Did you replace the shower head also?
Any feedback on that if you did?

Is the mixing lever for when you have a tub spout and shower head? How does that work when you only have shower head?

Dan,
Which shower head do you have? I replaced my with an Oxygenics and it really make a difference with the water pressure coming out of the head. Much better.

We are using the stock head that came in out 2014.
We had an Oxygenics in the last rig and am familiar with it. I actually have a new one in the closet I was going to put on while dry camping at Nascar races to save on water.

We are not unhappy with the stock head.
I just wondered about the one shown in the link as it shows a 'fixed' shower head without a hose,

Didn't replace the shower head but one could as easily as in your house. One did come with the trim kit I bought, I just didn't think it necessary to change it.

The mixing lever would control any water coming from the valve, including a tub spout if you had one.

Hey Boxers, would this one work? Delta Lahara Monitor 14 Series 1-Handle Temperature Control Valve Trim Kit in Venetian Bronze (Valve Not Included)-T14038-RB - The Home Depot

I don't want to replace the shower head.

Gasman94,
The link you sent over isn't for a pressure balance valve. There is no mixing lever so unless you wish to just change the trim kit without the ability to adjust the temp as I have indicated, you should look for another kit. I believe the Lahara I purchased does also come in the Venetian Bronze though.

To all that have responded,
I don't want to suggest that my solution will solve all your problems. I believe the worst problem I had was the hard time we had adjusting the mix between hot and cold with the crappy valve and trim kit supplied by Forest River.

A pressure balance valve with the mixing lever DOES solve issues of hard to adjust shower valve handles, along with the fact that any faucet turned on in the motorhome during your shower will not affect the temperature during your shower. It's main feature is that it counters any drop in pressure from either side (hot or cold).

Very simple really.

Another note on the shower head, I was not able to find a Delta trim kit (pressure balance) without a shower head included. I seem to remember at one point prior to the switch that some internet site had a full kit without the shower head but including the needed pressure balance valve. Never could find the website again when I went to purchase so I ended up at Home Depot online.
