Does any one know the part number/model number of the Moen kitchen faucet used in the 2005 coaches?

I don't know the #'s you want, but the service parts will be available from HomeDepot, Lowes, hardware stores or the like. If it is leaking from under the handle, there is an adjustment to tighten the valve assembly under the handle.

I replaced my leaky kitchen faucet with a Grohe faucet, and have been happy ever since. The old faucet fit very nicely into the dumpster.

Dale,

Thanks for the post. It leaks under the sink when it is turned on at any position.

Dennis,

If it were me, I would just replace it with a better unit.

I replaced ours (2002 38FDDS) with a Moen Model 87316C (from Lowes) and it works great. Had a little difficulty getting under sink to perform the mechanics but that's like any other faucet I replaced. The old faucet leaked where the copper tubing was welded to the housing. The new model is not quite as high and it is all chrome compared to the white sprayer head on the old faucet. It was easier to replace then repair. The wife thinks she can get a replacement from Moen because the faucet has a life time warranty so I still have the old unit. I say forget it, I don't need to carry around junk in the coach. I know the Alpine has a lot of space and carrying capacity but junk is not acceptable in my bays.

In a first class kitchen like the Alpine's the original faucet is junk. My wife had me replace the old unit with a Hanse-Grohe unit from a local hardware store. Great unit and it only took about 1 hour to replace. Really adds to the luxury feeling of the coach

Had a leak on the hot water side of the kitchen faucet, replaced it with a Price Pfister Model 534-70SS from Lowes.

I've been wanting to change out our faucet, as it really is a pain to use...the extention portion doesn't set in to the base tightly enough and the regulator lever flops around so badly that it's difficult to control the temperature. It's good to know that there are good alternatives out there and that it is not a huge job to change it out.

Thanks for all of the suggestions!

Gail,

If you have the same faucet that we had, there is an allen screw that can be tightened to hold the handle tighter. Its under the little blue/red cap. In our case, it didn't stay tight, eventually working loose again. But it was tight for a while.

Due to corrosion, the old faucet was somewhat hard to get out. (Especially with the bad thumb I had at the time.) The new one was easy to put in. It had a different method of mounting that is easier to work with.

Hi Jim,

Yup, we tighted that screw, too, but it really didn't stay tight very long. So, rather than continually fighting with it, I'd just as soon replace it with one of those recommended here.

Don't tell him, but we'll probably bribe Dale to help John with this little chore...since John sometimes has 2 left thumbs.

I agree, replacing it is a better idea. That was my choice too, partly due to the loose handle and part due to a leak in the supply tube like RedHotSoup described. I never thought about bribing Dale. NOW you tell me!!
