Replacement Sink

We want to replace our acrylic sink with a stainless steel one. Does anyone know the specs and or manufacturer/model of a drop in replacement?

I found a couple of 13"x15" sinks that may fit the bill. They may all be built by Heng though, many list their manufacturers part number. The best description is at RV and Van Surplus, their Item #0711003. I think the same sink is at they list as Heng's model SSS-1315-5-22.

Does anyone know if these are a drop in replacement for the existing acrylic sink. We have a 2011 Escape 19.

Any leads on a replacement stainless faucet?

Thanks in advance.

I'd call ETI and ask if the current stainless sink is still good for replacing yours. If it is then you could either run up there and have them swap it or tell you where to buy one and what it is.

Greg:

I just sent an email to Escape asking this. I thought I'd try here and also there.

Makes little sense to drive two days to Chilliwack to have the sink switched. Also i'd like to avoid shipping one from Canada. Hopefully someone here, or at Escape, can provide a manufacturer and model I can order in the States.

Thanks though, and I am pursuing that line on inquiry.

I hear ya Hugh, thought you might be heading up to the rally....
ETI get's most of their parts in US so I would imagine if they could tell you the model and brand you could find it online or local US.

That depends on how much plumbing you want to do. You can use any household type faucet like those sold at a home improvement or hardware store. But, most of these have the water lines already attached that are designed to replace the existing lines.

Also, your countertop only has two holes in it - no center hole. So, even if you use a modern faucet with pre-connected lines, you'll need the base plate or escutcheon (to cover the existing holes) and you'll need to drill a hole for the lines going down from the center. That's because the stock Escape faucet is of the type that uses 1/2" threaded connections that attach directly under the hot and cold knobs, and they only drill holes where they need to - 8" spread. The water mixes inside the base of the faucet. Many modern faucets mix the water inside the center valve, and the base (or escutcheon) if any, is dry.

So, if you want a direct replacement, choose a faucet with 1/2 standard pipe threads under the hot and cold knobs. You then use your existing plumbing and it's an easy swap out. Otherwise, you have to cut your existing pex lines and add a male fitting on the end to attach the new faucet's water lines to.

I did a swap out of the faucet just this last weekend. Because I wanted an easy swap out, I chose a faucet with 1/2" threads under the knobs, that mixes the water inside the base. Details are here:

I like that faucet, well I like it if it's the first picture. Great improvement over the stock Escape faucet, second pic. If this is backwards please sell me the old (first picture) one. :-)

Do you have any additional information on the faucet? You mentioned it's a Peerless Stainless Steel, do you have a model number? Was it from a local suplier like Lowes or Home Depot?

Good information for installation. This will help me.

Thanks, it looks good.

Yes Hugh, the new one is in the first picture. You can tell the old one by the shiny plastic and the clear knobs.

Here's the link for the model:

http://www.amazon.com/Peerless-P2995...ilpage_o04_s00

But, check out the "Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed" section at the bottom of the page. Many of those are the same type, and will work as a direct replacement too.

Foolish me, I found all the information deeper in the thread. The faucet is:

Peerless P299568LF-SS Choice. Bought on Amazon. There are lots of more fancy models, but I wanted a direct replacement with no tools or mods.

A link to the Amazon site at SpringField Marine Pedestal - and a few more mods

Thanks again.

You are welcome. By the way, we still have the night light you and Denise gave us in Monument Valley, and it makes a great power tester.

Hi Currinh . Escape will take your package and it is shipped from Sumas , so the shipping is not bad and not from Canada . Pat
