Yep This has happened to me a few times with the inlet check Valve behind the screen sticking so I just grab it with needle nose pliers and pull it back and forth to loosen it up watch out though when you unstick the valve it will spray ya in the face with a shot of water

Check the city water connection inlet screen,,,,and the city water inlet check valve

Either one or both will cause little to no flow from hose to RV

Could also be a bad pressure regulator if you are using one.

So, we're less concerned with the water issue right now because we can just use the pump in the time being. But the clogged sink is a completely bigger problem. Jeremy took a snake put it down the drain under the sink. He said he felt something give and water flowed. I got home this morning and started cleaning. I washed the dishes, let the sink drain and it was stopped up again. I don't understand what is going on. I'm ready to pull my hair out with this **** 5th wheel. If it weren't for us having so many other financial obligations right now I'd trade this pos in. Water issues, clogged sink, I've had enough. We live in here full time because we travel for his work, so we don't have another choice right now. [emoticon]

Have you checked the trap under the sink? That would be the first thing I would check. Get a bucket first.

Tips for kitchen sinks. Scrape plates, pans and utensils into the garbage before washing. Use a spatula or scraper to get them as clean as you can. Use a basin to wash in instead of the sink. Dump the basin into the black tank and only rinse the washed dishes in the sink. Repeat as necessary. PITA, but this helps by 1) keeping stuff out of the smaller kitchen plumbing and the grey tank that can gunk up the works and 2) puts more water in the black tank, which is always a good idea.

Maybe something like this could help.It sounds like maybe something is may have gotten put down the drain that shouldn't be there. Something that moves when pushed by the snake but that didn't actually clear out.
