New faucet

Picked up this faucet on Amazon for $15. Seems decent quality, was a direct fit with my scamp 13, and has a removable aerator. All that is missing now is a seaflo accumulator tank to help with the water hammer caused by the low flow 1 gpm aerator that I added to the faucet.

New Faucet

Hello Dave,

We want to put one of those in our 2017 Scamp 13.

I assume at the very least the sink would have to be pulled out to install the faucet.

Can you provide some installation details?

Thank you.

Actually no, just take out the silverware drawer and reach in to unscrew the water line and then the faucet. Took att of 10 minutes.

Okay,

Maybe I missed something.

Recently I tried to remove the silverware drawer to file the lower edge of the opening to prevent the drawer from scraping.

I could not figure out how to remove the drawer. Even the info on the drawer slide manufacturer's web site did not help.

How does the drawer come out?

Thank You,
Tony

I wonder if one of these water saving devices will fit in it. I dont think these work with the faucet that came in my Scamp.

Gordon, the faucet accepts standard aerators so I'm pretty sure the devices you posted will work. I have an adjustable aerator .5/1.0/1.5 gpm that fits the facet, but the pump cycling makes it splash, it has many little high pressure streams. Once i put in the accumulator tank i'll see if it works better and report back.



TonyJanet, on my 2013 there is a screw in the rear of the drawer, one on each side, if you remove these screws the drawer will come all the way out.

Dave,

Just checked and our silverware drawer does not have the two screws you mentioned.

It's possible scamp went to a different drawer set up between 2013 and 2017.

Maybe somebody else will read this thread and give their input. If not I will post the question in a new thread.

Very possible, my drawer doesn't have drawer sliders, it just slides on a piece of wood, its one of the things that angers me in my camper. When you figure it out please take a few pictures of how scamp did the sliders, its on my to do list to put in real sliders.

On my 2015 with drawer mounted on rails under the stove I could remove the drawer by pushing in on the two black tabs on the rails and sliding the drawer out....

But the sink and faucet is also on the other side of the camper from the silverware drawer in my case, so YMMV.

The drawer sliders I've had experience with, you either had to pull the drawer out all the way and tilt the front up, or if you pull it out all the way see if you can see a little black lever in the slide itself, there would be one on each side, you would have to push them up or down at the same time to get the drawer to come out.

My pump also cycles quickly (hammers) when I try to get a low flow. I'm thinking that the water saver will allow me to have full or near full pressure but still allow me to get smaller amounts of water than I can when turning on the faucet high enough to stop the "pump hammer." Sort of like very quickly turning the OEM faucet from off to 3/4 on, then quickly off again.

Anyway I have the hot and cold faucet but no longer have hot water service, so I will take out the OEM two knob faucet today and see if it looks like this will work.

Gordon if you get a chance can you take a picture of how scamp mounted your drawer slides? Are they attached to the bottom of the stove or did they put in a piece of wood at the sides of the opening above the refrigerator?

Thanks

You are lucky.. my Scamp is sufficiently disassembled at present that I have a good view of the drawer.

The rails are mounted to a sheet of OSB which in turn is mounted to the underside of the stove. It looks like Scamp drilled four or so holes in the bottom of the stove housing and used square-drive screws to mount the OSB.

If one were to remove the stove completely, one would also have to remove the silverware drawer, or figure a different way to mount it.

Gordon thanks a bunch! I have the same piece of osb under my stove, except my drawer just has some aluminum c channel that actually slides on the osb itself, looks like it shouldn't be too much work to put in real sliders then.
