Kitchen Faucet Stripped

I have a 2013 Sabre 5th wheel and had the kitchen faucet handle break off. The threads inside are stripped so it won't go back in. Anyone have this issue and how did you fix it? I'm wondering if I have to buy a new faucet or if there is some way I can fix it.

Apparently, all RV kitchen faucets are junk.........plastic painted a chrome color. I replaced mine in the first 3 months.

Just replace it with whatever you want. Buy a good one and throw that one away.

I agree with the others just replace it, I had to replace a sink drain after I dropped a pot, the plastic snapped like a twig so I replaces both with metal.

When the faucet goes I will replace it with one made of metal.

Replace it. I tried to take our bathroom sink tap apart. It's plastic junk.i got a new tap at Lowes. We will do the same with the kitchen tap when it fails. At least the bathroom one was a nice easy change with screw on fittings on the end of the plex plumbing. It bothers me that this stuff is so cheap and my tap failed one month after the warranty. Oh well the warranty would have replaced it with another cheap plastic one.
