Little projects sometimes bring the biggest rewards. That is the case with our new faucet in the galley.
So I purchased a plastic gutter and fashioned a custom “slide” for the counterweight to slide up and down. With its new “slide” the counterweight moves up and down free from all the obstructions in the vicinity. The slide is about 15 degrees off of plumb. But as you can see in this in the video below, it works!
This represents a huge improvement to our daily living routine! The Admiral gives the Captain a star for the day! <grin>
Honestly, we both do more than our share of work at this station in the galley! Admittedly, she does most of the cooking. But I think we do a commendable job of ensuring the clean up chores are shared.
The new faucet started leaking & dripping on the countertop. (4x Time lapse below). We ordered warrantee parts from Moen. They were taking a LONG time to arrive. After a week of dripping, it miraculously stopped!
Happy campers once again. Parts finally arrived, and will be stored in case they are needed in the future.
