Scratching my head

We did our shakedown run last weekend, and went relatively smooth.

I did however have a problem with my bathroom sink. There was no pressure in the water was just trickling out. The water pressure at the campsite was fine in my kitchen sink was fine.

There are no shut off valves to the back bathroom sink but yet the water was not flowing out of the faucet.

For the life of me I cannot figure this out!

It sounds very logical that there's something blocking the pressure but I don't think so. any ideas?

On many faucets there is a small screen at the end of the spigot. Try unscrewing it and then check to see if there is debris blocking the screen. That is the usual cure on my unit.

If you find this is happening on repeated trips you may need to flush and clean your hot water heater. I was having the same problem with all the sinks in my trailer. Once I cleaned the water heater out the problem went away.

Question

If Alden has hot water why does he need a heater?
