We have a Prime Time Spartan. The water at the kitchen sink is a dribble, and the water flow at the bathroom sink is only slightly better. However, the shower has great pressure. I can't figure out why this is so or how to correct it. We use a regulator because the manager said that the pressure is high. Any ideas?

Have you checked and cleaned the aerator screen at the end of the faucet? You might also want to check to see if you have any type of screens on the water connection to your coach.

x2 take the end of the faucet off and clean or throw away.

Agreed. I have to clean my faucet screens every couple of years. I try to remember to do it every year when I de-winterize just to prevent the problem in the first place.

Agree, if only at one faucet, then clean your screen

Is water pressure low on both hot and cold?

Are there water filters on the lines feeding these 2 sinks? Our galley sink has one, but I don't think the bath one does. Aerators (clean/replace) are a good place to start.

Check the strainer on the water pump if you are using water from the fresh water tank.

I wish I knew the answer or how to correct this problem. I have the same problem and yes I have cleaned the screens and have replaced the screens and cleaned out the washers in the valves. nothing has worked. the answers you got above are just the tip of the iceberg, just the start of going mad trying to figure this out. I'm beginning to think it is an engineering design

Thanks for the input everyone. I shall attempt to remove the kitchen faucet top and see if the screen is the problem. It affects both the hot and cold water. Not using our tank but I should check to see if it does this when on the pump. Should I disconnect from city water first? We didn't have this problem in the prior park, so I don't think it's a design defect. Unfortunately the bathroom sink is not the kind you can unscrew so I don't know how that will be fixed.
