Holiday Rambler 2006 shower plumbing leak

2006 HR Savoy LX leaking behind shower. Parked on land we own 2 hrs. away from home, so need to prepare for weekend work trip so I can buy what I need in advance. I'll take the shower knob panel out first to check the connection, but i think it might be a cracked pipe. Can anyone tell be exactly what type of pipe and what type of connector I'll need? I'd like to buy connectors and a section of pipe before I go. Also, in case I need to remove the whole shower, any advice or UTube videos or any other instructions for this for this model? Thanks in advance for any advice (!) - new to RVing, although it looks like that has to change quickly!

Donít know how old your unit is but it is probably pex pipe, 1/2Ē. Grab a couple of sharkbite fittings and a couple of feet of 1/2Ē pex. More than likely itís a connection to water valve thatís loose. If it leaks when you shower rechalk. On our 2019 I just pulled our unit completely out and redid everything. With that being said I have also been a plumber for 50 years. Good luck

Monaco/HR usually used a threaded adapter similar to this

No telling where the leak may be but I'd suggest looking on the back side of the shower for hidden access panel. Most of the rigs I've seen have this, in my case my shower is next to the kitchen counter which is in a slideout. I have a mirrored back splash and a couple of the mirror pieces can be removed to provide access to the back of the shower. This would allow me to disconnect the shower valve for removal.

I'd beat your rig has a similar setup.
Not sure on your shower but mine would be difficult to remove, this would be a last choice.



You might provide some pictures.

Assuming we're talking about a fresh water leak and not a drain water leak??

It appears your RV is a 5'ver. Is that correct? I googled your listed model.



If this is your floor plan, look behind the TV in the cabinets for an access. If no access, you could easily cut something out, directly behind the shower valve.

It might be as simple as a loose nut on the shower valve body.

Removing the shower is absolutely the LAST resort, IMO.

Monaco used some cheap rinky-dinky plastic fittings. I found 2 leaking, one was cracked and was screwed into the shower valve.
