No water pressure in the bathroom sink?

I am currently in Lincoln, NH after riding my bike from home in St. Paul MN. In a week, I will be in Bar Harbor, ME. My wife, Lindy, is bringing our 17b (the Lark) to meet me when I get there, and then we are going to visit the Maritime provinces before we return. So I am about 2200 miles from the trailer as the bicycle goes.

Lindy filled the trailer with water, and all works fine except the bathroom sink. Only a dribble comes out of those faucets. I don't remember any sort of shut-off for the bathroom faucets. Do any of you have any idea what the problem might be? We had the trailer re-winterized when we returned from our south western jaunt in March, and this is the first time we are using it since then.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks again.

Leon

Have you tried cleaning out the little filter screen in the faucet? I think it is also called an aerator. Usually you can just unscrew that from the tip of the faucet. Sometimes sediment gets trapped in there. We had that problem with our kitchen sink and there was just a bunch of sediment in the screen filter...once we got that out the faucet was fine.

Is she hooked to city water or using the pump for water from the fresh water tank?
We had an issue with the kitchen faucet on my last trip. Bath worked fine. We removed the aerator and found a considerable amount of debris. This prevents the pump from working properly. Removed the debris and all was good.

Pay attention when you take the aerator apart so you can put it back together.

Thanks much. The aerator makes sense to me. It happens whether using the pump or city water. Thanks again

The likely cause of a clogged facet aerator is the hot water tank sediment. If it continues to happen, pull your anode out and flush out your hot water tank.
