Shower leaks behind shower surround

Help please,I just brought home my first Airstream a 98 Bambi 19 ft, was flushing out the water lines, everything was good until I turned on the shower, nothing came out of the wand, but water started coming out of the bottom of the trailer, I took the wand off and tried again, water came out of the fitting, put wand back on, you can hear the water leaking behind the surround when turned on, no water leaks until the shower is activated, how do you access behind the surround? Any help would be appreciated

Sounds like a freeze break???

There should be an access to the valve. Post pics of the area.

Since it only leaks when turned on, that is good news! The leak is between valve and sprayer.

Fixed

I removed the panel that the shower door attaches to and was able to repair the line from the control valve to the fitting the shower hose connects to, I was happy it wasn't as big of issue that I thought it would be.

I also have a similar leak (I think). Is the panel easily removed to get access to the backside of the shower? It looks like I can remove the panel by removing the 3 screws and maybe the window curtain and curtain hardware over the toilet. Am I correct?

Thanks for any insight!

I don't have a window in my bathroom so not sure about that, I just removed my shower door, then the piece that the door mounts to by removing a few screws and cutting the caulk where it is sealed to the shower surround, and then I was able to access the plumbing, hope that helps.

Thanks Divemaster but I guess the my 2007 19' Bambi has a little different shower. Anybody out there with a newer 19' Bambi having a water leak behind the shower hot/cold water valve knowing how to get access to it?

Thanks!
