Changing it out will be a more satisfying fix. Just go to the local big box hardware store and get what you need. I changed mine out last spring with an all metal Moen, also installing shut off valves for about $125.

I had the same problem this spring. Mine would leak water at the base where the faucet would pivot. It was also becoming more difficult to move.

It was a bear to take apart as it was corroded with lime deposits etc etc. Once I did get it apart I found that it being 10 years old parts we not available.

So I bit the bullet and got a new one at Home Depot. Nice shiny chrome with spray head cost about $70. Installation was straight forward but I did have to buy a couple transition fittings.

DW is happy. As the old saying goes Happy Wife, Happy Life.

Best to go ahead and replace the faucet

Biggest problem with water systems on the road is that we never get the same water quality all the time. Sometimes water is soft, and next time it is hard. The mineral build up reduces the life of the unit, whether it is a faucet, an ice maker, or a shower head.
It's the reason I use a water softener everywhere I go.

Any fix you might find is probably only temporary. I would replace it and only need to fix it one time.

That is what I did last year, only mine is "biscuit" color plastic. Best part, Moen is guaranteed for life.
