Need to replace the kitchen faucet

Has anyone replaced the standard kitchen sink ETI was installing on the classic trailers? Back before everyone started getting custom sinks and faucets. Mines shot, can't get the spigot nut to tighten.

Plumbing is my weak suit, looking for a direct fit replacement. Not a heck of a lot of room to work under there.

I did the same one as Robert and it was very easy. Just tighten two connections underneath.

SpringField Marine Pedestal - and a few more mods

Replaced ours with the same one - easy install and after a year of lots of use 4 months worth, still working great.

I replaced the kitchen faucet in my Scamp twice, it has a standard bar sink. The first time, I squeezed my shoulders and head through the 10-1/2 inch cabinet door. What a PITA! Bruised up and it took nearly two hours. The second time, I removed the sink first. Was able to work from the top of the kitchen counter and reached underneath. From start to finish about 30 minutes and no bruises. Seriously, much easier the second time. Plus I was able to check the counter wood for any leaking that may have occurred around the rim of the sink. Easy to rebed the sink with plumbers putty.

The plastic nut is probably cracked. Both Myron and myself have had that happen. Replacements are available if that's the problem and would rather not replace the faucet.

I'd just use silicone.

Your trailer. Actually, even I don't disparage silicone use on the interior of the trailer....

You threw me Bob with your original post, or I would have chimed in. Your post mentioned replacing the kitchen sink, not the faucet.

Yes, we have the Peerless that was linked above and it's worked well. Don't even need tools to swap out the old one - all doable by hand.

Any faucet on 8" centers with a wet escutcheon and 1/2" NPT fittings will work here as a direct swap of the stock 2 handle, with no plumbing changes. No need to settle for the cheap plastic RV types.
