sinks and drains
« on: January 05, 2011, 02:42:04 pm »
You've probably figured by now I can be pesky!!!!!! Been on other forums and finding much info. Gotta say this has been the best yet. How do the sinks drain. Have seen some that the drain is a tad bit higher then the sink. What kind of material and do y'all like them? Are the faucets of good quality?   billy

Not sure exactly what you're asking about the sink drains, but both my kitchen, bath and shower drains work perfectly and quickly.  The faucets are good quality for standard rv fixtures.  I've replaced the kitchen and bathroom sink faucets with brushed nickel fixtures from Home Depot just because I like the look better.  I also replaced the shower head with an upgrade from Camping World.  They're all easy to replace - kitchen fixture took a little longer to get the old one out-just be patient.

Our drains work good, no problem. What I am asking is there any water left in the sink? The drain hole in our kitchen is just a tad hight then the bottom of the sink. billy

Everything drains out in our 2551 kitchen, bathroom and shower drains (unless we are really off level!)

When we bought our 2007 2350 new, Phoenix USA was installing those cheap white plastic faucets in the bathroom, shower, and outdoor shower.  The kitchen faucet is better quality but is nothing fancy to the eye.

I have noticed, the past couple years, Phoenix has been installing better looking faucets of which I assume they are better quality.

I replaced our bath faucet with something nice for us seen below, but kept all other fixtures.  Replacing the bath faucet is very easy, requiring no tools.  Hand loosen, hand tighten.  All fittings have wings for better gripping to hand tighten.

The drains are the lowest point in all our sinks and shower pan so they drain completelty, unless the RV is not level.

Come to think of it, maybe ours is too.  Just a tiny little bit, but yes, there is a very shallow puddling of water left in the sink.  It may simply be that the RV needs to be so perfectly level.  I never gave it a thought.  Now I will have to pay closer attention.
