Replacement for old shower valve?

I wonder if anyone has found a modern single handle replacement for the ancient shower valve that has 2 separate handles for hot and cold? I haven't looked underneath the white cover yet but I'm hoping there is some kind of standard fittings under there.

Look for a Dura SF150 for a single handle version.

Dura is 1 of 2 manufacturers that I can think of for MoHo fixtures.

There is a Dura DF-SA150-CP that looks like it might work.

Does anyone know how to get behind the shower diverter to loosen the connections in order to remove it? I took out the 4 screws holding the white piece it's mounted on but there is hardly any slack in the water lines and it won't pull out!

Look on the other side of the wall the shower backs up to.

For ours, there was a cover plate inside a closet that allowed full access. There is also a screw-on access port below the fixture inside the shower, but being able to unscrew the fittings was darn near impossible.

There are no cover plates anywhere and the back of the shower is up against a closet on the other side in the kitchen/dining area but I can't see any way to get into it. I'm not sure what good a closet is that's just 4" deep but if I ripped it out then I'd have a big ugly mess.

I cut an access hole in the wall in back of the closet and the only thing I found there was another wall! Cut another access hole in that wall and finally was able to get into the shower fittings! There is absolutely no slack in the tubing and the fittings are tight up against the wall. It would be easy to cut into the tubing so be careful if you go in there.]

Keep an eye on all your fittings - it looks like you’ve got gray PEX - and gray was prone to springing leaks at the fittings.
Our ‘91 coach had been leaking for years and never repaired by prior owners. Granted, the culprit leaker was all but impossible to replace, but I got it done.
The guy we sold the coach to did a major repair to the coach, and the rot/rust was far worse than I had imagined (he got it all fixed up!).

It's not gray PEX but milky white PEX. Seems OK so far.

The new shower valve turned out pretty well and I replaced the old rusty screws with new chrome plated ones. I wonder why they don't just mount the valve assembly on the shower wall instead of using that white plastic standoff though?
