Access Panel Location for Shower???

Anyone know where the access panel to the interior shower is located in a 2016 Classic 30’? The shower head backs to the wall of the bedroom where the tv is hanging. Need to replace mixing valve to fix a leak. Just bought yesterday and water continuously leaks in shower head and down on the floor when water is turned off in shower. We can’t find the access panel to see what’s going on. The previous owner never winterized it (from Colorado) so we’ve made repairs to all the damaged plumbing but still can’t figure out the shower.

Have you tried getting at it from the front? The PEX plumbing is flexible so they may have left enough slack in the lines to pull the valve from the front. Just guessing/hoping for you..... Mine backs onto the closet and there is a removable panel in there (which I discovered after doing some work from the front).

Is the leak out of the shower head? If so you may just need a cartridge which is accessible from the front by removing the trim plate.

Possible assistance in that mountain of manuals that came with trailer? As Al pointed out a cartridge is pretty simple. Shower valve manual might even have part numbers and such.

We experienced exactly the same issue with our2016 30 Classic that we purchased used from a dealer. They ended up pulling the valve body out through the interior of the shower and replacing it. However it appears to me that there should be plenty of access from behind the bedroom Television. But I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to release the tv swing bracket. There is a strap attached to the bracket near a joint, but it will not pull down to release the bracket.
