Will be adding hot water at the sink soon; added a new hot water tank for the toilet shower combo so thought why not hot water at the sink.
How does your 12V work, do you have pix of what the water "faucet" or 'outlet" looks like for the water that is pumped out?

Our 2004 Scamp had pressurized cold water only, the 1994 BigFoot came with low pressure cold water only, our 1973 Hunter came only with a hand pump on the sink faucet. All three were updated to full pressure, hot & cold water systems.
Very True Bob, its interesting though, I have a 1964 canned ham which has a similar setup to my 1971 Campster which is similar to my 1980 scamp. I guess I figured that was just the way they did it "back then".

Cold city water inlet/faucet. And Rocket style hand pump for water from a storage tank.

I did add a switch to prevent accidental operation underway. The high faucet is much more convenient for filling water vessels and rinsing my hands, dishes, etc. Plus I only have one faucet.

Like you, I started out wanting to keep it all original, but I came to realize that it is not a classic car, it is a recreational product and no one cares unless the modification looks like a hack job.
This is exactly what I'm goingto install...where did you find the faucet? Most I have found are supplied with two handles (hot/cold); I only want one.

Also, did you put backflow protection on the tank supply line?

I use IKEA single handle faucets on all of my update jobs. About $20, mounts with a single hole, and is easy to install.
