Crappy shower valve replaced

Just replaced the cheap shower valve and control in our new Berk. We have an Atwood tankless and found it a pain to adjust the temp while in the shower. Purchased a Delta Lahara Pressure Balance valve and now the temp problem is completely solved.

I would suggest this to anybody who has the same issue with adjustment during their showers.

Boxers,
Where did you purchase this and what did you need to purchase? I see that there are references to a valve, is that something that needs to be replaced also? What did you pay?
Thanks

We have same issue on our 2016 38a. Love the Atwood tankless on all other faucets but shower is a pain to adjust. Any product number and pictures and "how to's" would be greatly appreciated as we'd love to fix our issue as well!

Thanks!

I bought the valve and handle online from Home Depot. Attached are the 2 hyperlinks.

You should be able to use any Pressure Balanced valve and handle. It will do the same thing.

I just used the Sharkbite connectors I got locally at the Home Depot to connect them. If you are familiar with plumbing, it shouldn't be hard to do yourself. But hire a plumber if you're not sure.

Total cost was about $220.

tmmar, let me know how you make out with the conversion. Does your unit have the Atwood tankless and do you have the same temperature control issue?

Does the control you installed have independent flow control and hot/cold mixing control? I have a house shower control that is always full flow and allows mixing hot and cold.

My coach has the Girard heater. Have some minor issues with temperature control but looking to eliminate them completely.

Yep, two levers. One flow and one mixing.
