Kitchen Faucet

Hi folks,

I'm a noob, I just bought my first RV, 2012 Sunseeker. I have tons of questions but this is the plumbing section so I'll get right to the point. My kitchen faucet is plastic and the hot water handle just snapped off in my hand yesterday, can some one point me to an Internet resource where I can order replacement parts? I can't find a part number and I'm just wondering how you all do it; replace the whole faucet or look for parts?

Why not go to your local Home Depot or Lowes and pick up one you like. I have done so in the past on our Diesel Pusher and a 5th wheel.

Yes HD or Lowes are by far the better option, over the long run a metal one will be MUCH BETTER and you will thank yourself for it.

That's great advice, I didn't think of that option first because I incorrectly assumed "RV" parts would be different. Thanks.

Many times "RV Parts" are different, usually in that they are overpriced and of an inferior quality...LOL!!!

Find a nice reasonably priced faucet that you like and go for it. You do however want to make sure of the handle spacing just as you would for any residential fitment of faucet.

Had this happen, earlier this summer, when I looked close I noticed threads on the handle, and screwed it back together. check yours before you replace it. I guess the vibration from travel loosened it up.

Good advice Mac, yeah it does have threads, however there are just enough threads to make it look like its firmly attached. I decided on Gorilla glue for a temp fix, the wife is looking for a replacement now.

Most kitchen faucets are called a 8" center set because they fit in holes that are drilled 8" on center where the bathroom are 4" center sets. These are common house hold sizes. While your replacing the faucet think about a goose neck with a spray.

Will most RV's also be drilled to accomodate the 8" or 4" center sets? Never taken my RV faucets apart but sure would like to lose the bathroom one..every time we use it it feels like it could just break, and they squeak alot....cheap plastic.
