Loose kitchen sink faucet

I know this sounds simple enough that even a caveman could do it, but there is a rub. There is no access to the faucets due to the sink and drawers under it. It backs up to the bathroom but there is no access plate to get to the faucets to tighten the nuts holding it down. Do I just cut an access hole or is there something simple I am overlooking. BTW, the trailer is a Tahoe 23 FB.

Thanks - Phil

Take out the drawers go to a Hardware store and pick up a Basin wrench. Keep in mind that it is possible that the steel washers rotted away ( due to the faucet not being properly sealed to the counter) but if UR lucky enough to have just loose Nuts just use the basin wrench to tighten them
Tip go to a Big box store and take a look at what the bottom of faucets look like cause U will be working by feel

I have to pull the drawers to get access to the back of my sink. Give that a shot.

I had thought about using a basin wrench but I don't think my arms are long enough to get back there and get it on the nut. I took out the drawers and it was a long reach for my short arms. I will give it a try with the basin wrench and see what happens.

The TT is new to us and I was in the process of de-winterizing it when I noticed the problem. Thanks for the suggestions.

Phil
