Where is the best place to get a new kitchen faucet for a 2015 R179?

RV faucets are close to junk. Get one you like at a non-RV place.

Is it a direct hookup, or will I need some extra fittings to make it work? I saw a faucet that looks like the original one in my R-pod that lasted only one season. It was $79. That is an expensive piece of junk! Still junk, though.

Unless you replace with your words "79$ junk"RV original,you May have to use "Fitting/flex hose" on your install,depends on the Selection you make at HD/Lowes! No 2 RV's are plumed the Same,a 1/4" longer piece of Pex can give a installer Fits! Youroo!!

We have the 179 too and I'm interested in this as well. Also a new shower hose, one that is more flexible. We're going to Camping World this weekend to se what we can find.

Replaced mine with stuff from Lowes. Much better now.

Looked at Camping World faucet's when mine went bad.... they have the same plastic junk that came with the camper. Go to a real hardware store and get a 'house' faucet that you like that will 'go' (look nice) with your unit......

Stay away from Camping World, unless you're buying better named items like a Honda Gen or so.
Like mentioned above Home Depot or Lowes have many styles and prices for faucets that work well in RVs. I've replaced the kitchen faucet in all my RVs and the bathroom sink faucet in our current one.
It's really just a plug n play job. Take the old one out. Then take off one of the hoses and take the hose along with you when looking. That way if you need a different hose you can find one that has matching ends.
Should be the same as your home style fittings.
