A bathroom facet would be just like a home unit. You have to get inside the cabnet. The bathtub would also be simalar to a home unit but smaller. You probably have to tear the bath apart to replace it. Try bathfitter.

Take a look at my blog, if your bath is like mine, you'll see what lies underneath the lovely plastic. BTW, have you verified that there isn't any rot that needs to be fixed?

Bathfitter on a trailer? Thats a new one on me.

I have a 1973 27 foot international, if the bathroom faucet is like mine, go to the rear access door behind the trailer and look up under you can replace the faucet from the outside of the trailer, it does go in the same as a regular household bathroom faucet, I replaced mine with a Moen faucet that is what was in it originally.

For the shower, you've got to tear some things apart. It will suck the first time, but put it back together with stainless screws and it will make or much easier next time. The faucet (at least in my 74) is tough to un-plumb. I tore things apart to fix a leak, not to replace the faucet. If there's no problem, then I'd suggest leaving it alone.

Good Idea Jason, don't fix what is not broken especially when it is so hard to get at.
