wet bay valve / shower valve

I bought my DP the day before thanksgiving last year. Because it was winterized I wasn't able to test any of the plumbing functions. I stole it for $22k so I was willing to roll the dice since I have the ability to fix anything that I would find wrong. Today I got out the hose and hooked it up. it went great. there is only one thing. In the wet bay there is an outdoor shower valve and it is shot. so I started looking and they are all junk. everything I see is cheap plastic trash. Does anyone know of a company that makes a quality replacement? I'm not worried about what it looks like, I just want a good quality brass fixture so I don't have to ever worry about. Thanks guys

Not all plastic is junk. For as little as you use an outside shower, I'd go for a middle price range fixture.

You didn't provide a picture, so it's hard to know what you're talking about. Is it just an on/off valve or one of those bathroom looking faucets with a hot and cold. On my coach, I through away the faucet with hot and cold and replaced it with a brass valve on the hot side and one on the cold side. I can hook up a hose to either one.

We did the same thing. In fact we used washing machine water valves. Take up less room.

I replaced mine and went with this Valterra faucet and bought the coiled blue quick connect hose for it. Not “top shelf” but very happy with it.

If you are handy and don't care what it looks like build one out of ball valves nipples and fittings. Save a bundle.

Do not know a company that makes one out of brass but no reason you can't
Two right angle valves, a couple of nipples a T a nipple and a vacuum breaker and you got a brass one.
Or a Y instead of a T (More room to play)

That said. The cheap plastic one I have is 13 years old

Shawn....Here is a better picture. You can see the brass valves in the lower left corner. The best thing to do is to remove the old shower head assembly and get a feel for what individual valves will fit and what threads you have. The only down side is that you lose the shower assembly, as you can only hook to hot or cold.
