Anyone know of a good RV repair place in the Richmond, VA area? I need to have a faucet replaced on my kitchen sink.

My experience is that small independent RV repair places do better work than the big dealerships.

JohnW, I'm down in the Smithfield Area, (South of the James). I have used "Dixie RV" in Newport News, but I won't recommend them.
Tidewater Express in Hampton is good, but they do heavier repairs.
For a faucet I think I would try the local "handyman" I've done my own and they are just like the home faucet.

Good Luck and Best regards, Clyde

JohnW, If the only issue you have is the faucet, I would agree with Clyde and call a local plumber or handyman.

There is nothing unique about a faucet in an RV - get a local handyman if you can't do it yourself.

In Richmond, I don't got to the standard RV fix it places anymore. For the coach service issues, a guy I use actually comes to my rig. Very professional...has many years of experience working for RV dealers in their service department.

If you can replace a faucet in your house, you can do it in your RV...same stuff involved...you will pay $60 to have someone install a $100 faucet at an RV shop. Go to Lowe's and see what they would charge to install it if you can't do it yourself. between the faucet and the installation, you'll save $60 - $100 easily.

To everyone who told me to replace the faucet myself... that didn't help at all.

To the one person who recommended a place in Richmond... Thanks!
