water only trickles out of kitchen sink

Good day Thor owners! We recently purchased a 2009 Thor wave 26rls. We are having trouble with the water only trickling out of the kitchen sink. The water thank is full, the bathroom water flow is fine, the pump is on, you can hear it kick in when you open the water valve (it's always been quite loud). The gennie has been on for a while. Any thoughts?
Thank you for any tips!
Caitlin

I wonder if those screens that are in in place by the fittings are clogged up?

+1 on check your screens, they are everywhere there is a screw on flexible water line.
If your kitchen in in your slide check for kinks.
Does it work better when the slide is closed?

Also look at the flex hose that connects the faucet to the spray head. It has a weight on it that often kinks the hose. If collapsed there are several ways to prevent the collapse.

It doesn't look like your sink is in a slide and it's not too far away from the bathroom sinks, so if the bathroom sink works properly then you need to check the kitchen sink. Is it the same with both Hot and Cold water?

Start with the aerator screen at the end of the spigot.
Someone recently with a similar problem found a clogged inlet screen where the hose attaches to the sink. Disconnect the hoses to the sink and check for good water flow there (into a bucket would be nice). An 11 year old sink may have corrosion blocking the flow or if the RV sat for awhile maybe even an insect nest in the spigot arm. Maybe remove the spigot arm next if you still haven't resolved it. If you made it this far and still have a problem then maybe the big box hardware store is the answer you need. Should be standard spacing on the holes. Measure to be sure.

I had a similar problem on our 30fe. It actually ended up being a clogged filter off of the water pump. The bathroom had enough pressure but by the time it made it to the kitchen there just wasn’t enough.

I had the same problem in our ACE 30.3 2019.

To trouble shoot, I went to lowes and bought two connection hoses from lowes, and took the the entire faucet to our garage sink.
Before connecting it, I detached the hose that connects from the "mixer" to the faucet head.
I tried blowing through it, (yes, with my mouth) and it allowed air to pass easily. - Well that doesn't make sense. -
I then connected it to the wall, and it worked fine.
WHAT?
I put it back in the coach, and it worked fine.
My suggest is to leave it in the coach, disconnect the single hose that goes to the faucet head, and see if you can blow through it.
It may start working, or at least you know where the problem is not.

Yes - I do expect some you to doubt this happened. I couldn't even explain it to my wife, she thought I was an idiot and it couldn't be true.

If you have a pull-out faucet, check under the sink to see if the hose is crimped.

Elite Washington has a good point. Try removing the supply line from the faucet get a bucket and then turn the water on that tell you if it is the faucet or the filter, good luck

If you go to the he trouble of removing the cheap a## rv faucet replace it with a much better brand from one of the home improvement stores, you'll be glad you did.
Yes confirm there's water getting to the faucet.
