Intermittent supply from filtered faucet

I have a Hydro Life inline water filter mounted under my kitchen sink that feeds the drinking water faucet and, I think, the icemaker. When I purchased the motorhome (2002 Fleetwood Discovery) the drinking water faucet did not work. I assumed a clogged filter and ordered a new one. After installing the new one with the quick-disconnect fittings, the water still did not flow. There is plenty of flow and pressure to the filet inlet. I tried various trouble-shooting configurations and finally got it to flow to the filter outlet (I honestly don't know what I did - it just squirted out the filter suddenly), the faucet started working and all was fine. Then, a month or so later, no flow to the faucet again.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on here? Are the quick-disconnects finicky or prone to failure?

It sounds like you have an obstruction in your water pipe or perhaps your new filter is now clogged with whatever is floating in your water lines.

I would again remove the filter and see if you have water flow at its inlet. If yes, I would work my way towards the faucet. If no, I would work my way back to the source.

Sometimes the manufacturer leaves little problems behind for us to find. I had a travel trailer once that developed a poor flowing shower. It was caused by a piece of string.

There is definitely water flow at the inlet of the filter. I was surprised how much on just the pump, haha.
