low water pressure at kitchen sink

I went camping and had water regulator screwed on at water spigot, the water pressure at the kitchen sink was low... water was slow trickled out... I removed the regulator but still same thing.

Anyone think what problem I have with this. The bathroom sink water pressure is good. shower is good. toilet water is good. but not the kitchen sink.... why?

Aerator clogged? Cold and hot or just one?

Does your kitchen sink have a separate sprayer? How is the water pressure/flow from it?

Another vote for clogged aerator first. However, I had a trickling kitchen faucet before my last trip. My faucet is the kind that pulls out to be a sprayer. I took the sprayer head off and found the aerator fairly clean. Water still trickled with the head off. I used an air hose to blow a little air back in the water line where the head screws on. The water flow was back to normal after that. I guess the faucet cartridge was clogged and the air cleared it.

Aerator and/or the little filter on your water pump.

In my trailer, the flexible supply line to the faucet has a shut off valve. Check that as it may have been moved.

That happened to us a few weeks ago, and it turned out to be the in-line under-sink filter needed replacing. Joe

Most slow flow water problems are caused by clogged aerators, city water inlet screens. or water line debris. I always use a blue inline filter on the city water filter and when filling the fresh water tank. The factory water pressure regulator on the city water inlet is reliable regulator and does not need a separate regulator on the city spigot. That could contribute to lower flow.

I have a kinked hot water line in mine. They (airstream ) uses a bend support https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=l&ai=...AUQwg96BAgBEB8 , and the Pex has linked in this support. I still have some flow but it’s restricted. It’s in a area below, and behind the refrigerator area I have bought a shark bite 90 degree fitting. If it collapses to a more restricted form I will have to fix it. So this could be another possibility.

Our kitchen pulls out via a hose as many do. Their is a screen in the head as usual, but also a screen where the head connects to the hose. That second screen was plugged on mine.
Don’t know if yours is the same, but could be.
