One more possibility - If it is only the kitchen sink, maybe a chunk of water heater "crud" or other "stuff" is lodged in the neck of the sink faucet after the valves but before the aerator. This would block the same amount of water no matter which valve is open.

Any idea how to clear it, if it is there?

If you have a low point drain you could open it, open your tap to let air into the system and everything should exit out the drain, might take a couple of tries.

Cheers

I don't know if your faucet disconnects at the base. If not, how about poking a soft piece of wire up the faucet to break it up? Or, after disconnecting the faucet feeds, blow it out with air pressure?

Tried low-point drain. My advice is to turn the water pump off before you do that.
Didn't help though.
So, I took the aerator apart yet again and blew the bits out with a can of pressurized air ( left over from my career as a photographer ), and, of course, despite careful attention when taking it apart, I'm not sure I got it back together properly.
Might be a slight improvement.
Pix with and without aerator. With aerator doesn't appear to be aerating.
Might see if I can find new aerator.

Unscrewed the plastic nut that holds faucet on but I didn't want to tug on the faucet too hard and it didn't want to release. If I knew more about how it is put together, I'd go there.

Just went out to the side shed and found I have a half dozen aerators. Have to see if one of them fits. Never throw anything away.

Oh, just the what the world needed. How about the whole trailer in camo, you could boondock anywhere and no one would know you're there.
