Where can I get a new cartridge for a Fontana Faucet?

My bathroom faucet is a causality of our latest freeze. Where can I get a replacement cartridge? I checked Fontana's web site- no luck. The cartridge appears to be manufactured by KCG with the following numbers printed on it:

G O B O
070817
NSF-61/9

After Googling, none of these appear to be part numbers.

Your dealer should be able to help you.

I love the "smile" in the lower right photo.

ITC Fontana faucet

Airforums comes through again! My 2010 Victorinox is original from hitch to bumper. When ITC told me the discontinued carrying parts for my lavy faucet when it was only 4 years old. Bad form. The prospect of a Home Depot faucet in my Airstream left me in a huge funk. Calls to my Ace store and pro plumbing suppliers gave no hope of an O ring exchange. Within minutes of reading this thread, an entirely new Kohler cartridge was on its way from Amazon. Only 13 bucks. Thanks!

Pauizor, are you speaking English? Your post gives me hope but I am reluctant to place an amazon order because your verbiage is confusing me lol. I have what appears to be the same cartridge and issue. My problem is, the faucet will not shut off all the way. The serial numbers appear on my cartridge sans the middle set.

What to do? And how did y'all open the cartridge up?

Someone please help.

Thank you,
Andy

It worked. Gonna order another to keep in the trailer for backup to the new one.

This forum is great. Special thank you to Paul for coaching me through my doubts.
