Shower Faucet Problem

Forgive me if I use incorrect terminology, I have no idea what I'm doing here LOL. I have a 2011 Shamrock 233S that is currently out at my deer lease. Last weekend I took my son and a buddy of his out there. While my son's buddy was using the shower, he managed to completely remove one of the faucet controls, including the internal valve with the handle still attached. I'm guessing since one turns clockwise and the other counter-clockwise he thought he was turning it the right way.

I shut off the pump and found the grommet that goes on the inside of the valve housing. I inspected everything and by looking at the other valve it looks like it was all intact. I put it back together and now the valve will not fully shut off. When turned "off" water still comes through. I tried turning the valve 180 degrees. There are small slots on the sides of the valve housing where the valve lines up. Same thing.

There is a panel around the faucet held on by four screws. I tried removing them so I could take the whole assembly out to bring home, but when I tried to pull the assembly out there wasn't much wiggle room. Only an inch or so and I didn't want to break anything so I put it back together.

Any idea what could be wrong with the valve?

Should that whole assembly come out a way from the wall so I can get to the connections? If not how do I remove it?

Assuming I can get to the connection behind the faucet, is my best be just to spend $20 on a new faucet control? If so, any recommendations?

Thanks,
Larry

I talked to a local service department about this and he explained that once the guts come out of the valve it's almost impossible to get back together. My best bet is to buy a $20 replacement so that's what I'll do.

He also said that the access panel around the faucet should come out a few inches. Just enough to unscrew the connection lines.

So... would this work as a replacement?

That is OEM in my camper. All my faucets are that unit.

Larry,when you replace the shower controls,point the threaded hose output pipe in the Down position.This will allow it to drain properly for winter,also the hot & cold valves will now turn (Properly) like in your home. Your boys buddy made the same mistake many other RVers make ,on direction to turn the Knobs! Youroo!!

What is the purpose of turning the threads down? Does it increase flow/pressure?

Want to come do mine? :-D. This is next on my list, when it's turned off, I get a trickle of water running though.
