Most rv's should have some sort of access panel somewhere in the general area of the faucet, maybe to the side that you would have to reach in to get to the faucet.

Gotta love rvs. They don't put access panels where you can look in to see what you are doing, they put them where you can feel what you are doing. Having eyes on the tips of your fingers helps! :P

I recently changed out the shower controls on my '93 22' Winnie Warrior. It was inside though. I removed 4 screws that held on a cover plate, pulled out the hoses a little bit, with 2 channels lock pliers held one side of the connection then unscrewed the connections from the shower. Installation was the reverse except for using Teflon tape on the threads.

On our '89 Fleetwood Southwind, we had the choice of cutting a hole through the wall in the dinette and reaching in sideways, or cutting the fiberglass shower wall around the faucet itself.

We chose to cut the fiberglass and installed the faucet on a faux-marble panel, which we then epoxied to the shower wall. We put other faux-marble panels on the other 2 walls to make it match. It looks good, actually.

No access panels on our model. Bad design on Fleetwood's part

My '88 Itasca had a plate that the shower valve was mounted to on the outside wall. Very easy to change. I think this is the was the manufacturer installed it because the panel and screws with caps match the rest of the coach. I went from a valve with a fill for the tub and pull the valve up for the shower to one with just a shower hose and head. The valve kept kicking off when the pump would cycle. Real pain to shower bent over holding the valve up!
