Everything...and the kitchen sink

Does anyone else have problems with leaking and/or dripping kitchen faucets?

Mine has been fixed and then replaced, and now the new one doesn't leak but continues to drip for awhile after use.

Your probably happier with one of your choosing, but under warranty I shouldn't have to by anything like that.

The day I took delivery of my brand new 2016 Surveyor 32RLTS I came into the kitchen and noticed water all over the floor. I had to remove the rear wall under the sink to access the plumbing and found the spray hose faucet was not threaded properly and was leaking. Later something was still leaking and I found that another connection as well as the trap were leaking. Thankfully nothing major or damaged, but left me with a less than stellar view. Other than that, our first camper and first year we've only had to replace the igniter for the gas water heater, and moldings are pooping loose everywhere.
Unfortunately I'm at a permanent site with no truck 2 hours from the dealer. So I'm learning a lot on my own.
Good luck! Make sure to you pipe tape too!

This seems to be a pretty common problem in a lot of RVs.

When I've walked through dealer lots or camping shows I've noticed a lot of them will zip tie a plastic bag over them to catch the antifreeze that drips out.

Mine drips a little after I use it but it goes right into the sink so it's not a big deal.

Thats why we now turn our water off when we are not at the seasonal spot - we had our outdoor shower come off on the back end inside under the bathroom sink just enough to let the water run.

took it all apart, found no thread tape used and it was on finger tight,
hair dryed as much as we could and then got a small space heater and left it on for the weekend.

Good thing we did because it also went down below freezing over night Saturday.
