In reference to the 16 year olds at the Jayco factory, the problem is basic QA lacing and management. I found numerous obvious poor assembly problems with my Jayco. For whatever reason, its seems that speed is the only requirement to work at Jayco. And, it doesn't matter if it's an entry level model or top of the line. In reality, maybe a 16 year old may do a better job.

I think Kuzbro hit it. Not only do the bean counters track every piece of material, but also labor. Everyone on a production line is required to keep up, regardless. The worker who regularly halts the line to fix a minor issue just isn't going to last long. Also, they are required to produce X number of units a day, so it's easier to let the dealers correct warranty issues and make production quotas. That is why all of my repairs and mods except one have been done by me. I put out a better quality job that the dealers and certainly better than the factory. Thats just a way of life in a production facility.

You're right the 16 yr. old remark was a joke, just simply implying that some little things have slipped through the cracks but they are usually minor enough that the dealer or owner should easily be able to fix them. Thanks. Still hoping to figure out this low pressure at the sink. If it was my water regulator the entire rig would have low pressure, correct?

Kitchen Water Pressure???

My money if you don't have a kitchen inline filter Is some construction debris. May take some troubleshooting or back flushing to clear it.
Good luck and keep us posted. I love a challenge.

Think I've found the problem. There is a little valve where the hose attaches to the handle on the faucet. Unscrewed it and it was packed with plastic pipe shavings and and wood. Figured it was debris, just couldn't see where. I have not reattached it yet to test, but I don't see how any water was getting through. Thanks for the help, I'll report back tomorrow after I can test it.
