Faucet replacement

I'm looking for a replacement faucet for the one in this picture (I know it's not the best picture). I looked online at Camping World and JC Whitney with no success. Any ideas?

That looks very simular the ones used in the colman trailers from the early 90s, shold be able to find a suitable replacement at most any RV parts deparment.

It looks like it might be one of these - squinting

But I can't tell if you have the hand pump or the switch?




Singleton's RV Salvage & Sales, Inc.

I have seen the hand pump one at a local rv center. If that's the one, let me know what's the best price you can find.

Regards,

Matt

I checked West Marine but I didn't find anything similar.

It's a cross between the two. It doesn't have the pump or a switch. Just a handle and a spout. It's set up for city water only.

Leisure Products

The unit in my TT was made by Leisure Components. I found both a repair kit and a replacement unit available on Amazon. The URL for my unit is Amazon.com: Leisure Components 131-5 2-Way Low Boy Hand Water Pump: Automotive. If you search Amazon for RV faucet, they have 4 pages of photos of different units.

Well that didn't work out. When the package arrived, no faucet. I called and they told me it is no longer available.

I did find another supplier who did have it. Their web site is: Tweetys.com - RV Parts & Accessories - 5th Wheel Hitches, RV Parts and Accessories

I can't vouch for their service yet, but it's another resource possibility for the rest of you.

Thanks to those who replied.

I've ordered from Tweety's with no problems. Some of these RV accessories just kind of come in a box with no installation instructions though. I had that happen with my AC/DC distribution unit and a power vent (VanAir). I guess they just figure everyone knows what to do. I think the faucet should be straightforward though.

I do remember some contractor who plumbed up a toilet to the hot water line and every time it flushed there was a piping hot bowl.

I replaced mine with a water dispenser looking like that:




Paid 15.00 for it a local plumbing store.

I was looking at one of those but I didn't want to have to fill the extra holes I would have had. I would have like to have a taller like that one.

You know, filling a hole may not be as "complicated" as one may think...

If I'm not mistaken, I believe you can find plugs or caps specifically designed to cover pre-cut holes used for hand spouts or those "in-sink" soap dispensers.

I'm always trying to solve problems by "re-purposing" off-the-shelf hardware or plumbing and electrical components. Ask your friendly, neighborhood Ace hardware person for his/her ideas...

Or, if you're not worried about your sink looking "unsophisticated" I bet you could use an appropriately-sized automotive expandable rubber freeze plug.

Or, you could find a free "Formica" color sample chip, cut it to size and epoxy the patch over your hole...

I really would of only had two screw holes but since I could find a direct replacement, I bought it.

I did buy some fiberglass cloth today so I could play with it.
