Does it have to be RV faucets?

I didn't get the winterization done on my Cherokee last year and am slowly paying the price this summer. Do I have to use RV faucets or can I use residential faucets in my trailer? Its a 28A+, 2007. I have learned my lesson, boo hoo hoo boo.. LOL

I replace my RV sink faucet with a good quality residential faucet purchased at Canadian Tire. The RV faucet leaked upon delivery of my fiver. Replaced it out and sent the bill to my dealer and was fully reimbursed.

Measure the approx center to center on 2 handle faucets also a hint-- on your
bathroom sink you should also measure the faucet handle center to end of spout.
Those spouts vary and my sink is kinda small so I needed to pay attention there.
Single lever or 2 handle will work in the kitchen.

After that you can go to any home center like Home Depot or Lowes or hardware store,
dept store etc.
We've changed both kitchen and bath sink faucets with some from Home Debit....

Good Luck!

I replaced mine with a nice set from WalMart, took about 10 minutes to change it out! Much nicer as far a construction too.

I replaced both the kitchen and bathroom with good quaility ones from Homedepot. I'm sure they use more water so be careful when dry camping.
