Leaky Shower

Had my 2004 19' CCD out this past weekend for her first trip this year. I noticed a continuous leak from the shower. I check several times to make sure I had the water in the off position. I had to turn the outside water source off and turn it back on when I wanted to use the water. It did not do this last year. Any thoughts to fixes for this?

Did it freeze?

You don't say where the trailer spent the winter, but I would suspect that trapped water might have frozen in the shower valves. The shower is one of the harder places to get all of the water out when winterizing. I lay my shower head down by the drain and blast the water out with compressed air.

The trailer spent the winter in Georgia and it got below freezing a few times so I suspect your right in your analysis. Now that I have this problem what should I do? replace the whole valve handle(where the water turns on and off)?

The answer to the question would be based on the extent of the damage.

if it is a Moen single handle faucet you could try to just replace the cartridge. I had this work for me on a trailer shower. If the cartridge does not fix it then you are in for a change out of the shower mixer.

By pulling the cartridge you also can verify that the leak is not being caused by debris in the cartridge. There are 4-6 o-rings on a Moen cartridge so it could be any of them.

BTW do you know what the water pressure was in this park? Does it leak while you are using the pump?

Not sure what the water pressure was at the park but I did have one of those Brass regulators between the hose and the camper. I will check it at the house with the water tank full and using the pump.

weird I posted to this thread earlier today...did not show up...anyway---When mine broke it was at the entrance to the valve just behind the shower wall. The crack was where the pipe went into the valve. I unfortunately had no access to this area, had to cut a hole which is now covered by an access panel..but i was able to repair it with a piece of pipe from Home D and some plumbers goop. Has held up very well for a long while.
