Rather than replacing the faucet due to the fact that it is new, I'd take the leaking faucet apart and just clean and lube it. Simple, takes about 5 minutes and some Danco silicone grease.

X2

Then get a good filter. Chances are it is construction debris in the valve (based on age of unit), but it could be campground water junk too.

My toilet valve clogged when I drained my hot water tank with the low point drains. A nodule of calcium got sucked into the pipes and when I flushed and de-winterized the camper the incoming water pushed the nodule into the flush valve.

Got It Fixed!

There was some junk in the cold water faucet. The junk seemed to be from new construction, new trailer. Not sure how the junk got in there, but it happens. I just started removing stuff from the handle down and saw the problem.

Thanks for all your input.
