Faucet Replacement?

Hi There,

Dear Wife would like me to replace the kitchen faucet with a newer updated version faucet. Do I need to replace it with one specifically designed for MH's or can I use a normal house kitchen faucet in it's place?

Any Help or suggestions appreciated.

Regards
Stu

I've replaced mine with Moen's over the years. There's really no difference but you might need to get creative on the hookup.

I replaced mine with one from home depot, as stated the connections were not direct connect as it would be in the house, took a couple of trips to the hardware to get it right, but once I did, no issues.

Find one that you like at any store near you. Just make sure you have what you need to connect it to your RV. You may need extra pipes or elbows or other stuff.

Strange! Just replaced the bath faucet yesterday.
I removed the leaker, took it to hardware store, found one off-the-rack of same size and fittings.
Easy-peasy

Go to Home Depot, Lowe's or Menard's. Make sure you get a faucet that will fit the number of holes and the spacing of the holes on your sink. Many faucets are single hole, but they come with a deck plate you can use to cover additional existing holes if necessary.

Head down to your favorite hardware store and pick out the one that you like. A basin wrench will make the job easier.
