I had a leaky faucet and i needed to change out.
To reach it I had to dismantle the shelves and storage under the sink,
Sawing, drilling and demolition tools were required.
After laying down 4 layers of throw rugs for padding I inserted my too big body in the cabinet.
After sweating, cursing and grunting I was able to get the old faucet out.
Made a trip to Lowes for parts, new faucet, pex style shutoff and misc clips and clamps.
Back under the cramped space under the sink I got everything installed.
The moment of truth was when everything was turned on.
It worked! Eureka! No leaks!
This was the first time I have ever done a plumbing repair job with only one trip to the hardware store.
I took the rest of the day off to celebrate.

No way, that's almost superhuman to only make one trip to the hardware store. [emoticon]

We had replaced our home kitchen faucet a number of years ago. The old faucet was a nice, chrome, pull out handle, faucet so I didn't want to throw it away. Last winter when the trailer was winterized I checked and everything seemed to line up and wouldn't look to big in the trailer, so I removed the old and put in the newer... Just made sure when I de-winterized in the spring I checked for leaks and such. Was a super easy job, lots of access and space underneath. I guess it depends on the trailer, etc. But easiest plumbing job I have ever done.

I agree, there is something wrong here. It takes more that one trip and a visit to every hardware store in town, and even then you have to substitute parts for what you really wanted. My advice, buy a lottery ticket right now!

WOW plumbng repairs are supposed to require at least 3 trips to the store. I think mine took two.

I installed this 15" Bar Faucet in the kitchen
3 weeks ago June 6th
One trip to home depot to get some hose line adapters to fit the new smaller faucet lines to the existing pex lines

Now it's easy to " go soak my head "

The old one leaked water all over the counter every time it was turned on,
