Why just a Dribble Water coming from Kitchen Faucet

Only get a dribble of Water from Kitchen faucet. Worked fine before our last RV move a few days ago - Full timers.

Connected to city water - 50 lbs pressure - only get a dribble, all other faucets work fine - outside, bathroom, shower.

Connected to 12v Water pump - same as above. Water Pump works even for dribble from Kitchen faucet.

Cleaned and Soaked kitchen faucet screen in Vinegar - no change. Already inspected Water Pump Inlet Screen - no change.

Any clues what problem may be - line clog of some sort but where and how? Any easy fix? Of course this has been a process of elimination just to get to this step....

unscrew the filter the end of the faucet. you likely have a bit of debris in it. not uncommon.

Could be gunk plugging the valves inside the faucet. Try unscrewing the incoming water lines (with pump OFF of course), then pump water into a bucket to test the flow rate.

If this affects both hot and cold and just one faucet then it's gotta be something inside the faucet itself. If it's a "single handle" faucet it could be that thing that failed.

Is your kitchen faucet one of the retractable hose ones? If so you may have pinched the hose underneath the cabinet. I’ve had that happen before on our couch.

This^^.


Not uncommon for the valve inside the faucet to displace an O-ring or have some other fault. This would be my first place to look after taking the steps you've already taken.

If you have shutoff valves under your sink, disconnect the supply line and see if you have water pressure at the valve, if not then the supply lines before the valve are the issue, if yes then the supply line post valve or faucet are the issue. We had to replace the supply line after the shut off valve due to calcium buildup restricting the water flow.

If its a pull-out head on the faucet ours had not only a screen filter at the very end but also under the sink where there was another inline filter. Similar to this. Plugged up with debris from my water heater. Now I do a much more thorough job of flushing it out several times a season.
