New Bathroom fixtures

I finally installed a new faucet for the bathroom in our 3010. It's a Peerless from Lowe's. Had to adjust the holes a little so the left handle wouldn't hit the wall. Did a pressure test, but haven't used either yet. Hoping the single knob in the shower makes it easier for the wife to get the mix easier.Click image for larger version

What model motorhome do you have?


Nice job and this is a first for around here.
Haven't seen anyone change the shower faucet/valve.
What did it look like in the shower hole?
Did you find flexible hot and cold lines to hook up to the new faucet?
Any more pictures?
Thanks

It's a Sunseeker 3010. Shower wasn't bad. Original was 2 knobs that my wife had a hard time remembering what direction to turn for on and off, so trying to get the right mix of hot and cold was a pain. The access door under the faucet makes it easy to get to the plumbing. There's enough flex on the pipes to get the connections on with no problem. What other pictures would you want?

The bathroom faucet is a Peerless from Lowe's. Heavy duty real brushed nickel.
The shower faucet is a Dura Faucet. Made for Rv's, plastic.

On a trip to Castaways in Berlin, MD. First time trying out the new fixtures. Bathroom faucet makes it easy to wash hands now. Faucet in shower works nice too. Very easy to get the water mixture the way you want it with only one knob.

Nice job...aren't you the same guy we were talking about doing this in a thread two weeks ago or so.
Nice job. I like using home quality faucets in the RV. The stock RV ones are just cheapo fealing.

Anyway...sweet!!!!!

Thanks. The Dura Faucet really interests me. Three years now and I always forget which way to turn the knobs!!

First State Park (water/electric) adventure with our sons family, 2 grandkids 3 and 4. Grey tank filled up the first night, in spite of cautioning everyone to conserve. Also brought a 25gal portable tote.
Kids are so cute and they love to wash their hands in the bathroom, hence the rapid fill grey tank. So, has anyone tried the self closing style faucets like they have in some restaurants and on airplanes? I did find some on line but didn't know the dimensions. Also, there is a replacement for the aerator on the kitchen sink that has what looks like a plastic matchstick in the middle that is normally closed and opens when you move it, like rinsing a plate. Still researching but will probably do both of these to help with the grey tank.
