'08 Seneca 35GS kitchen faucet replacement

Hello! While getting our coach ready for the season, I've discovered that the kitchen faucet is leaking quite a bit from under the on/off handle. Has anyone ever replaced this faucet? And if so, how and the heck do you access it underneath to remove and replace? It's got me totally stymied! Thanks for any advice.

A Basin wrench is a necessity! https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-Basin-Wrench/1002645186

Also being double jointed in the back, arms and shoulders is helpful!

Thanks, norty1. OMG... I laid on the floor, and had to mentally psych myself to prepare my body for the tight cornered space. And that only gave me partial view of where I had to get to.

I got access thru the door adjacent to the entry door. I think I used an open end wrench to loosen the nut that holds the faucet down.

Well... I found a nephew with long arms, a keen eye, and construction experience. With his help, installed a new Moen faucet. He also helped replace many of the water lines and connections under the sink with new hardware. On our 35GS, Super, we have no additional access door, other the the under sink cabinet. That access also has shelving and drain plumbing to maneuver around. I had no problem paying him handsomely. Let the camping season begin!!!!!

In later models the cabinets are put together using square drive pocket screws with no glue. I simply removed the screws and pulled out a few of the cabinet panels this provided me additional access to the area. I also do this when i need to access the areas under the headroom cabinets to work on wiring or plumbing issues in those areas as well. I had a cabinet drawer bracket pull off the wall and the only way to get into the area required removing several panels. This gave me enough room to crawl right in and install addition support and reinforce all the drawer slides. Not sure about the previous generation units but it might be an option in the future.

Having a young nimble person is even better.
