Outside shower

On our return trip from the South East, we stoped at Jackson Center to have some warranty work done. All were minor but it was a good exuse to see the factory. Amoung the items was the leak in the outside shower.

We did not check it before leaving. The problem persists.

It leaks from the housing when the valves are turned on. How is access gained to the back side? The knob come off easy enough. With the outer screws removed the housing does not want to come out.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Jay

On my 08 27FB, You will need to be somewhat of a flexible person to get to it. Open the closet, and you will see the rear of the closet has a "shelf" which is actually access to the plumbing backside there...(i.e. city water inlet, etc).

Kevin,
I looked behind the closet. The outside shower seemed to be behind the inside shower. I do not want to remove the inside shower. That seems to overwhelming.
Thanks

Hummm... Maybe they moved them in yours? The only way to get behind the shower on the aluminum side is to remove the bedroom wall. That's way easy. There are half a dozen or so screws on the edge of the wall that screw it to the wooden frame behind it. The screws heads are usually covered with a small round plastic cap that match the wall laminate color. Pop those off and unscrew the screws. Caution that the dometic controls and light switches are attached to the wall. You should be able to scoot the wall over to one side towards the hall and then access the area between your shower and the streetside wall. Look out for the sharp fiberglass!!!!
