"I hate this bathroom faucet" - me, to wife...

Finally decided to do something about the bathroom faucet in our 2306. I always HATED the way it didn't protrude out into the sink enough to get your hands under the stream of water. I would complain about it every time we camped but would forget about it when we got home. Or else I would put it off because I was afraid of standing on my head in the bathroom floor to change it.

I'm happy to report that it was about 10 times easier than I expected. In fact, it didn't even require any tools. The supply lines came loose and were re-tightened by hand, and the plastic collars that hold the faucet to the counter were also hand-tightened. Simply squat down in the bathroom floor and reach under the sink. Took about 10 minutes for the whole project (with 6 minutes devoted to scraping the old putty off).

So for those of you who loath your current faucet - don't fear changing it out!!

Looks good. I also complain about this same issue on our 23LB. I purchased a faucet last week and plan on installing it before we leave this weekend.
I like the looks of yours better than the one I bought. Where did you happen to get yours?

Good job. I changed ours out to a high rise model and changing the faucet took about the same amount of time you stated.

I bought a bar faucet for mine and loved it.

we changed the kitchen sink set as well as the shower head and the bathroom tap set right after we purchased our 09 bunkhouse. they were the old chrome style and we put in the oil rubbed bronzed finished ones.

super easy

you just need to remember to turn off the water hook up and release the pressure before you disconnect the first and subsequent lines

we also (meaning "I") changed the pitted chrome drain pieces with new chrome ones.

I sold my old tap sets at a flea market for 10$ less than I paid for my new ones.

When I replaced the one in my old camper I purchased mine form Lowes. Just the regular 4" center set bath faucet. That is also what I just purchased, but haven't yet installed, for our current camper.

Yep... standard sizes and connections. One of the first things we do on a new rig is replace all the cheapo faucets.

Our latest trailer came with some pretty decent fixtures, but I did change them all in the previous one. Cheap plastic junk. Got mine from Lowes.
