Leaking Shower Wand
Getting ready for first long trip of the season and checked all water outlets including the shower. And, it was leaking.
Original thought was it was leaking from BEHIND the hot/cold water mixing valve. Closer inspection revealed water was seeping out from where the shower hose connects to the mixing valve.
Cut water off, removed shower wane hose from the hot/cold mixing valve, put plumbers tape on threads of mixing valve, reassembled, cut water on. Leak was more pronounced. Tried attaching hose to valve from several angles, with and without plumbers tape, without success. Noticed that plastic washer inserted into end of shower hose was larger than the recess in the bottom of the mixing valve.
Previous owner did not use a lot of things in the RV (microwave was spotless, ditto fridge, exteroir shower, toilet). Guessing shower was one too and the defict went unnoticed.
Since it is a molded unit will be replacing entire shower assembly. Any recommendations as to a good unit?
