Broken shower handle

We have a broken shower handle on our 2004 Phaeton. Attached are pictures and we need help in identifying the brand/manufacturer. We thought it was a Danze, but after contacting them and doing research they say it is not theirs. I have no paperwork for any of the bath fixtures and only a small brochure about the kitchen sink which is a Danze. If any one has replaced their single handle shower faucet please email me. The handle hole snapped and will not stay in place, can only use it to turn to hot or cold type settings. I have contacted Tiffin parts and McKinney and have not gotten any response from any one as of yet. Being an older RV I can find nothing on the internet, Home Depot or other places that match up to this fixture.
Thanks

riata2,

We have the same faucet in our Allegro Bay. Call Tiffin parts dept 256-356-0261 ex 5. Have your VIN handy. They should have a replacement, but you probably won't be able to get just the handle. Looks like the finish on yours is shot anyway.

FWIW, the finish on our shower faucet is going bad, too, and I'm looking to replace the faucet with one from Delta. They make one with an oval-shaped plate that should be wide enough to cover the 2 holes for the water pipes, and it also has separate temperature and volume controls. The model is the Carlisle available in stainless steel finish that looks similar to brushed nickel. This faucet will require some plumbing skill to adapt it to work with a hand-held shower in an RV.

I've seen that red/blue button before, Delta or Kohler? I would go to Home Depot , or similar type store and buy new residential unit, most are standard dimensions. Don't know about outlet position.

I agree on the homecenter idea that is a standard handle

If all else fails, that is a standard 4" shower faucet. We just replaced our kitchen and bath faucets with non-stock non-RV brands. Much better quality and looks.

The answer to your problem is obvious ...

or you could try RV salvage yards.

The spacing of the pipes on the shower faucet used by Tiffin back then is 6".

It looks like it attaches to a square rod with a set screw. You could probably find another handle like that easily enough for a temporary fix.
