is in a slide check for a kinked hose.
Both hot and cold are low pressure, or just cold or just hot?

Is the flow equal for both hot and cold?

You might undue the connections from the facet supply lines and the RV's pipe and see if you have good flow there. If so then its the facet. If not, then issues farther backup the system.

Are there any cut-off valves to the kitchen sink?

Is water pressure good every where else?

Maybe a badly pinched PEX line?

Yes, both Hot and Cold, and not in a slide-out.

Our MH has a filter in line in the cold water supply under the sink. If you have one it might need replacing.

I did look for a cut-off valve under the sink, and didn't find one. There is one for the filtered faucet, but didn't find one for the main faucet.

There appears to be good flow to the filter, but the filter is cracked so I have that cutoff valve closed. When I do open it back up I get good flow out of the cracks! But as far as I can tell the filter split off should not affect the faucet. The filter water goes to a different outlet to the side of the main faucet.

I just had a similar issue I attributed to the winterizing/draining of the low water point on my TT.

Between trips this winter, I drained the water at the low point, and when we got out again I had only a trickle out of the faucet in the kitchen. Outside kitchen comes off of it right underneath the sink and good pressure outside on both lines.

I let it run a bit outside and in and it picked up eventually. I think it was a bit of a vapor lock going on and it had to work it's way out of the system.

I just drained it again on Sunday as I replaced my water pump and added in a check valve on it, so I guess I'll see what happens this Wednesday when we're out again for Cinco de Mayo weekend..

How many pipe connections are there under the sink? If only two then I think that cutoff does more than you think. From what you describe it would need three pipe connections. Cold hot and another cold

Ok, problem solved. New faucet was broken. Went to HD, bought a new Moen faucet, installed it, and wallah...water! Yeah!
