No hot water in shower on 2005 Panther

Hello all, used the shower for the first time and noticed that there was no hot water. When I turn the handle all the way to the hot position no water comes out. If I turn it back slightly towards cold I get water but it isn't hot. I have the plumbing manifold turned on so I think the problem is at the shower valve. Any ideas? Has anyone run into this problem?
Also, on another note, where do you turn off the water for the ice maker? Forgot that there were ice cubes in the freezer and got a bunch of water on the floor.
Thanks,
Steve 2005 Panther

Are you getting hot water to the sinks ?
Could be the seal in the base of the insert is loose ; held in place by a center screw; that would explain the poor flow but not the cold water.
If you have an out door shower , check that the taps are off and that it's not just turned off at the shower head.
Do you have a single lever shower control ?
Should have asked that before the seal comment.
For my ice maker shut off , I had to remove kitchen drawers; it was well hidden.

I am getting hot water everywhere else. I have a feeling that the shower mixing valve may be clogged with calcium. Not sure how to access it without removing the shower. I think I will have to remove a false panel in e bathroom vanity to find the shut off valve for the ice maker.

You may find the ice maker shut off valve under the kitchen sink near the water filter. Thats where winnabago has it in my Journey. Hope this helps.

Can you post a picture of the shower valve , and maybe the other side of the wall it backs onto, could be a hidden panel for access.

I solved this one yesterday. Found out I have a Moen 63150 mixing valve. It has a balancing spool built into it with a valve inside the valve setup. The inner valve sticks according to Moen. I removed it and freed it up and now I have hot water!

On my coach the ice maker shut off is located via the exterior panel exposing the rear of the fridge. There is a valve with the tubing for the ice maker.

Thanks for posting that you have things fixed, and how you got it done.

Not a problem. I always post the end result so someone else doesn't have to start from scratch if they have the same problem.
