Shower Faucet replacement...Help!

Ok guys....I am kind of stuck.....we broke the HOT side of the faucet in the shower over the summer the last time we went camping......I started taking it apart yesterday...but am know looking for some help....BEFORE I BREAK SOMETHING!.....I have taken everything off that I can....but it will not "Let go" of the wall?


I thought that when I took the 4 screws where it attaches to the wall....that it would come off......should I pry there?????



Thanks for any input!....

I just took mine off about a month ago. Once I removed the screws I had to use a knife to cut through the caulking around the base. I can't tell if yours is caulked or not, I'm betting it is and after cutting through the caulk it should come right off.

Are your water lines not colored? The water lines in our trailer are red and blue.
