kitchen faucet leaks

Recently when camping in my Shamrock 19fd, I noticed a pin hole leak in the faucet spout. I figured I could replace the whole faucet from Lowes or HD. Anyone have any suggestions on size, and are the water fittings standard size. the camper is only a year old, and I think the pressure got to it, since it appears cheaply made. Thanks for the help. I forgot to mention it was the kitchen faucet.

There have been lots of people that have replaced the faucets with residential models, myself included. Just match the center to center dimensions (it'll be either 8" or 4") and the plumbing nuts will fit with no problem.

We changed ours out rather quickly. Easy job!

I've got a Roo 21DK and the nozzle on the kitchen faucet broke and flew off when the wife turned on the water. I'm looking at putting in a new unit, but it looks very cramped under the counter with the sink hanging down. Any easy way to get in there and change the faucet?

There's no easy way.....unless you are a contortionist child with Orangutan arms...*lol. It's best to lay on your back on top a pillow with a sink 'Basin wrench' to help loosen the plastic line nuts. I just replaced my lavatory faucet with a nice brass (oiled bronze) colored one from Nice $$ savings with fast delivery.

They make a number of different wrenches to get behind the sink. See here for some.

Thanks for the replies. I'm no stranger to changing faucets, but it appears to be more cramped under there then in a regular cabinet.

I just changed out our kitchen sink with one from Menards. The fittings were all the same. Mine was also a very tight fit but I managed. Took many attempts to get one of the fittings screwed in properly. Had to take several breaks as I was getting cramps but it eventually went one and I have a working kitchen sink with no leaks again. I even installed the sprayer.
