Water flow

Ive noticed that in my kitchen sink the hot water flow faster than the cold water yet in the bathroom sink they both flow the same. Any hints?

Logic would dictate a restriction in the cold line in the kitchen. My first thought would be the cold valve on the faucet having the restriction. Another possibility is, if you have an under sink water filter for the kitchen. These are common and usually feeds the cold water tap and the ice maker line running to the frig.

Yep, my money says it's a clogged water filter under the sink.

If this is not a necessarily high end unit, I doubt there's a water filter. Not everyone gets the fancy stuff.
But like they said, something is clogged. I would think the water valve under the handle, if there's not a filter.

Funny you are right. There is a filter under the sink. A long thin one. Never thought that would be the reason but this is my 1st RV so thank you all. Now to change it do I just disconnect the main line to my unit and open the faucet to let the water drain then unscrew both ends of the filter to remove ane replace it?

If it is direct flow from the line then turn the water off and disconnect and replace. It should change like any household filter.

Either remove the City Water line or just shut off pressure. If running on pump/tank, just shut the pump off. You'll then have to relieve any pressure in the line with the faucet. When you take the filter apart, you will have some water come out, keep a towel handy.

The water heater will catch a lot of sediment and other trash that will get through the cold water line. The cuts in a typical cartridge water faucet are small and easily plugged. Shut off the water supply and disassemble the faucet and check the cartridge for trash.

Ken brings up a good point. Be sure to do maintenance on your water heater by flushing it good periodically to get the sediment out.
