Leave well enough alone or make it right?

I'm debating if I should correct the hot and cold in one of my bathroom shower faucets. They were installed at the factory reversed, so when you turn the faucet to the hot side you get cold and vise versa. Is that just being too anal, or should I fix it? If I fix it I cannot just reverse the cartridge like many residential valves, this one cannot be reversed per the manufacturer.
I'm thinking I would have to change the pipes somewhere near the wet bay or jury rig a "crossover" closer to the faucet on the back side. I've attached a picture where you can see that the hot and cold lines are reversed.

I had a boat that was like that once.
I just swapped the labels on the handles.

From here it looks like the water lines just thread on to the valve, should be simple enough to swap them.

I would consider that a serious health risk as one could easily scald themselves. I'd be looking to have that remedied by the dealer and/or manufacturer under warranty.

To bad there’s not enough slack to switch them.

If it ain't broke fix it till it is.

Think I'd leave it alone.

Check to see if there is any "slack" in the incomming hot/cold pex lines.. if there is... I would just unscrew and swap left to right then re-tighten..

Possibly there's something that can't be see in the picture, but I would loosen the long screws in the picture that go through the valve body. This will loosen the body from the wall allowing you to unscrew the two nuts on the top of the pex hoses that screw onto the 90* elbows. switch the locations of the hoses and tighten everything up.

If no slack to allow for unscrewing lines and reversing you can go to the local hardware store and purchase a short flex hose like you use for sinks and stools and extend each line. You may also try a male to female couplet to extend hose enough to allow your to cross over. I bought one at Lowes.

Of course you're being to anal.....

Can you imagine a post similar to this on the Ford, Chevrolet or Dodge website?

When I push the gas pedal the brakes engage. When I push the brake pedal the car goes forward. Should I just leave it alone or try to fix it?

Or how about this:
When I turn on the radio the wipers come on. When I change channels the wiper speed changes.

I know, I know RV aren't regulated like autos, blah, blah, blah.

Here's the online RV owner boiler plate statement and acceptance speech...
All new rigs of all manufacturers will have some problems.......

We've read so many posts like this. This is a NEW RIG. It's just moronic to me that this type of basic stuff passes QC. Are there no quality control people at all on the assembly line to make sure even basic plumbing schematics are followed? Production mangers? Crew chiefs? Shift superintendents. Anyone? Hello?

Anybody out there........echo.....echo........

Take it back and MAKE THEM FIX IT.

AND THEN POST A REALLY NICE REVIEW ON THEIR WEBSITE ON HOW HAPPY YOU ARE WITH YOUR NEW PURCHASE.

OR NOT.

Hope you're not a traveling full timer. I don't think you want to take 3 months out of your schedule to get this fixed.

Unfortunately, no slack

No argument from me, it certainly should have been found and fixed before it left the factory.

If it's under warranty, which it apparently is, add it to the list of things you need fixed when you take it back, which you almost certainly will.
