Perhaps I'm missing something here; however, I'm not a plumber but we replaced our kitchen faucet with a bar faucet we bought at Lowe's. Don't even know the brand name, but the holes matched up and it went in without a problem. Maybe we were just too dumb to know to worry about it. Been in for about 3 years without a problem. Could not change out the bathroom sink one without taking the whole sink and cabinet out, so just cleaned that one up and left it. Now when you get to changing out the toilet, let me know how that works for you. We replaced the one in our 76 Sovereign last week end but haven't turned on the water yet. I can't for the life of me see how this High Profile Thetford will not leak. Guess I'll know when Spring hits Oklahoma and I turn on the water.

Thanks for the input Dave and Juel. Juel, the question of fit is not regarding the Kitchen faucet, I look forward to putting a nice bar tap there. The tight fit comes into play for the shower valve but it seems there are a few products out there that will fit.
Tim

Found a current Moen, Model L82691, shower only that looks to fit just fine. $78 at lowes. Just went with a simple faucet for the Kitchen, although gonna have to cut two new holes. I can't believe those old Moens and Kohlers were soldered right into the fixture, no threaded adapter, argh.

Moen pressure bal.

If you don`t pressurize the system every 4-5 months and run water thru it,the floating balancer will stick and you won`t be able to get hot water.The new cartridge lists for $64.00.We have that problem with the Snow Bird`s places where they are gone up north for 6 months or longer.Preventive maintance is sometimes the cheapest way.Dave
