Restricted water flow

Hello air forum. Being new to the forum I step off into the my introduction. I am second owner of an airstream. My first was an '03 25SS, and my current unit is a '12 27 Classic. This is my first spring start and as I began the dewinterizing process - bleaching the water system and flushing I encountered a problem. The toilet, shower and outside shower all work fine, however the bath sink will not flow, and the kitchen sink flows very. Slow at 1/4 flow. I at first ran the system through the pump to sterilize everything but when that failed I pulled the manual and found no plumbing schematic. I tripped the pop off valve and the hot water heater is full. I connected city water but no change. I opened the bypass valve to curb water, no change.

The faucets are not sputtering, just not flowing or slow? If anyone has experience in this or an recommendation on how to proceed I would greatly appreciate the assistance.

I am new to the forum, so I greatly look forward to the fellowship. I am soon to switch from a vacation/weekend camper to doing some travel. Thanks

Welcome!
Try checking the faucet strainers for debris. We had a similar problem this spring, the strainers were plugged solid. Once we removed them, the water flowed without problem.

i second that. I have to take mine off every few trips...probably have a decent amount of sediment in the lines. Once the strainer is cleaned, works like magic.

A fellow Virginian will "third" that suggestion to clear faucet heads; with some small take down and put back work you should be fine.

Thanks much, it worked. Both were filled with crud. The water flows gears now.
