Cheap Camper Faucet and Pump Replacement – Winterize FAIL
Running a little behind on videos. This have been crazy like it has for most people. We were supposed to go to SE Asia for the month of April but everything got sidelined because of CoVid, Six months of planning out the window.
So I started off making a video about how easy it is to start things up after winter keeping it simple. We I must have not run the pump to get all the water out and when I put the water back in there were likes everywhere.
So I tried to get the faucet with the pull down out but could not get off one of the nuts so I ended up ripping a line to get it out. So I had to look for a replacement and did not want to spend a lot of money on another pull down.
So I found this KEZ faucet for a little over $21 prices will vary. I would call this a wet bar faucet. The flow is 2.2 GPM. That is less than out other and I like that more. It cuts down on water usage.

I also had to get a new pump as the other was frozen up and would not work. So I found this $21 pump and like it much better than the last one. This one is only 3 amps and the other was 5amp.
