Backwards Faucets

How many of you have Soleras in which your shower and sink faucet knobs turn the wrong way? I think its the hot water knob specifically, it turns off from the opposite direction that it should.

At some point I'm going to have to see if I can correct this; very annoying esp. when one needs to turn down the hot water quickly in the shower!

Faucets mounted upside down

Shower faucets and outside shower controls are mounted upside down. The shower control should have the hose coming out the bottom. If you look closely there is a drain hole in the top (this should be on the bottom)
You have to remove the complete assembly from the shower wall, disconnect the hot & cold connection (be careful you don't drop the sealing gaskets) turn the complete assembly over reconnect the water lines, check for water leaks before remounting the assembly. Re-caulk. Reinstall the valve cores (don't mix them up). When finished, swap the "H" & "C" inserts on the knobs.

This should correct the wrong installation at the factory by a "BUBBA" worker.

There was a quite lengthy post about this problem of the wrong installation on a earlier post.

the faucet in the shower in my rockwood also works backward. i can't turn it over because it has a tub filler spout. don't know why they would put a "tub filler" faucet in a spa shower. the base is not deep or big enough to use as a tub.Hmmmmmm, maybe the wife could use it to wash clothes in.

Photo please. Are you missing the hose and wand from your camper?

Forgot mention about -----------

Forgot mention about correcting the outside shower, very easy. Get access to the rear of the outside control (WHERE HOT & COLD CONNECT)
remove the cold and hot lines, switch the two. Put the hot where the cold is and put the cold where the hot was. Now switch the "H" & "C" inserts on the control knobs.

This is the quick fix for your outside shower.

I have a 2011 Wildwood 26TBSS and I have the same problem, all faucet handles are backwards. Are they supposed to be this way?
