Leaking bathroom faucet

Just picked up our 19 this morning and are down in Bellingham. As soon as we hooked into water the bathroom tap started leaking. About a drip every 2 seconds. Anyone know if it’s a tap with a washer and hopefully and simple fix?

It is quite likely it is a piece of crud flushed out of the water line. Try opening the tap full volume for just a bit see if it flushes it out, or sometimes you have to pull the cartridge out to clean the seat. These are not super expensive taps at all, and not certain if replacement washers are available. If it persists, give Escape a call.

Where is the leak, out of the faucet or at a supply line underneath? Is is where the shower hooks up?

Sorry I don’t know if the bath faucet uses a washer or not but I have a question just out of curiosity - If you disconnect or turn off the city water inlet (so it’s not pressurizing the system) then turn on the water pump, does it still leak? Also, are you using a water pressure regulator? High city water pressure is a possible cause of leaks. If you are using a regulator and you also experience leakage while using onboard pump, then you might have a defective faucet unit, in which case you should call ETI for advice.

You are using a pressure regulator, right?

The faucet you have is probably a Phoenix PF222241 Catalina 4in Lavatory Faucet, White.

This website has a link to download the manual.

https://www.etrailer.com/RV-Faucets/...BoCb10QAvD_BwE

From the manual:
6. WASHERLESS CARTRIDGE
If the faucet develops a leak, it may be the result of debris in the water line which is preventing a good seal. Turn the faucet full on and off several times to flush out any material that may be lodged in the faucet.

If the problem persists, follow these steps:
Turn off the water supply. Open the faucet to relieve any line pressure. Unsnap the Hot or Cold index button on the handle. Remove the handle screw using a phillips screwdriver. Lift the handle off. Remove the cartridge nut counterclockwise with an 8” crescent wrench. Remove the cartridge by gently prying the cartridge flange up with a small blade screwdriver. Remove rubber seat washer if necessary to remove debris. Replace all components in reverse order. Make sure triangle arrow on bonnet face points outboard and keys are in keyway. Turn water on and check for leaks. Replace handle, screw and button.

We had a similar problem with our new 19 we picked up in Jan 2018.
We were on city water with a regulator and had a leaky bathroom faucet.
After a few flushes of shower head and faucet it cleared itself which indicates to me it was debris in the line. Hopefully you willl have the same issue.
