Guess it depends on the location... I have had better luck finding someone to help load the truck at HD. They also gave me a contractor discount when I was buying all the materials to build my shop without asking. I usually don't ask them "how to" though. Neither seem to be up to that challenge and the internet is usually a better knowledge base.

Last week I was buying the drawer slides for the hide-away door (hinged and pocket?) and asked where they were. The guy took me there then proceeded to ask what I was doing. I explained it to him with the slides in hand. He then said it wasn't possible and started to take them from me?!? I asked him if he had a better solution and he didn't but he really wanted to get the slides out of my hands for some reason HAHA. I bought them and they are now installed and working perfectly.

Choose a brand that will give you fixtures for the kitchen and bath areas. That way they have the commonality of parts in the future. I would stay with the Moen brand IMO.

I recently have had bad experiences with Price Pfister so I would stay away from them. When I redid our home bathroom, I bought PP fixtures because they worked for that room and style and I had a good experience with a PP kitchen faucet I bought more than 10 years ago. The shower pressure compensating cartridge has never worked right and it wasn't too hard to get a replacement the first time (they wanted me to pay shipping, but I refused), but I've been trying to get a second replacement for 5 months. The valve is very hard to turn; the first one would suddenly blast us with scalding water. They keep sending me the wrong cartridge.

PP was bought several years ago by Black & Decker and they've cheapened the brand substantially. Just a warning.

I'd stick with Moen.

Some of the Moen faucets are only made for HD & lowes,their part #`s don`t even show up in my wholesale books,they look externally the same ,but take different parts to repair.They are what you call disposable faucets,if they leak,throw them away.
If you are going to buy faucets from the box stores,at least get Kohler. If you can afford an AS,you should at least put a decent faucet in it. Dave

Dave, I bought the Price Pfister fixtures from eFaucet. Do they sell cheaper versions of the brands too?

I wonder if Airstream buys the cheap version of Moen fixtures? The sprayer in our kitchen is made of junk metal and plastic.

My 34 footer had a 20 year old Delta that was leaking and looked pretty sad. I spent the $90 and got a really sharp Moen on sale at Lowes. Been happy with it for the past two years. I'll let you know in another 20 how it's doing

I removed my bathroom faucet (plastic - lightweight but cracked), walked into HD, handed it to the plumbing guy and said "I need the same thing, preferably in a single handle". 1.5 minutes later was headed for self checkout with a Moen that fit perfectly and my existing lines screwed right up tight. The only difference is that the Moen came ready rigged to run a sink drain (which I don't have -- I have a high tech device called a "stopper").

While we are on the subject of faucets...what have any of you done when replacing the galley sink? Most of the sinks I've seen at Lowes or HD are to big. Any suggestions. We are replacing the countertop and doing the sink and faucets at the same time.

I think PP faucets are junk no matter where you get them. Dave

I got mine from Ebay using the search "RV Sink" It's deeper then most RV sinks and a double, This is what my wife told me I wanted.

Moen faucets are IMHO excellent and the way to go - I guess that is why Airstream went to them. However, not all Moen faucets are guaranteed for life - you need to check with Moen. The hose on my 1994 Moen faucet needed replacement. I tried hoses from Home Depot, Canadian Tire and even Lowes while in the US, but all of those still leaked.
After several emails with Moen Canada I learned my model 7345 called the Riser was discontinued back in 1995 but luckily the hose was still available at about $28. They said it was not under a life-time warranty. To ensure it was the right one I drove to Moen in Oakville, Ontario and talked with their staff. They were superb gave me extra washers and a valve stem plus reduced the price to $19. Installed the hose right there and everything worked just fine.
