Experienced very, very low water pressure on cold side of kitchen sink faucet. Hot side had super pressure. This is hose fm house to trailer situation. Took off cold supply line under sink and turned on water....flowed great. This tells me my faucet is the culprit. Does the stock faucet have a separate valves for hot and cold? 1992 Casida Spirit.

If it has separate hot and cold valves on it, then it obviously has separate hot and cold supply lines to the faucet assembly. No it doesn't have separate isolation valves under the cabinet like household sinks have. Just disconnect the water supply (city water) and bleed the pressure off before disconnecting and/or changing it out. 

 

If it is bad, why not buy a "gooseneck" faucet, that will put the spout higher, to replace it with. Any standard big box store 4" faucet assembly will drop right in. It'll give you more room underneath it to actually get a pot under it than the crappy little short factory installed one.
