I just got back from the dealer where they replaced our leaking kitchen faucet. The new one leaked even worse than the old until we switched out the cartridge with the old one. Thought we had it fixed as we tested it at the dealer, but when I got home and connected to city water it leaks again around the bottom where it meets the countertop just like the old one. (The new one leaked around the handle until we switched out the cartridge.) It took 2 hours to see the leak. I do have a pressure reducer on the hose and other than storing the kitchen sponge where it leaks I don't know what to do. Should there be plumber's putty between the faucet and counter?
I have a similar issue with my kitchen faucet. When I got to the campground yesterday I hooked up the water. No problem. This morning I realized I had not turned on the hot water heater. I turned it on and continued drinking my coffee and watching the morning news. When I got up to get me a second cup of coffee, I had water all around the sink. It was coming out around the faucet where it meets the counter. I turned on the hot water and the leaking almost completely stopped. Now it is not leaking at all. Anybody have any ideas?
I saw a couple of Vegas owners complaining about the kitchen sink leaking at the counter. I’m having the ame issue, and am wondering if anyone found a solution (hopefully something other than “have the dealer fix it,” since mine is way out of warranty. Any advice is appreciated.
Just like the bad batch of vinyl plagued many back in 2016 and 2017 and lucky me way back in 2012 on a house couch, there just might be a bad batch of faucets out there. Just one bad day on the build line will fill a sea container. If Thor buys just one sea container a year....
I'd suggest, and so many here hate when I suggest this:
Go buy a quality piece with a lifetime warranty.
Replace it once and be done.
(someone on the forum put a touch faucet in their Vegas. While those faucets have a timer, I think brushing up against it as you leave the rv would be a great way to move water from the holding tank to the gray tank for 10 minutes)
I would guess as many here will guess also:
Some hamfists are gorilla tightening something that needs a medium half twist causing a crush where a squeeze should be.
