Single lever pull out faucet leaks when spraying.

Is this a DIY fix? The water leaks from the bottom of the hand held sprayer fixture. Seems like it won't come apart to see if washer needs replacing.

Welcome to the forum.

We removed the hose from the spray fixture when doing the sanitizing to be sure debris wouldn't clog the fixture. It was very easy, a no-tools needed connection on our trailer (2015 JayFlight 27RLS).

If you include the year a model of your trailer, maybe someone on the forum might know about yours.

It's a 2011 eagle superlite 25rks. When turning on the the water the water leaks even without touching the spray button. We were able to detach the faucet from the hose but need to take faucet apart to get inside and are not sure how without damaging it.

From your original post, I thought you had a leak where the hose attached to the sprayer. I was wrong.

Hopefully, with the information you added someone else may be able to help.

I'm not sure this is helpful, but it seems like a real good time to toss that junky faucet and replace it with a midpriced residential unit. We not only got a better looking faucet, but our water pressure increased so that the sprayer actually has some punch to it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think we'll go that way.

I also put one in the bathroom sink that looped up and out, giving more room to rinse hands, and better looking. There wasn't enough clearance behind the shower wall for a residential system but I found a better RV one with brass. Just an idea.

Another thing to know. Those spray heads usually have two water passageways. One for spray and one for stream with stream usually being the default. When winterizing, a lot of folks (including dealers) turn on the faucet and wait for the pink stuff to come out. When it does they're done. However, since they don't push the spray button no antifreeze makes into the spray passage. Cold weather arrives, spray passage freezes causing hairline crack and tada - spray head now leaks forever more and can't be fixed.

Excellent information. Thank you.
