Loose kitchen faucet - 19.6

Single lever faucet assembly is loose. Took a picture of the underside & see 1 screw (though there may be more). Problem is...there’s no way I can get my head & an arm into that under sink cabinet to see & fix it. I don’t see a way to remove the panel under the bar to gain access that way

Any ideas from fellow 19.6 owners? (Tried to attach the picture)

There is going to be one more Philip’s head screw directly across form the one in your picture. Use a No.2 or a little larger screwdriver to tighten both of them. You see where they are in your picture and you now know where they are, so you are just going to have to feel your way up to them and tighten them once you find them with your fingers and screwdriver.

X2 what Bruce said. You'll have to go a good bit by feel, but there's another screw there.

the screws you see are just used to lock the larger nut in place . loosen the screws then tighten the large usually flat nut then re-tighten the set screws . There is not much room for sure but take your time .

Just to give you an idea of what you’re dealing with and the purpose of those two screws and the large metal washer between them and the underside of the sink or countertop, here’s a picture from a Kohler kitchen faucet instruction sheet showing the steps for securing the faucet properly:

If you want it to stay tight you will tighten the nut all the way and then use the set screws . of course i doubt it's a kohler faucet in the RV .

Faucet now tight

Thanks, everyone - the nut is tight, as is the screw...faucet is solid. All set for winter storage before this week’s snowfall.
Helped a lot to remove door from undersink cabinet.

Faucets

I understand your issue with getting you head and arm into the area to see what your doing. Invest in a handheld mirror. I had a problem with my water pump wiring on my trailer and the only way to see what you're doing is with a mirror because on mine the connections face the floor of the cabinet, so my wife handed me her mirror and all is well now. Great tool for tight spaces.
