No water pressure at bathroom sink!!!!

Hello to all; Getting ready to leave for Ca. next week. Of course, the 2001 36T Discovery was our shop, getting a new ex. manifold, 5050 muffler, oil, air, filters,grease job, etc....every one knows this drill!! TRYING to fix stuff at home, not on the road! Then, flushing the water system, everything works as should... but, the bathroom sink. I just get a small amount of water, (hot or cold) finally the pump kicks in, and no pressure. I've taken the line off at the sink, no change. Any ideas? The pump works good and will hold over nite. Thanks Bobmn

Did you check the little screen on the end of the faucet?

no water or pressure

Firedoc; Thanks for the tip. Yes, I did ck that. I even unhooked the lines to the sink faucet. Still a small stream of water...really small and I can count to 12/13 and the pump will kick on, just for 2/3 sec. But, no pressure! Every other faucet and the toilet works as it should! I guess we will be hauling water from the kitchen!! Thanks again Bobmn

bet you've got a kink in one of your hoses. Start checking your hose from the pump. Good luck.

My best guess would be that some calcium deposit from the water heater got hung up someplace in the line to the bathroom tap. This assumes that the pressure was OK the last time the RV was used and the pressure is bad coming out of the tubing/pipe going into the bathroom faucet.

You could drain the water out of the lines and use a funnel or something like that to pour vinegar into the pipes at the bathroom faucet. Let it sit for 5-6 hours to dissolve any deposits and then try it again.

I had a similiar problem with the kitchen faucet. The vinegar cleared it right up after sitting unused for 6 hours.

How is the pressure when on city water.

Keep in mind that there is a filter on the water pump also. Usually a round plastic device.

Wizard and edj; Thanks for the tips! I did clean the filter on the pump. I will try the city water hookup. Never thought of that! I'll also try the vineger trick, can't hurt! Bobmn

Hello to all; Fixed the problem! Thanks to all for all the tips. Did the vinegar thing, and after I blew back with compressed air (very low pressure) with the faucets open. Then, I removed the faucets strainers. They were full of calcium and other junk!! Also, used a 1/16 drill bit to drill out the holes in the plastic disk,in the bathroom faucet. LOTS of water now. Thanks again. Bobmn

Thanks for the posts

I had the same problem and did a search. Thanks for all the posts. I had no water from the bathroom sink (hot or cold) other than a trickle and after I read these posts, unscrewed the screen on the faucet to find all kinds of deposits gumming it up. It's clear now and works great! Thanks again!
