Leaky shower nozzle

Is there a shower water cut off in a 2008 Lexington 255 gts? Leaks whenever any water pressure is on. Had to tape hose and apply kinks to hose in a couple of places. The wall access did not show cutoffs. Do I just replace faucet set up ?

The shower nozzle head is leaking when the hot or cold water pressure is on in the shower ? Or when water pressure is on to the camper ?

I just had my shakedown cruise with my trailer and I have the same problem. It started after the first shower was taken, now, whenever the pump is on, the shower sprayer leaks. I'm taking it in for warranty service.

Some shut off valves allow a small amount of water to flow be design ( not a leak) for soaping up . You can easily replace it with a positive shut off valve.

Thanks Seagrace

Let me know what happens...my rv is a 2008 and so no warranty. Hope it is something I can repair fairly easily.

Could be some trash collected in the faucet seats. Remove the handles and cartridges, start the pump to flush out the lines, clean the cartridges and reassemble. If that don,t do it a couple of new cartridges or faucet might be in order.

Are you talking about the inside or outside shower? There is no shut off valve in any RV that I have seen for the showers. If water is leaking out of the shower head one of the faucet valves is leaking. You in all probably you have a bit of dirt or grud stuck in the valve seat. I would shut off the water pressure and take the faucet apart and look that would be easier for me than taking the unit back to the dealer.
