I've emailed Lakeview RV supply and asked them if any improvements have be made and he just no in the email and asked me to call him. The two water lines in my 25fb rise up behind the shower. They are flexible enough to bend them and the shower lines slightly to clear the valve from the wardrobe floor framing to the access hatch in the bottom of the closet. I would imagine when the valve is in its normal position in the cavity between the shower stall wall and the AS wall it must take a pounding when the trailer is in tow. Maybe that is why they fail all the time? Maybe wrapping it in some foam with tie wraps would help but then it would be much harder to push it back into the cavity.

I think I'll stick to the the elbow that I installed. See my post in this other thread

Kelvin, Mine didn't break like the one in the pic upstream. The poppet style valve leaked and water would shoot up into the umbrella and then down to the floor. They are just CHEAP pieces with zero quality control on clearances and tolerances. I have had NO problem in 2.5 years with a "patch" and no valve in place.
