leaking lippert faucet

We just purchased a new grey wolf in July and noticed the kitchen faucet was wobbly. I was able to tighten it up but it was still leaking from the faucet and we found water under the sink as well. I contacted Lippert and they mailed me a new faucet and it is still leaking from the faucet. It is a real slow drip. Anybody else have this issue? It is the gooseneck stainless steel faucet with no pulldown.

Most people don't even fool with getting them replaced, they just replace them with a quality residential unit of their choosing.

if faucet #3 leaks again then thats what I'll end up doing. Didn't expect the 2nd one to leak. Theyre sending me a different model faucet but I'm sure theyre built the same inside

We have the same faucet in our 18MT. It always has a few extra drops after each shut off and then it is fine. We started putting a towel on the counter under it on travel days to catch the few drips and that’s good enough for me.

Still drips

Thanks for responding. My third one they upgraded me to the pull down version. It still drips a couple of times after shutting it off but no leaks under the cabinet like the original one. After doing more research it appears that with high arch faucets the small amount of water after the curve has nowhere to go except out the faucet and it is normal. I still think it's unacceptable especially for an RV faucet where extra water could be detrimental. I'll stick with it for now since the drips are smaller than the first and stops quicker. If not I'll end up buying a different style of faucet

We have high arch faucets in our home and our RV. None of them drip, even a little.
The first thing I do for any new RV is replace all the junk faucets with better quality residential faucets.
Next, I replace all the drawer and cabinet latches

We have a different faucet but the same handle. We noticed today it is leaking under the handle. Is there a way to try tightening it?

Single handle pull down kitchen faucet in Georgetown.

My kitchen faucet was leaking around the handle. Just a drip now and then . I removed the single handle by turning counterclockwise. Mind the finish. After removal you will see an Allen set screw, loosen counterclockwise and remove shroud. Around canister you will see a 4 prong keeper nut, remove counterclockwise. Chinese canister will pull out. Replaced with Moen 4000 canister for 9$ Home Depot.

So a Moen cartridge directly replaced the OEM cartridge in the existing faucet? That's good to know.
