I wonder what a RV repair tech or plumber would have charged ?


$500
Show up late, take long lunch and leave early, when you call you get voice mail. If you ask any questions the "tech" (term loosely used) will make a parts run and not return until the next day leaving everything unusable overnight. [emoticon]

Wish I could have changed the RV sink faucet without the wrench. Arms weren’t long enough and it was too tight.

Yup ! Here I am snow birding for the next four months and have 90 percent of the tools I need with me.
Naturally the other day when I needed my multi meter it dawned on me I left it with my other electrical tester on my work bench where I had intended to pack it,
So I just ordered a el-cheapo one on Amazon that I'll leave here

Uh Huh, just wait until it is your RV bathtub faucet and it is mounted on a wall with no access on the back side. Won't be so easy then. Been there, done that.

I ended up standing in the tub and cutting a whole in the wall above the faucet. Then I could reach down to remove the lines and the nuts holding it in.

I haven't had to get at mine, but there are just four screws holding the faucet unit to the shower stall and I am guessing with them removed and the faucet handles removed I can gain access to the pipes

Lucky if true. Mine wasn't built that way I wish it had been.

Uh-huh. I cut a hole and put in a marine access hatch. Still a pain to connect new faucet.
The neighbors call me the hardware store on the mountain. Odds are, I’ll have what they need, but when I need something...
