Default New problems, asking for help

Just had our first trip and most was good. Had two problems, one the cold water faucet leaks in the kitchen and the GFI keep tripping. Any suggestions for those problems? Other wise the trip was good and for an older trailer she seems in good over all shape.

Default Thoughts

Take the kitchen faucet apart and see if it is a washer that needs to be replaced. Plan B get a new faucet. Do a search online for a new one. Several forum members have replaced theirs. You might be able to use the same model. GFI replace with a new one. Not an electrician. Glad things went mostly good.

After I bought our 2005 27T I had problems with the water heater leaking and eventually with the cold water connection to the street supplied water. I discovered the pex water piping was contracting and expanding when the hot water was used. On advice from an RV repair shop, I changed connections, with adapters, to regular household supply lines from a hardware or big box store. Don't know about your GFI.

GFI's DO get weak, but you may have a faulty ground connection in that circuit too, which is what a GFI is there to protect against. If you check all the ground wires, they're bare copper in a house circuit, but I've never taken mine apart in the trailer so I don't know if they're the same, and they're secured properly at ALL connections, then try changing the CFI socket. It's not hard, just don't be connected to shore power when you do it. *grin*.

What are you plugging into the receptacle? It might be tripping the GFI. Try plugging different things to you trip the GFI. This may solve your problem.

New question following this thread, as for the kitchen sink problem, do you or anyone know if those connections can be got at like Home Depot or Lows?

I think you SHOULD be able to get those plumbing connections at HD or Lowes. There's nothing particularly unique about them. It would be best to take the ones you have in the trailer with you when you go shopping so that you can get something that will match. The employees there should be able to help you too.
