Buy it from Home Depot/Lowes etc. The cheep junk faucets the manufacturers use are easily replaced with quality ones like American Standard, Delta and so on. All you will need do is to adapt the water source to the faucet. This is easily done with std. home fittings.

We've replaced all kitchen and bath faucets in previous trailers...."Adapting" was never required - they fit the existing plumbing
BTW, the stopper valve was easy to add as well. Much nicer than the old piece of plastic which was normally found somewhere in the floor after a bumpy trip

Just had my kitchen faucet replaced with one from Lowes or Home Depot (I don't remember which). Fit right in, no adaption necessary.

RV faucet

I recomend Delta. They are easy to repair, and everyone carries Delta parts. 50 years of experiance.

Just replaced both kithchen and bath faucets with nice Delta from Home Depot. Piece of cake. Take one out and put new one in. No adapting.

Take the old one out first and take it with you. There are different spaced holes, and different length inlets. I'm sure you can find a much better one.

I replaced the Kitchen, Bath and Shower faucets with Moen single knob fixtures, just about the best mod that I have made. I prefer to trade with my local privately owned plumbing shop, especially one that specializes in home repairs rather than new construction. They can supply just the required parts rather than buying a faucet ďkitĒ that has extra and un-needed parts, plus they can they can supply ďexpertĒ advice.
One thing about the single knob shower fixture- you will have to cut a new single mounting hole in-between the two existing mounting holes. The larger diameter escutcheon plate will cover both existing holes. However, be sure to measure twice (even measure 3-4 times) and cut once! Also it might be prudent to send your wife for something when cutting the hole, my wife was looking over my shoulder when I started and almost passed out when I cut a 2 inch hole into the side of the shower. A secondary benefit is that the shower water temperature is easier to control.
BTW- does anybody know about the 8 Pís? Count them-
Prior Proper Planning Prevents P**s Poor Performance
What? You say that is only 7 Pís!
OOPS! I forgot one- Perhaps!

Richard, we have moen posi temps in the stick house, and they are marvelous, I can flush the toilet while DW is showering in the same room and not hear a single scream.

Did u use a posi temp in the rv? and does it work with the typically very low volume of water due to the rv's small pipes?

I didnít use Moens Posi Temps, at this time I canít remember why not, maybe 8-10 years ago Moen didnít make them? However I would ask my local Plumbing Supply as to if they would work with the low RV water flow that you mentioned.
Good Luck and let us know if they will work. Maybe if I ever have to replace the Shower fixture I may upgrade to the Posi Temp. We have Moen Single Knob in our house for 25 years and havenít even had to replace one yet.

Thank Richard. With a moen single handle, how did you deal with the typical RV showerhead on a hose thing? or did you put in a fixed showerhead, or something else?

Any chance for a picture?

I put a shurflo extreme pump in mine just before putting her to bed for the winter, no chance to test it much yet. If I have some real pressure and flow now, I just might try a posi temp... The tough part of having a newer rig is I really gotta stretch to come up with projects....
