Ultra Lite 2304S Shower Leak

Have a Rockwood 2012 2304S Ultra Lite. The shower faucet leaks. Anyone know how to access the supply lines?

I removed the "box" the faucet knobs are connected to, looked behind it and and can see where it's leaking. It's coming from a piece of plastic that connects the hose to the faucet. Problem is there doesn't appear to be enough slack in the hose for me to pull it out through the access hole in the shower wall to tighten it or remove/replace. Any help is appreciated.

I'm active duty military, local northern CA Rockwood dealer said because I bought the trailer somewhere else (bought in MI) it'll be 3 weeks before he can get to me.

We've got a 2304 and had a similar problem the first time out after winter storage. The leak was in the water pipe/faucet attachment point. Namely the washer was leaking..... !! You can get new washers at any RV dealer or some hardware stores and they are less than a buck each. It's an easy fix and change them both while you have it apart. I tied a piece of string to the water lines so they didn't disappear and the rest was dead easy. Also DON'T tighten the fittings to tight as they are only plastic.
Hope this helps.

Maggiek,
Thanks for the reply. But my problem is I can't pull enough of the supply lines out of the access hole. I pulled pretty hard, but the line doesn't come out of the access hole more than an inch or so. That's not enough room for me to get my hand (or tool) in there to fix it. I called someone at Camping World and he said sometimes techs have to pull the whole underbelly off in order to get to to the lines. That seems totally absurd to me. I "might" be able to get more of the lines out, but I'm afraid I'm going to pull too hard and wind up screwing something up more. i do appreciate the help, thanks.

I know the floor plans between these two trailers is different but...... Before I found the leak in ours I had the unit about tore apart. I found I could get at the bottom of the plumbing via the kitchen side wall, namely via the back of the dinette. You might be able to access the lower plumbing from the other side of the wall also. Might be a bit harder but at least you might be able to "manufacture" some slack to be able to get your hands at the back of the taps. I'd try about anything before I started to pull the underbelly apart!!!!

Good luck and let us know how you make out.
