So I removed it and am looking for a replacement that will accept the shower wand. Any ideas?
Also, while I'm at it, I am thinking of replacing the toilet seal. If I pull the toilet, what are the chances I will be able to get a new seal for it? It's an original Aqua Magic.
Finding a faucet with the shower diverter isn't a particular problem as the basic 4" spread faucet with diverter is still a common RV part. The problem will be if you want a metal unit (I am guessing that Airstream may have still been using metal faucets in the '70s as my '78 Argosy had metal faucets). RV dealers (even my favorite Airstream dealer) don't typically stock anything but the plastic variety faucets - - they are evidently available, but seem to often be a special order item. Since they are often the product of companies in the household plumbing areas, a plumbing supply house may be able to order what is needed from one of their catalogs.
The Aqua Magic in my Overlander dates to the mid-1970s, and my Airstream dealer hasn't had any problems getting new seals in each of the instances when it has been taken out for repairs over the past nine years.
Good luck with your search for a replacement faucet unit!
