Shower/Tub Faucet

The faucet in the shower has the hand held shower with a diverter valve and the spout for filling the tub. The DW was attempting to take a shower to day and there was very little cold water coming out. I took the handle off but don't see anyway of rebuilding the valves in the handle. I removed the access panel on the wall behind the tub and checked the water flow, lots of water coming out of hose. So guessing either the cold water valve is bad and won't open all the way. It appears to be a 4 inch spread on the faucet connections. Will any faucet with 4 inch spread and hand held shower connection work? Man, it is one thing after another with this rig, am considering trading it in just to get away from all the problems...LOL

I've replaced the bathroom faucets on every Motorhome I've owned with a 4" bar faucets. The neck is higher and swings out if the way making it easier to use the small sink

Any faucet should work. Check the threads on the faucet to see if you need adapters to connect to the water lines in your RV. The good news is most RVs are using 1/2" threads to connect to the PEX tubing, and most newer faucets also have 1/2" threads, so you should be able to connect right up.

You're lucky you have access to the back. A lot of RVs don't. You are also lucky you have a faucet with 4" spacing. Ours is 6" and I had a heck of a time finding a replacement.

Any RV (trailer or MH) we've ever owned that had plastic faucets had them immediately replaced with brass. They were then repairable and looked much better. There was NEVER a problem with "threads" matching.....

Got up this morning, saying I can fix this damn thing. Looked up all the local RV parts places and was about to leave, when my neighbor said to try the local hardware store. He said they have a lot of RV stuff. So off I went, found exactly what I wanted, just the shower control no spout, 19.95 and with a couple of 1/2" threaded pvc plugs I was back to the RV in about 20 minutes. Took the access panel off, and turned the pump off and removed the connectors from the back and took the nuts off holding the faucet in place. Cleaned the area around where the old one was, installed the gasket and placed the new one on top of that, installed the tightening nuts and water lines, opened the valves to let the water run for a minute, turned it off checked for leaks(found none). Put the panel back in place and cleaned up. Took approximately 20 minutes to do the job. DW is happy and I am, too...

Cool! Sounds like you feel much better now and probably willing to keep it a while longer!
