Almost 50 hits and no suggestions?? I have been tinkering recently with my kitchen faucet in the TT (see Kitchen faucet aerator post in Tech Talk forum). And here are my observations: As far as I can tell, the faucet is pretty much the same as in your home. I didn't remove mine from the trailer to measure the centerline distance on the supplies but the giant plastic wing nut thingys that hold the faucet to the sink are the same as in the house. It also appears that the tapered supply lines and nuts are also the same. The washerless cartridges for the hot and cold sides are the same. The aerators and associated threads are the same. The only special tools you might need are the same special tools you'd need at home so you probably already have them...a faucet wrench with the swivelly hooked finger on the end.

Sorry, I see this question asked so many times on other forums, I thought it was pretty common knowledge. No difference in the rv and residential job, with the exception that it may be a little harder to get your body in there to lay on your back and reach up.

Also the faucet may be closer together on the centerline. I think they are getting away from those and using the more conventional home type faucets though.

I replaced the faucet in my old Wildwood with a home faucet.
