I have a 2014 24' Airstream Interstate. The kitchen sink has a glass top on a hinge. To use the faucet, you pull up the glass top, pull up the folding faucet and turn on the water. However, the plastic nut which holds the faucet stem to the 90 degree valve cracked and broke. Airstream does not sell the plastic nut alone. You must buy the whole faucet for close to $200. The nut is a plastic and it's the only broken piece. If anyone knows where to get a replacement nut as shown in the pic please advise. Thanks

I would take the broken retaining nut and head for your local hardware store. Since there are various sizes and thread pitches used in plumbing fittings, I’d think you should be able to find something workable there.

Here’s a link to a WAG that might possibly work, but will depend on your spout size and thread.


I have used T&S Brass products and they are top notch.

Look for RV salvage yards and try them. Airstream has a huge owners org, reach out to them.
