Help: Shower and Toilet work; No water pressure in sinks

I hooked up to water at an RV Park. All looks normal except neither sink (kitchen or bath) have water pressure. The shower and toilet work fine.

What's up?

Have you used the trailer since you de-winterized it? You may have a couple of valves in the wrong position.

Thanks. Yes, we used it once since de-winterizing. It worked fine then. I must say, I'm stumped. The valves under the bed control pressure to the sinks as well as the shower and toilet, so all should be working.

The solution was to sort of prime the hoses with some water in the holding tank by turning on the water pump. I also had to jiggle the kitchenette sink faucet back and forth to free up the water flow. Strange. This is s 2002 Bambi with newer fixtures.

Just happened to me and of course I was ready to take the entire plumbing system apart when I decided to call my local Airstream dealer... He said check the strainer in the faucets... I was amazed but both the kitchen and bathroom sinks where clogged solid. I had just come back from a 6 week trip and all was working fine... I must have just picked up some sand etc.
