2020 Hurricane 29m - Very low water pressure outdoor kitchen

3rd trip out. First time with no hookups, so I am using the fresh water tank and onboard pump.

Outdoor kitchen pressure was fine on city water. But on the pump it is barely a trickle. Sometimes just drips. The pump will come on intermittently at first, but will eventually just stop.

Pressure everywhere else inside is adequate.

Is this simply because the outdoor kitchen is so far down the line from the fresh water tank and the pump? If so, would a bigger pump help?

Plastic shavings from the fresh water tank gets pulled into the water system by the pump. Usually clogging the filter and maybe the first elbow fitting off the tank. City hookup is after the pump and filter so the problem appears to be pump related. Check the filter first. Remove the aerator from the faucet and check for debris and water flow without the aerator.

It was the aerator on the outdoor kitchen faucet. Only a few tiny little plastic pieces, but there was a white disk in there with a singular hole and another with an array of tiny holes on the outside. Even though there wasn’t much plastic matter, I’m sure it was blocking up those tiny holes.

Many thanks for the help. Flowing perfectly now.
