2011 new horizon 5th wheel. Have had the trailer for 6 months and the shower head leaks when the water pump is on. It just stated on our last trip, also the mixing value leaks a tiny amount. Any ideas

Fortunately you can replace the mixing valve cartridge on the shower

That should fix both leaks

Basically.........

Turn water OFF...relieve pressure
Remove the 2 screws holding trim piece
Then unscrew the 'nut' /remove 'clip' etc (whatever is holding center cartridge in place)
Take to hardware store to match up

Some single handle cartridges need a special tool to remove usually available at hardware store. You my need to clean the bore with vinegar or a brush with lime away. A little soap to lube on install.
