Dripping kitchen faucet

I have a 2014 Flagstaff 29RLSS trailer. I have a faucet in the kitchen that continually drips from the cold water side. (hot side is okay)

Can this faucet be repaired with home plumbing parts, or does the whole unit need to be replaced? Are replacement parts only available from an RV center?

Thanks for info.

If the faucet appears to be cheaply built, I'd consider replacing the entire thing with a high quality residential unit. Otherwise, simply relieve the water pressure, remove the knob, and unscrew the bonnet. It probably does not use washers, but it may have a foreign object blocking the valve from closing completely.

Shut the city water and the water pump off, open the hot and cold faucets, then remove the cold water handle and remove the center of the faucet. There is probably a pc of ? somewhere on the plastic or O ring. Go to Lowes/HD and get some Danco silicone grease and lube the inside and re-assemble. While you're at it, do the same for the hot side to prevent it squeaking later on. Re-assemble and turn the city water/water pump on and see what transpires.

As new as it is, nothing is wore out. Take it apart and get what ever junk is in there that is causing the leak.

I think you all are more than likely correct, there may be some foreign matter in the faucet. I know it is under warranty, but that is a long haul from our house.

Thanks for all your help.

My sister and brother both replaced theirs with residential models from Lowes. Look good and work great!

Since there are no individual shut off valves at each sink, back flushing the valves is hard to do. With valves you just shut off the hot or cold to find out which valve is leaking, then remove that feed line and crack open the "good" valve to flush the offending matter into a bucket.

This is an edit: I just realized this will not work. Disassembly or replacement are your only options.


Removing these valves can be problematic (again plastic) and if the repair does not work you might consider replacement.
