Weird Faucets?

So on my 2014 SS 3010DS the hot water shower faucet opens clockwise while the bathroom cold water sink faucet also opens clockwise as well. These are opposite of what is normal. These are both integrated units, i.e., the spout, hot, and cold faucets are one unit. BTW, the shower controls are also upside down compared to my other trailers I'm familiar with. In other words, the hose assembly goes towards the bottom as opposed to the more normal top towards the shower head. The hose on my unit then wraps around the handles to go towards the shower head.

Any idea what happened here and how to correct?

Our 2016 SS is same. My husband changed BR sink to a lever faucet.
But the shower doesnít seem that easy. After 7 months in SS I spent a week with my daughter. Her shower was such a challenge! What faucet goes on that shower?

The same in 2016DS. You would have to remove the shower faucet assembly, swap the lines and remount the assembly upside down (hose facing up) to change the direction the faucet knobs operate.

Although it would fix the upside down problem It will just reverse which faucet is opening incorrectly wonít it?

Had that on a sink in my house. The cartridge in the handle was installed 180 degrees off. Pulled cartridge out and re-aligned it. Don't know if your rv faucet has ceramic cartridge but that could be fix.

If you turn clockwise now, when you flip the assembly, it would open the hot counterclockwise, because you also swap the connections.
