Replace shower faucet in 16RB

I would like to replace the faucet for the shower in our 2021 16RB Caravel. Has anyone done this. I know where to get a new faucet but I'm not sure how I would access the back side to unhook the prior one and connect the new one. I know there is an access area on the back wall under the mattress area but I'm not sure I can reach to that are from there.

If you go onto the airstream dot com website, you can download the parts diagram for your trailer. This makes it nice to see how everything fits together.

Go to Owners, and then Manuals and Parts Books.

FYI if you go to Owners, and then Resources and Owner's Hub, you will find more info as well.

It is tight, but if you remove the first bed board, you can reach the couplings and unscrew to remove/replace with a new faucet. The center/shower supply cracked and and I’ve ordered the faucet and couplers to swap. (Apologies for the photo being upside down-kept uploading that way)

Wooho!

Got my leaky faucet replaced. Tip: unfasten the shower connection (in the hamper) to make screwing the faucet out line easier. Was a bugger trying to attach…kept going on crooked.

Success! thermostatic faucet installed easily. No major tools needed other than a plumbers wrench. Extra purchases needed were a 79 inch shower hose (the attachment is slightly lower so the hose has to be longer) and a sink hole cover for the middle hole which is no longer used. Thanks for the help everyone!

Seems to work perfect (no cold blast)....will see if it lasts.

Can you tell us the purchasing info (make, model number, cost, where purchased, etc) of the faucet and hose you installed?
