That seems easy enough. What should I look for specifically in WalMart?

I'm sure you can get it anywhere.......we just happened to be in a Walmart.

EDIT: I misread your post.........LOL
Just go to the plumbing and find the item like the picture.

And to the Forum.

Byron, that plastic tubing worked like a charm. No more water all over the counter now and dripping everywhere. Thanks for that easy fix for a big problem.

The way I've done it on my other trailers (will do the same on my Burro) is go to Lowes and get a regular bathroom faucet . Run city water to one handle and 'on board' water to the other. I also installed a12v water pump in line with the 'on board' water. Works quite well.


(incase you want to upgrade your system)

Gage, I PURPOSELY changed out the bathroom faucet that was original to my trailer for a hi-rise. The bathroom faucet was too low for my needs. YMMV A couple of simple mods that make a world of difference

I just might put a hi-rise in the Burro because of the lack of counter top.

It's an easy install.

1. Reach under the sink and unscrew the hose from the old faucet.
2. Unscrew nut that affixes the faucet to the counter.
3. Pull out the old faucet and drop in the new faucet.
4. Attach the nut holding the faucet to the counter.
5. Screw on the water hose to the faucet.

6........Done


Replacing the pump faucet is just as easy except I think there are screws that go into the counter from the top that hold faucet in place.
