WJ 3006 Kitchen Taps Leaking

Took our windjammer out for three days camping. Discovered the kitchen taps were leaking at the base. How in the world does one get under to work on them. It a really confined space without any visibility! Has anyone tackled this problem?

Replace the faucet. Just happened with our bathroom faucet. They're cheap plastic. It will require a bit of contortionist maneuvers, but it can be done!

Yes, for a guy that had his knee replaced 7 weeks ago, it was a ????
Had to remove some drain pipes, the centre portion where the doors close and contorted to remove all the connections. Now to find a replacement set of taps. Stay tuned.

Actually pictures doesn't show what is done. The important part is removing the style that the doors close against. Then remove some of the drain black pipes. This allows better access under the kitchen counter. It not the easiest, but the arm and hand can get to the taps and unscrew the hoses. Then it's easy to pull the old tap out. One problem I'm having is that the new taps usually just go down one hole instead of the three. The water lines are too stiff to use the one hole, so I have to look around for that one. The hot and cold water lines are positioned to attach to the three holes. Can't get one here in town. Anyway, wasn't as big a job as I thought.
