Another Water Pressure Question

The galley faucet is a MOen with the built in filter (2001 Airstream 30' SO). The water pressure is low, we have replaced the filter, cartridge and airerator. The presurre in the bath is good. We would rather not replace the faucet as it mathes the counter top. Ideas?

I had the same thing on ours....I unscrewed the wand from the hose and there is a screen that was blocked. With the wand off, I just ran the water thru the hose and it cleared any debris that was causing the blockage...

That may be the easiest thing to do to determine where the problem is.

Take the faucet off and replace it with another faucet. If the pressure comes back then you know the faucet is the problem. If the pressure doesn't come back then the faucet is not the problem.

Moen Kitchen Tap

I had trouble again with my kitchen taps, after flushing the RV anitfreeze on spring pretrip. I had the same problem last year.
Removed the spray wand and had lots of pressure at the hose. Cleaned the screen and filter and reinstalled and no more problem.
I suspect the RV antifreeze may gell and dry out on the filter at the base of the wand and increases the restriction. Still a lot easier than replacing frozen plumbing.
There are good schematics on the Moen site for all their models with parts breakdown and ordering info.
