Help Needed with Dripping Faucets

Here's what my bathroom faucet assembly looks like from the top and bottom after I removed the handles and screws. It won't do anything else.

How do I stop this thing from leaking? Other websites suggest replacing the entire unit. Yes, or no?

Thanks.

If they are plastic, and I think they look like that, I would defiantly replace it with a good brass, metal one. If you buy at big box store, check and make sure that they are made of metal, a lot of them are again made of plastic.

I agree with Mark, but will also add.
We don't whether your unit is under warranty yet or not. It could be a warranty issue.
It would help all who answer if you would put the year,make,and model of your rig in your signature.

Another quick question. Looks like the hose to the sprayer for my black tank is also located in the tiny space beneath the sink. It appears to be too short because it is crimped (like outside hoses crimp themselves and cut off the water. Should I replace that piece of hose while I'm at it?


Thanks, again.

2015 Crossroads Longhorn Texas Edition 32-QB. It is under warranty, but I do not have a means to tow it into a dealership, and no Crossroads service centers exist within 800 miles of Grand Canyon (according to Crossroads Warranty), so I would have to pay for two service calls, IF a mobile repair service would even come up here (Grand Canyon east). If I could get it to a service center, we wouldn't have any place to live. So--trying to handle it myself.

I would definitely replace that POS with a better quality!! I replaced our kitchen faucet while still under warranty & sent a copy of the receipt to CR & they reimbursed me, not for labor of course, but better than waiting for a dealer or mobil tech.

While your at it, replace the black tank sprayer hose. We use our tank sprayer every time we dump.

Is there a independent RV service center,or dealer near where you are.??? CR will pay a independent to do the work, it doesn't have to be a CR dealer...All of my warranty work was done by independents as I do not have a CR dealer near me either...

Now what I need are SPECIFIC instructions on how to replace the faucet assembly. Do I have to remove the sink and cabinet in order to be able to reach the hoses? I can't possibly fit under the tiny space. It is 12" wide! Maybe I should sell the unit to some other unsuspecting person, and go back to my tent!!!

Hope fully you can reach up under the cabinet and remove the supply hoses from the faucet. It could look like this hose.
