How to Repair a RV Tub Faucet


A private shower or bathtub is one of the many perks associated with owning an RV. With rough travel or age, however, tub faucets can start to leak. Leaks can occur in the water inlet and the drain portions of sinks, showers and bathtubs in RVs. Save yourself a headache and help your water last longer with an easy fix.

Things You'll Need

  • Basin wrench
  • Turn off the water supply.

  • Open the hot and cold faucets.

  • Disconnect the water supply lines. You may need a basin wrench to reach these nuts.

  • Remove the existing faucet by unscrewing the winged plastic hold-down nuts.

  • Insert the new faucets and install the wing nuts. Make sure to only hand tighten so the wings do not break.

  • Replace the water line supply nuts and turn the water back on.
