Cekkk, we did the same thing in the bathroom as you did installing a new faucet. Nothing leaking, just wanted an upgrade. No problems with the kitchen faucet so far. I noticed we have the same strainer in the bathroom sink. We love the stock shower head in our Eagle, and as you said, having a 10 gallon water is very nice. Last summer, I tried to run it out of hot water and after 20 minutes and shriveling up like a prune, I gave up.
