Reversing faucet direction

On my 2016 MBS the H control on the shower and C control on the sink are reversed so you turn them clockwise to turn on. On a previous RV I owned I corrected this by removing the internal valve and turning it 180 degrees. I turned the valve on this faucet 180 and it didn't change anything. I remember the older style valve had stops on the top and this one doesn't.

I can't find any posts on this new style of valve. The style shown in the link you provided is for an different version (shoulders on valve body)that I know how to fix.

Instead of the term shoulders I should have said valve stops. Mine do not have the valve stops as shown in the link.

Did you actually pull the cartridge out and look on the bottom for the small steel tab? I know that I initially tried just turning the cartridge and it didn't help. I had to actually take the metal tab off of the bottom of the cartridge and turn it 90 degrees and then the handle rotated the correct way. Well, the handle would rotate the right way *and* the water would come on/off appropriately.

Yeah, take a picture with the handles off and also a picture of the cartridge.

So your saying just reverse the metal tab? I see there is a teardrop shape to the metal tab.

You're supposed to rotate the plate 90deg, but I don't think you can do that on that cartridge.
Can you take a picture of the inside of the faucet with the cartridge removed?
