Do the faucets use rubber o rings like in some home faucets? i have a 99 Dutchmen Classic and both the sink and the showers faucets like considerably when completely shut off. Bought the trailer used so they make have dried out from lack of use if it is rubber. I started to take them apart and noticed that the valves are plastic. Just haven't taken them out yet.
Thanks

Joe,
We replaced our faucet and shower with Phoenix brand faucets from Camping World. They are all brass fittings. The plastic ones just don't hold up and will leak over time. It was an easy fix and for about $50.00 for both sets. We used the higher neck for the kitchen. Just make sure it will clear when your galley is down.

Thanks Mary. Has anyone tried using any home faucets, if that is possible?
