Sink faucet replacement

I need to replace the faucet in the kitchen sink of my Winnie. Is there anything that makes a faucet RV specific? Or can I just get a regular faucet from Home Depot?

Thanks,
Jeff

Though not a Winnie, I changed every faucet in my Excel 5th wheel TT with nicer quality stuff found at either Home Depot or Ace Hardware. (Don't remember which.) Same thing done on a much older previously owned unit. What you have should be the same.

Only mistake (Sort of) I made was swapping the shower faucet and head for a higher volume unit. If operating off of my holding tank(s), I can wipe out the fresh water tank much quicker while using the shower.

I replaced my kitchen faucet with one from Home Depot. Be careful to check the connection fittings. Some of the newer faucets have different connections then the ones for my rig so it limited the faucets I could use. Also the amount of space there was to work in made the job more difficult then doing it in a house.

Standard half inch fittings, Standard spacing, Standard, Standard, Standard, Standard Nothing at all unusual about RV faucets save for the shower. And even that one is questionable.

Replaced the on in our old FR fiver (kitchen) right off a HD shelf with no modifications.
I just replaced the (kitchen faucet) in our MH with one from HD. I did have to purchase slip on PEX valves to complete the instillation. Added to the cost but also gave us a way to shut off the water.
