We have a 2003 26' rear bath. Just finished dewinterizing but have no water in the kitchen sink or shower. I do have good water pressure in the bathroom sink and the toilet. The pump sounds normal and there doesn't seem to be air in the non-functioning lines. Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

Check all low point drains for good water flow . If they all flow well then check strainers in
each faucet they may be clogged by sediment from the water heater.

We have solved the water pressure problem. Both the kitchen sink and shower heads were blocked and could not be fixed; the problem was not the strainers. Both were almost completely blocked-just a trickle of water out of them-and no way to clean them. Bought new ones and that fixed the problems. Very easy to fix; unscrew the old and attach the new. The shower head was replaced with an Oxygenics RV Shower Upgrade Kit and it is very good, much more pressure than the original. The kitchen head was replaced with a similar one from Home Depot.

The Oxygenics is the suitable showerhead for low water pressure. Especially when living in low water pressure areas, it obviously adds water pressure to the shower, and I can't stand the slow flow of water on the skin. In addition, high pressure taps are also a useful gadget.

This thread is rather strange. No additional posts in the last five years and then this one appears informing us that the product mentioned is a good one. ????????
