I Broke the Shower Handle

We have been in our Sunset Trail 300 BH for a week...I couldn't take the shower water pressure...or lack of any. So I decided to look for the regulator or whatever it is that is slowing down the pressure. I read the posts on here and figured I'd give it a go...well, no go!

I got the hose unscrewed from the base, but in the process, I'm pretty sure I cracked something. I tend to be a little heavy handed with tools. Water coming out at the base and running down wall.

Anyone that can help me I would so appreciate it.

Where is the water comming out of the fixture.?? Does water still flow even if the shower handles are in the off position.??? If so go to the city water connection and turn it off. If the water was still running with the shower handles in the off position you will have to replace the shower fixture.

Check the ring where you tighten the hose to the base, I tried to replace the head on mine and broke the ring with hand pressure.

Breaking the ring is probably a great possibility...as I said, I tend to do everything just a bit too hard!

Did the black washer fall out of the end of the hose before you screwed it back on??

If it is the standard cheapy that goes into RV's, then don't try and fix it. It probably cracked the main body. On the opposite wall to the shower (behind the shower valve) there should be a panel giving access to the valve connection and water lines. Turn your water off and disconnect the water lines. Remove the holding nuts and remove the valve. Take it to Ace (some) or an RV parts dealer and just replace it.

Harley could have your solution. Check and see if the washer is still in the end of the shower hose...

Once you get the leak fixed, get an Oxygenics shower head.
