Single Lever Sin Faucet

On top of all that has happened since coming to Alaska, now the gally faucet is leaking around its base. Took it apart, no broken seals, cleaned it, greased it up well, put it back together, lasted one day, now leaking once more from around its base a sink level...Home Depot here we come tomorrow in Anchorage, AK....when will it stop!!

So are you thinking of replacing it with a residential faucet? Or are you hitting Home Depot for parts or supplies to fix what you have?
Can any of these RV faucets be replaced with regular residential faucets? Never examined it, but I suppose there is nothing different to how the plumbing connects to the actual faucet, be it residential or RV specific.

I've noticed the faucet that came with our RV is lacking in the pressure and flow rate. Does going to the residential faucet help in this area? If it does I just might move up my plans on replacing ours.

It depends on how it is restricted (Screens/orifices) as to flow GPM. Now pressure is dependent on your incoming setting of your pressure regulator while on (City) water,and your pump setting while on (Stored Water). We have a (5gal) accumulator tank that eliminates the (Pump pulsation) also! Youroo!!

The “upgrade bug” is a tough fight !! The warranty makes for a good selling feature.

Plenty of water pressure while hooked up to house. I just noticed the faucet than came in the TT doesn't have much flow and when I talked to Palomino they said they are all like that. Without the faucet attached the main line seems to be ok. I plan to replace it at some point but if a residential would make a marked improvement then I would push some of the other improvement projects back. And I'll stop here not to further hijack the OP's thread.
