My tub faucet has been leaking. Then the hot water handle broke. It would turn the water on but would spin when I turned it off so that it would not shut off tight. I have been getting around it by keeping the water pump turned off, which I do anyway, but this time I would shut it off right away because water was steadily leaking out of the faucet.
I attempted to remove the plastic handle today and found out that the screw head was stripped. I took the cold water handle off just to make sure I knew what I was doing and then I drilled holes in the plastic handle on the hot water side all the way around the bad screw. Finally it cracked and came off. Then I could get at the screw with pliers and some lubricant and managed to get it out.
I looked up a replacement faucet on the Camping World website and it costs $40. The shower attachment costs extra. I found another RV parts store and they sell just the plastic handle for $11. The store was near where I was going anyway so I stopped by today. I think the place has closed. The hours said is would be open but there was no one around and all of the gates were locked. Oh well. Guess I have to go to expensive Camping World after all and hope they sell just the handles too.
I didn't have a chance to get the new faucet handle because I had a dog in the car. But I didn't put the screw back in to the cold water side so I can adjust both sides by taking the handle off and putting it on the other side. It works for now. Not a long term fix but at least I'm not losing gallons of water every time I turn the pump on.
