In all probability your outside shower valves are open.

Thanks midflalpinetec - there is no water leaking anywhere, seems that would happen if the outside shower were on....??? Anyone else have any suggestions? Remember we DO have hot water in the coach at kitchen and bathroom sinks.

Try checking the hot water pipe going to the shower valve. If I remember when you take the large plate off at the shower control you can reach/touch the hot water pipe. This would at least tell you if you have hot water to the shower valve.

IIWM, I'd rig a bushing on the shower head nipple to accept compressed air, set air regulator to 60psi, then give it a shot with the shower valve on hot only, kitchen sink open for hot only, and pump & city water off. That should clear (tho not necessarily remove) any restriction if that's the trouble.
