2015 rockwood signature ultra light 8289WS

Hi again. We have a small issue with our hot water faucet in our bathroom. It squeaks when turned on. I used wd 40 on all our squeaky closets and doors but it does nothing to eliminate the squeaky faucet. Hopefully it's a easy quick fix. I'd hate to think I'd have to replace it.
Thanks

Ours does the same. It's because they are of cheap plastic. Thinking of replacing it with a standard household type from HD or Lowe's. Many in here have done it. Some have had these cheap plastic factory ones fall apart on them while in use so for the price of a new, nicer household faucet, I will just replace.

Easy to replace...you may need a simple adapter connector due to different sizes between RV fixtures and standard home fixtures. Available in any hardware store.

I was told by my service tech that they squeak. There is no way to lube it to quit. I will be replacing mine

Mine squeaked as well. It took it all apart and used some Plumber's Grease, it still squeaks sometimes. I've just lived with it for 2 years.

It's a pretty easy replacement -- the plus is you can replace it with one of the brushed nickel faucets that will match all the cabinet hardware in your bathroom

My solution is to make sure that I turn the bathroom faucets on either after I take my hearing aids out at night, or before I insert them in the morning.

Shut the water off, remove the handles and pull the insides of the faucets out and apply a liberal coat of Danco silicone paste. Will last about 6-8 wks of constant use.

Get Danco at Lowes/HD/Walmart, etc.

Please notice that OldCoot is referring to a "silicone" grease.

Applying a petroleum based lubricant such as WD40 "MAY" react with the o'rings, and can also be toxic.

I've seen o'ring dissolve when lubricated with a petroleum based product.
