Shower knobs

Does anyone know where to get replacement shower knobs for a 2008 cardinal? So far my dealer has only been able to order the whole assembly.

i'm not clear on which knob. only one i can think of is the one to redirect the water to the shower head. i believe they screw on. check lowes or home depot. mom and pop hardware stores are usually good choices.

They do screw on but they are made with internal tabs that stop the rotation at full on/off position. These are the hot/cold controls.

ur talking abt the handles on the faucets? u may be able to find a pair that u can replace them with at Lowes or Home Depot. if u go that route, i'd take the old one with me.
i u have an outside shower, that isn't used, those handles may work.

other than that, F1100turbo has abt the only other option.
you may also want to try these people. it is kind of hit or miss with them. New and Reconditioned RV Parts & Accessories - RV Surplus

ur probably going to find the handles are going to cost as much as the whole thing.

by the way if they ever start dripping, all that is in there is an "O" ring. if u have a rubber and gasket place, they can match them.

I cracked one of those handles and had a heck of a time finding a replacement. I ended up getting the whole unit at one of the RV Surplus store in Elkhart IN., as stated it was the only way to get the knobs. Those faucet units are so poorly made if I were to do it again I would look to a real replacement.

I had the same problem and failed at finding a replacement through our local dealer or on line. I swapped out the exterior knobs to the inside and used super glue on the broken ones. I eventually went and replaced the whole unit with a brass one. Good luck!

When I checked the outside knobs were also cracked. My dealer was able to order complete replacement faucets with knobs from FR so I have new knobs and spare parts.
