White Hawk Bath Faucet Upgrade

As you may know, the bathroom sink in the White Hawk (Model 24 RBS) has a faucet that is inadequate. Very hard to even wash your hands, as the faucet is too close to the sink bowls edge. Today, I upgraded the faucet to a residential style faucet that I picked up at my Home Center.

The price of the faucet was about $59. It is made for a 3-hole set-up, but since the sink stopper in this Jayco is not connected to the faucet...only 2-holes are necessary. (that's the way these Jayco's come)

Very simple upgrade, as you don't really even need any tools. All fittings are connected and tightened by hand.

Thanks! Keep meaning to do this. With all of your mods, maybe I should just bring my trailer down to Grand Forks ;-)

I spent today creating a laundry chute in the bedroom.

That new faucet is on my list of items to upgrade in my Whitehawk. Thanks for the nice picture and detail!

Thanks Netman. Are you Air Force/prior AF?

Prior AF from the 80's. Was one of the better things I ever did.

How did you connect the lines? You said everything was hand tightened [no tools] but the fittings on house faucets are different than in the TT.

I replaced both the shower head and bathroom sink faucet after our first trip. Took about 10 minutes total. Simple disconnect old and connect new. Like OP said, hand tight and it's finished. Plastic fittings on lines under sink have little ears for hand tightening. Just like the ones in my home.

Ok, finally did it! A little effort/patience required, due to a tight spot under the sink (there's a duct that was a pain to work around).

But the result was good... We had to get a brushed nickel one, to match the kitchen of course
