Kitchen Faucet Repair


Just got back from Afghanistan and I am getting STREAMER(1986 31'Sovereign) back on the road. However, while flushing the systems a leak surfaced at the neck of the Kitchen Faucet. I attempted to tighten the nut at the base of the water tube and cracked it in the process---crome plated plastic-- ugghh. I have been unsuccessful at the hartware store and the local RV Parts locations. Does anyone know where the hardware might be found to fix it.

Thank You HH

I noticed that many original kitchen faucets are not standard Moen, Delta, P-Fister, etc. so parts may be hard to find. Many good hardware stores and places like HD/Lowes carry replacement parts. Personally, unless you're really attached to it, the faucet is 22 years old. You can purchase a new, all metal, chrome plates brass, single lever for very few $$. I bought mine at HD, single lever with pull out sprayer. Eliminated the hand sprayer and ended up using the left over hole for a pump soap dispenser. It was on large display at HD, inexpensive, not a name brand, but looks/works great and doesn't get the use of a household faucet - not even 10%. So maybe after 15-20 years I'll have to replace it again - actually looking forward to it in 20 years.
