I hooked my new Rockwood Mini Lite 2306 up to city water for the first time today in the driveway. I activated all of my faucets and found nothing more then a trickel coming from both the hot and cold sides of the kitchen sink one. Since both sides were effected I figured the problem must be in the faucet it's self.
I cut off the water and took the faucet apart and found the neck area right at the screen of the faucet end clogged with saw dust. I put everything back together and turned the water back on. I then heard that sicking sound of water spraying everywhere.
I shut off the water hose but it was too late there was water dripping from the overhead cabinets and all over the floor.
I forgot to replace a screw that held one of the knobs on. It blew clear off the faucet. I cleaned up the mess and now have the camper opened up and drying out. I got all the water I could find up with towels but I know some went under the stove and furnace where I just can't get too. I hope there is no long term damage
Has anyone had problems like this and did the water do any long term damage to your RV?
I had read many threads about stupid stuff like this and the poor quailty control of the RV manufactures. The faucet worked fine during my PDI so the saw dust must have collected and clogged the faucet when I first activted the water supply at home. I have no one to blame but myself for forgetting to put that screw back in but I should not have had to work on it in the first place.
As a side note when I took all the dividers out of the cabinets to let the camper air out I was amazed at the amount of stuff the builders left behind. I found short sections of electrical wire, 2 chewing gum wrapers, tons of saw dust and a plastic parts bag of some sort. I think Forest River needs a better quailty control program.
