It's possible. The sink faucet is almost identical to a residential style sink. There should just be fittings on the backside you tighten.

A basin wrench will make the process easier but be careful not to over-tighten. It may be put together like a residential sink but it's all plastic.

If it still leaks you may just want to pull it out to replace it. Replacement o-rings and cartridges are out there but may be difficult to find.

Our Cruiser had a leak between the spout and the base. Remove the knurled ring - remove the spout and replace the o ring. It only leaked when the wife ran water.

We didn't have a leak, but we replaced ours with a residential faucet because the faucet that came with ours was so small you could hardly get your hands under it. The neck on our new one comes out higher and farther. We love it and we matched it to the towel bars.

If the leak is on top of the counter, and not dripping underneath, it sounds like you may have a bad cartridge. Most of the faucets used in these units are not very serviceable. You are better off to replace it with a faucet from your favorite home improvement store.
Can you tell specifically where the leak is coming from?

We have the exact same unit as you. Our kitchen sink did the same thing and started leaking onto the shelf and down to the floor below the cabinet. It was a very slow leak and was a loose supply line connection. Easy fix. Iíve since had 2 other plumbing issues. Same problem under the bathroom sink and a kinked hose on the black tank flush valve (in the water pump hidden compartment). I go around a few times a year and check all these connections. Any leaks that develop in fittings I change over to brass Pex. With all the road vibration these things see, these problems are bound to come. The Key these issues are:
1) check them often
2) find them fast
3) fix them for good.

So i should tighten the supply lines underneath the facet. When I feel those connections seem dry. The slight leak comes from faucet base and seeps on to bathroom counter in front.Thanks for the tips will check it out

Your sink has cartridges for valves..they're under the handle. There should be a cap over the top of the handle (if you have crystal knobs) that can be removed to expose a screw that can be removed to expose the cartridge. If you have levers look for a small set screw on the side that can be loosened and the handle removed.

Personally, I'd inspect but of one was bad I'd suspect the water would come from one side or the other.. it's pretty rare they would both be bad (assuming you have two different handles). If you just have one then it's more possible.

You can take a channel lock pliers and gently tighten the retaining nut on top.

Cartridges can technically be replaced but may prove difficult to find given the quality we are dealing with here.

If all else fails, I'd just replace the faucet. They are the exact same as most residential faucets you can find at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc..

If there are any parts needed for that class of faucet, you are far better off replacing the whole faucet. Any home improvement store would have one to fit, and much better quality.
