1991 Itasca shower
 
Where can I find the tape system for the shower in a 1991 Itasca 30 footer? The pipes between the two shut offs is cracked?

OK, 24 hours since you asked your question and no responses. Maybe others are as confused as I am about what you are asking. Please try again with your question, this time putting in enough information so that we know what you are asking. Hope this helps. :)

I have a 1991 Itasca motorhome that has a shower in it. The shower has a set of plastic taps with a pipe between them that feeds the black line to the hand shower unit. It is like a Tee pipe. The pipe is cracked and leaks. It does not look like an easy job to remove the face plate around the tapes to get to the existing water pipes to change the whole unit. I do not like the idea of cutting the wall in the bedroom to get to the pipes and besides, the pipe is most likely an older pipe of a different size than what is made today.
It would be nice to just have a part number.

If your rig is anything like mine, it is VERY easy to pull the entire wall panel back to gain access to the shower plumbing. There isn't much other than a few staples securing the panel to the wall.

I would presume the plumbing fixtures are standard on 4" centers.

I think I might be picturing your issue but also I think we are all still confused about the "tapes". If you mean the faucet handles or "taps" that makes more sense.

Is this what you are talking about?

If so it is EZ to replace. Pop off the center caps on the handles. Remove screws and the handles. Then the big retention nuts and the cover comes off. There should be enough free slack in the pipes to pull the faucet out and unscrew the fittings. Fittings are very standardized and old will fit new.
If this is NOT what you are referring to then I do not have a clue.
