'76 26' Shower Valve

I have lost my shower cartridge during my reno and wondered if anyone knows the model of the shower valve. I know they are moen but that's about it. Thanks for your help

Greg

Your best bet is to look through the catalogs of RV water fittings to find one that will work for you. There are a bunch of these catalogs online so you can see what they look like and what will fit into the space you have behind the shower. I found the biggest problem was connecting the water to the faucet because of the limited space behind the wall of the shower stall.

I did some digging, the model is "chateau", which isn't available anymore but moen still makes parts that fit. The cartridge is available at Home depot and the handle is too, the only thing I needed was the sleeve which is available from moen, part # 10066. Don't toss your shower valve unless it is damaged from freezing because you can rebuild it and save yourself a lot of work. As far as the space issue goes I soldered in some pex adapters and used 1/2" pex to connect it, worked really well
