shower control
« on: May 20, 2015, 10:29:48 PM »
The delta unit in the mid-cabin shower on my 44 WO is leaking. Who has replaced one and how?
Thanks,

Delta parts kits are available at most hardware stores. No need to replace the whole unit unless you are dealing with body corrosion.  Can't remember the model number but if you can find it I would start and the parts kits since they aren't expensive.

I replace mine with the shower control for a tub. The hot and cold work normally however the shower control either sends the water to the shower head or alternatively back into the tank. That way guests can warm up the water without pouring it down the drain.
I tried having a bad day once but I did not like it

Take the parts with you to Lowes, Home Depot or Ace - easier to match up that way. I am going to replace shower hose with cut off valve - will have to get at RV place or Defender has  a hose and valve assembly - Cheers - Peter
