I'll stick with what i've got for now but I definitely did spend a day kicking myself for drilling the 7/8" holes at 4" centers.


I sold the house where I had those installed, but in case you, or somebody could use it - those faucets come with Z-shaped nipples on the back, what gives pretty good adjustment.
From top of my head you can get them close to 4" OC, but you also need front space for it. The big covers hide Z nipples.
Sadly none of 100's google pictures shows the detail.
I would love to put them in my new house, but hate to tear nice tiles for it and in Vegas we have hot water coming from cold side most of the year anyway.

I still think you might be able to install one of those.
I installed few of them (with some model variations) in my house and also vanity-mounted thermostatic valve in my TC.
Love the convenient operation and water saving to top it.


Model DE-831

Nice job. Looks to me that the bathroom is going to be the most valuable part of the camper.
But why did you not install single level, or even thermostatic valve?


Great question. I drilled the holes 4" centers for the previous rinky dinky plastic valve that came with the camper. Then found out that they only make plastic valves except for one phoenix product and I didn't like the valve handles. That left me to either modify the hole dimensions or make a face plate etc. Instead I just found the shampoo sink valve made by central brass.

If I had premeditated this part of the project I would have designed for a nice thermostatic valve.

Can you embed videos in this? I have a link to a playlist of videos my wife created showing some other repairs we have made to the camper.
