Kitchen faucet repair

Hello All,
The central stem of my kitchen faucet is leaking from the base. Are there o-rings or washers that can be replaced which will fix this? I'm a newbie at fixing this stuff so forgive the rudimentary questions.

It is easier and better in the long run to just replace it with a residential faucet from any big box store.
One of the first things I do in an RV is replace all the OEM faucets with higher quality residential types.
Usually it is a direct replacement w/o any adapters or plumbing changes needed.

Hi,
In older rigs like mine ó2004 Georgetown ó it could become trickier. I had to redo some of the pex with sharkbite. Worked out in the end.

I was thinking that was probably the way I was going to go. I'll do some measuring and get one that fits.

With a 2017 most residential stuff will fit just fine. You will be happy with a better fixture.
