No water to toilet or bathroom sink
We have water to the shower and kitchen sink, but none in the toilet or bathroom sink. That's using either the tank water or city water. We tried both and still no water in the toilet or bathroom sink.

There are shut-off valves to the sink and toilet. Perhaps they were closed for winterizing.....

We are the original owners. It's never been wintered. Also, we have not turned the valves under the sink or toilet. When we turn on the kitchen sink water sputters then runs. The shower works normally. Haven't seen any kinked hoses or any other problems by looking under the sinks. Thanks

That's very odd. The hot and cold water is independent once it leaves the water heater area, but there is a common cold over to the side of the trailer that seems to be not working and it also feeds the water heater. Can you confirm you have both hot and cold to the shower and galley?

Just spit-balling here, but my Avenue class B lost water flow to the toilet and the cold bath faucet. Had some mineral gunk in the cold water side. The washers had screens at the connections and were almost completely blocked. But it didn't happen overnight, but fairly quickly. And always had hot water at the bath faucet.

Had the same problem with the toilet in my 75’ I had to replace the valve, it was mineral deposits. You could soak the parts in vinegar. If that is the case.

I'd like to thank everyone that replied with helpful advice.
The problem with the sink was a clogged filter which I cleaned. Problem solved! The toilet - I removed the toilet and cleaned all the calcium that was blocking the water flow. Re-installed the toilet and it works great! Thank so much:-))
