Kitchen sink low water pressure

Hello all! This is my first post. We just took our first short camping trip with our 2013 Redhawk 26 xs.
Everything works like it should. Only prob, a little one, is that our kitchen sink water pressure is very low. Is this common? We also have problem with shower curtain not closing all the way.
Getting ready to wash and wax, treat rubber roof, then cover it. Any issues with using a cover on these guys? We live in southern Cal.

Hi there!
Our kitchen sink had to be replaced under warranty because there was a small leaked at the head caused by a crack. When I dewinterized this year, I could not get pressure from this one tap. All the other taps worked fine. I unscrewed the end and found a little bit of residue or plastic on the plastic disc. I rinsed it off *good time to check if you have water pressure) and put it back. Problem solved.

Car-los, are you having the low water pressure while using city water or while using the on board water pump?? If you are using a city water connection, it may be from your regulator restricting flow. I had the same problem with my last camper and ended up just not using the regulator. Didn't give me the same water pressure and flow as I have in my house, but it was noticeably better. Wish I could help on the shower curtain issues as well as any insight on the cover. I don't use a cover.

I had the same problem with my kitchen sink faucet. After removing the aerator I found a small piece of plastic preventing the water from coming out properly. It looked like some plastic may have fallen in the lines during installation.

Thanks!

Well, it was a tiny piece of plastic in the tiny hole under the aerator, duh.
Thankyou for helping out this newbie. The Redhawk sure handles nicely all full up.
