galley sink faucet replacement?

I am replacing the countertop in my 19. The original has come delaminated and we want a new 2 burner to replace the 3 that we NEVER use all 3. turning it sideways to make more room.



I'm thinking of replacing the sink faucet while I'm in there and have things apart. Sink is fine but.....



What is the best replacement for this? I've looked at some BUT wanted to ask you all. I know someone has done it and looking for any opinions?

I'm aware of 3 or more different sink faucets over the years and 2 sinks, is it a 2 hole or one hole mount?

Thanks for starting this thread, Flatpick. I just lit up my computer to ask about the same problem...

My counter top is also delaminating, and while I have the two burner stove, it is the old style with the domed metal cover and I am considering the idea of replacing it with the new style stove with the tempered glass top that sits flush with the counter, making much more useful space when not actually using the stove.

Does anyone out there know the source of the new stoves and their approximate cost? Is replumbing the propane lines required, and does the interior cabinetry bracing require modification to fit the new style stove?

Regarding the faucet styles, there are lots of them that seem to fit, you just have to find what you like. Since my wife does the cooking, she figures I should do the cleanup, so I'm just looking for utility in the faucet department.

I did not replace our tap as it works well but I did redo the counter top if you want to see what I did and grab a few tips in this link.
Good luck!

You can find the newer Suburban SDS2 cooktop out there but prices seem high. I believe Myron got a quote from ETI and even with shipping it would be less but check for yourself.
https://www.dyersonline.com/suburban...ass-cover.html

Check your cut-out size versus the existing one. As long as the new one is bigger you are good. No cabinet bracing should need to be adjusted.

Some of us have done Dickinson Marine cooktops. Probably the gold standard.
They are expensive but you can find them much cheaper than the price shown on the Dickinson website.

This is so true, pick out just about any faucet you like and install it. There are hundreds out there that will work. Everyone will have a slightly difference preference. I found a Cuisinart tap on sale super cheap and bought it to use. Works great.

Ok maybe it’s not quite that easy. The cut-out for the older stock Atwood DV20 2-burner is rectangular. The newer SDS2 is larger but has a radius on the corners. You’d have to overlay the two to be certain they can be swapped. Cut-out dimensions are in the manuals linked below. Obviously if one is doing a new counter it doesn’t matter.

Thanks for all the good ideas, everybody. Now all I have to do is decide if I want to go camping or if I want to become an Escape restoration specialist.

Sometimes when you are up to your neck with alligators swimming around you, you remember that your initially wanted just to drain the swamp.........

Some of us are already in too deep. You know it's bad when you start working on other forum members trailers.
