Replacement kitchen tap

I am considering replacing the kitchen tap on my 2010 Adria Motorhome with a domestic mixer kitchen tap. I would like to know if anyone has done this and what problems if any I might have

Plumb a kitchen tap into your system and try it, you have nothing to lose. If there is enough pressure it will work.

Hi have a 2010 Adria had a problem with the taps ,pipe had popped out of the tap block so had to have tap out.the only problem I can see is the glass lid of the sink will the new tap and clear the lid as it opens had to be quite precise when putting it back so everything cleared.the pipe work is straight forward if you are mechanically minded.

Generally if it's in the worktop then yes, almost the same, tails to fit the existing tend to be different as they're for a domestic supply but are the same tap end so get proper ones from a a good caravan dealer or Ebay etc.

However if it's the ridiculous fold down one all is not lost either, the sink I got for the self build came with the folding tap but it leaked, so after a look at the prices I opted for a blanking plug and fitted a domestic tap instead, tap and stainless steel plug came to less than the bendy one and a damned site easier to fit.

Blanking plate, brushed looks better, even against the polished sink.
