Need to replace kitchen faucet.

I have a 73 land yatch. 20 feet in length.How do I replace the kitchen faucet? Do I have to remove sink to get to the faucet? If so how do you remove sink?

Replacing a kitchen faucet in these trailers is pretty much like replacing any kitchen faucet, only the working space in these RVs is considerably smaller than in a home. If you’ve done it before, there you go, if not, Search YouTube.

Depending on your particular coach, gaining access to the underside of the sink may be challenging. If the nuts are rusty, if your lines are copper, pex or some jury-rigged hose will also impact how easy it is. If it gets too complex, you can always pay a plumber, but most DIYers can do it.

Replace kitchen faucet

Iím trying to do the same thing, replace the faucet. In the meanwhile Iíve turned off the stop valves and the leak stops!

We have a 16í Bambi and I thought about removing the sink to get to the faucet. Mine is held down with at least 3 screws (probably 4) with tabs overlapping the counter.

Havenít tried yet, but will let you know.

There are special wrenches to get to the fittings without removing the sink.

Two common styles:

I replaced my faucet last month. I took the sink out, which took less than 5 minutes in my trailer.

Replace faucet

Weíll, on mine, removing the sink was more challenging than the faucet; so I didnít.

The old faucet had 3 screws tapped into the retaining ring at 120 degrees apart. May have been able to use the faucet wrench but was too tight. Taking out the 3 screws and I could spin the retaining ring by hand.
