Island kitchen faucet upgrade

Just upgraded from a corroded and plugged up OEM "Duro" 2 hole high arc spray faucet to new delta,

the hole in the countertop had to be opened up from 7/8" to 1 1/8" .used carbide tile cutter and a roto zip and a shop vac

Added 2 brass 1/2" ip to 3/8" adapters on pex stubs with permatex liqiud teflon for sealant

cut new supply lines to lenght tightened everything


reused old duro fixed spray nozzle hose counterweight as clearances would not effectivly utilize delta spray slider counterweight


new delta faucet has a magnetic ring on spray nozzle also so it stays on spray arm nicely too.

Added new soap dispenser in 2nd oversize handle hole ,very nice


removed old sink rim silicone recaulked rim nice

removed sink drain 1 1/2" pvc line and cleaned scum from lines : pu

found dreaded ice maker shut off valve and turned off. also dishwasher valve there also

pressured up and checked for leaks retightened pvc adapeter coupling behind spice rack also was not very tight from factory

what a nice little afternoon project completed

Do you have the dishwasher? I do & I did the same project, that was one helluva project for me as not nearly enough joints in my arms & couldn't see a thing, all done by feel.

Well I guess it's not just me...you solve one problem then another one surfaces. Just glad most of us are able to fix the issues ourselves. It's never boring!

The floor heater is designed to come on when the thermostat is set to electric if the heat pump cannot provide the heat but it will also go off once the heat pump can take care of the thermostat setting. When I first took delivery of my 31SL our heat pump would kick on and then shut off. I took it back to the dealer and they changed the thermostat and it has worked great since. Just a thought.

On one the other forums the guy has in his signature "the only thing that works on a rv is the owner", Oh how true that is.

When we replaced the OEM faucet, I removed the shelf so I could see what I was doing. I did reinstall it. How nice it would have been if the island had been made in such a way that you could remove the raised panel of the island and have access to the plumbing connections.
