Replace shower faucet in Sylvia/Larry?
 
Hey ya'll,

Brand new hope this is the proper spot for my question. Our Sovereign ('71 or'72) has a frozen shower valve. It will not pull out at all. Dave has water everywhere else now with no leaks (I CAN'T BELIEVE I JUST SAID THAT)! I am sure that we will probably need a new valve, and I read a post regarding that, but I want to be sure I understand. Can we replace with a new valve from Lowes or only a trailer type valve from an RV supply? Dave would probably understand better than I, but he spends most of his time with his head inside the water heater compartment.:blink: Also, our water supply has a regulator from the meter to the trailer (on advice from the water dept.). Will we still need a regulator/reducer for full time use? (Using a water hose to check things so far) Thanks!!:) Val

Hey Balrgn!
 
I wanted to thank you for you concern for poor Dave. Bless his heart, he finally came out of the water heater compartment and used a moen cartridge puller to remove the bad piece so now I have a working shower!!!:lol: I was the only one really concerned because everbody else is to tall to use it anyway. Just a thought...to redo airstreams you better be VERY handy with things or have lots of money to pay those who are. But we all love a challenge don't we!!:D Val
