This is the water faucet that was in the camper.
It is a hand pump style.

Posted Image


A hole is drilled in the corner of the counter for the faucet.

Posted Image


The faucet is them fastened in place.
The water spout rotates back against the wall so it's out of the way for lifting up the counter top.

Posted Image


With the counter top in the raised position, the spout can then rotate back out over the sink.
This then allows room for operating the pump handle.

Posted Image


This stainless mixing bowl is going to be used for the sink.
It has a rubber coating on the outside so it wont have any condensation forming on it.

Posted Image


The drain is a standard unit that is used in a bathroom sink.
Note the square holes in the side. These are for the overflow in a regular sink.
This sink will not have an overflow so I will have to block those holes.

Posted Image


I drilled a drain hole in the bottom of the bowl.
The area around this hole needs to be countersunk so the top of the drain doesn't sit above the surface of the bowl.
I set the bowl on a ring that is 1/4 inch larger than the diameter of the flange for the drain.
Then I used another ring that is just a little bigger than the drain flange and pressed it down into the bottom of the bowl.

Here is the finished countersink for the drain.

Posted Image


The hole for the sink is cut into the counter top.

Posted Image


The sink is fit into the hole and then it is glued in place.
I used a section of aluminum tube to cover the square holes in the sides of the drain.

Posted Image


The counter and sink are fastened in place.
The chrome knob at the upper right side of the sink is for opening and closing the drain.

Posted Image


Here it is with the drain closed.

Posted Image


The drain and the water line run to the front of the camper.
I used a brass drain tube going thru the camper wall.
It is glued right into the camper so it can't move.

Posted Image


Here are the drain and water line on the outside of the camper.

Posted Image


Now this is the interesting part. ...
With the camper mounted on the trailer, the water line and drain come out of the camper right in the area where the top 45 degree angled brace meets the upright for the gooseneck.

If I got every thing measured out right, the water line will come out in the clear spot just to the left of the upright and just above 45 degree brace.

The drain will come out in the triangle area below and to the left of the 45 degree brace and just above the horizontal cross brace.
