1983/84 pace arrow shower problems.....help

Hi, my water lines r cracked going to my shower taps... Problem is I don't know how to get at them... I dont see a trap door, there is just a wall there by my bed....
Boy the guys that built these weren't thinking at all... My drain lines for my water tank and waterlines is like 1/8 line... It took over 3 hrs to drain my water tank... Lol
I can see the lines through some drawer that r under the bed but no way to work on the lines... Am I going to have to cut a big hole in the wall??? Lol hang a picture there after?

I'm curious how you know they are cracked if you can't see them. ? They make access during construction for something's but not for too many systems. You might buy one if those small pencil size inspection cameras from Harbor Freight and drill a small hole and see if you can determine how to proceed . Good luck and keep us posted on how it goes.

We'll let see, water is shooting all over the place and it's dripping down right from those lines... That's how I know... Lol
The lines Will need to be replaced so I need a fairly large hole to crimp the new pex lines on...
That blows me away that Fleetwood never built these things to be worked on...

I wasn't implying you didn't know what you were doing, having more information about a problem here helps eveyone including the person looking for help. I too own a Fleetwood Motorhome and wanted to learn more. The Shark Bite fittings work really well, simple to install with just a push, once of course you can access the area. I found with screw on type fittings the Teflon Paste worked better than the Teflon tape after repeated leaks.I just had to replaced a faulty fresh water inlet and had to access under the left wheelwell by cutting a access hole to complete the replacement.

My shower also has no access to the area back of the control handles. I am going to have to remove all of my shower because of a leak in the drain pan. I will remove a complete sheet of paneling, seam to seam. I can re-cover seams when finished, and it should look like new. The panel is floor to ceiling, 33 inches wide. Maybe yours looks like that also?

Ya those sharkbites look like the way to go fer sure.
My shower is located right at very back of mh on drivers side. There is a bed right beside shower/bathroom.. Only way to access it is takewhole wall off or cut a hole from what i can see unless there is access through the spare tire area....
