The bathroom one was too near the backside of the sink, always splashed water back there. New one, high arc, much further into the sink with larger handles.

Kitchen one was a bear to get the water temp regulated. Was nice enough, but was terrible trying to get warm water.

HINT for the folks that make our rigs. Pretend YOU are the one that has to use some of the stuff you make! What a novel concept!

I now return you Back to the thread....lol....both faucets needed no adapters or the like. The kitchen, I had to open the hole about 1/8" to fit. Because my old faucet had the water valve and handle in a separate hole from the spout, I had to fill in the hole with a soap dispenser. Lucky me....another open box buy, missing the up pipe....my empty hand lotion bottle fit it fine.

Deals are out there....just have to keep your eyes open, and know what all you need.

Not a motorhome but we had similar problem. Once we hooked up to city water at a new site, the handle jiggled open and was spraying water before we could even open the slides.

The fix was a simple ball type bungee, holding the handle closed.

Great point. I think the handle on the one I installed will move freely with bumps. Will keep an eye on it....

On another visit, found a nice real metal faucet for the bathroom....open box!
It it, when it works!

Change the battery every year to keep it from running down leaking, corroding the contacts and stopping it from working. Ask me how I know.

I replaced the kitchen faucet with a Lowes one. I had to buy 2 connectors to mate up to the RV water lines,otherwise it was a simple change.
New faucets are limited to 1.5 gpm. After 2 years the flow reduced to a trickle and it wasn't the pump or filters at fault. I found that there was junk in the flow reducing valves so a drill bit solved the problem, permanently.

DouglasReid, I did not bother to worry about using batteries. It runs on 6 volts DC. I wired mine to a 6volt regulator chip. Tapped into a 12 volt source. Manufacturer claimed 1-2 years on a set of 4 AA batteries with everyday use....so it cannot draw much current at all!

The chip cost a whopping .14 ! Just 3 connections ... And a few feet of 22ga wire. And an inline fuse (1/4 amp) at the 12 volt tap.

I used these:
