Sink faucet

I want to replace my sink faucet. Is there a difference between RV faucets and standard faucets? I can't imagine there would be, but I've been wrong before ...

The sink in my CTS16FB is so small I can't easily wash plates or pans, but a sprayer end would let me get the water where I need it to be (bonus, less water waste). I also want a single lever instead of dual knob (quicker to get to desired temperature ... and quicker to turn off, again water saving!)

Thoughts? Experiences?

Only difference is the cost. Many of us swap out for household fixtures.

That was my initial thought ... now to actually go measure my sink so I know what I'm working with and watch for sales!

You may want to check the connections to the faucet. Mine are PEX and connect directly to the faucet! a "normal" faucet would not work.

And while there might as well add a couple of pex shut off valves. I added them to all my lines including the tub, just in case.
