Any one had problems with Water Pressure?

I own a Jayco 2013 Pinnacle 35lkts and I have very low water pressure coming out of the kitchen faucet. We use water straight from the city fixture and in the washroom the pressure is fine. I've looked under the sink to see if there is a valve that may have been turned to lower the pressure but there isn't one. I also see small copper pipes leading into the faucets and think that maybe this is the cause and I may have to switch them out. Anyone else having this problem or has fixed this problem?
Thanks in advance.

Open up the fixture wherever you can. I've heard of plenty of people finding all manner of sealant pieces and other construction debris in the screens of their fixtures. I believe it's garbage that lands in the bottom of the tank and gets picked up into the faucets...

I think I'm having the same problem with my kitchen faucet, but I haven't had a chance to disassemble yet.

I had the same problem and found "stuff" in the faucet screen. I also replaced the faucet head with one that swivels from Camping World. It works much better than the one that came standard on the fixture.

If the pressure is good in one faucet and bad in another I would agree that something is blocking the bad faucet. It could be construction debris or I have seen some faucets clog quicker with sediment because the screen on the aerator has smaller diameter holes.

If you don't believe us, then have at look at this thread I started a few months ago to see what I found in my faucet. Pictures are priceless. lol

^^ That's the discussion I was talking about!

And my neighbor found stuff in his lines too. I'm just convinced there's something in mine, but it'll be a while before I pull her back out of storage, so I will have to wait.

Wont know till you try and that is usually the problem, not much room in the screen so it doesn't take much to plug it. after that look for a possible kinked line gong to the kitchen.
