Hey Happy Campers!
Question: The single handle faucet in our 1989 16ft Scamp starts dripping some when the electric pump is on-in addition to this, the outside direct water hook up fixture also starts dripping. Why is this happening? Faucet need replaced??
Help-I treasure every drop of fresh water we carry in this, hate to see it drip away!!
Also wanting some helpful tips on obtaining a REASONABLY priced awning for our 16footer--suggestions??
We have camped several times already this year, since the weather has been so nice and warm! Lovin every minute of it!
Thanks all!
Sue & Gene

You may need some new gaskets or O rings. They also make a pressure regulator that goes between your fresh water hook up and your hose.

RE: Leaky Places...
I always connect a pressure regulator at the c/g's faucet, then I connect the hose to that. WalMart's RV section has them, less than $10.
If you are leaking water out of your city connection, the check valve at the input needs to be repaired/replaced. Most city water input connections have these built in. A male hose thread screw cap, that fits into the input fitting, again a WalMart item, is also an acceptable fix.
About the Faucet:
If by "single handle" you mean cold water only, I have a good one we just took out of our 2007 Scamp when we added hot water, you can have it for shipping $$$. Drop me a private note.
If it's a single handle hot/cold faucet:
IKEA has a very nice single handle kitchen faucet that I have used several times, less than $20. Here is a link:

I have also installed a number of IKEA Boholmen sinks in mini-RV's:

Good Luck
