2016 Wildcat 327RE shower faucet

Need information on how to replace the shower faucet. Is it accessed from behind or do you just take the screw out or remove it. I'm trying to replace it with a single level model. Thank you.

If you can post a pic of your current shower water controls, someone can probably answer your questions.

That model does not appear to have rear access that's why it's mounted on that extender. Remove the screws and you can then remove faucet from extender.

You will need to remove both knobs and remove valves. If reinstalling these valves they can go back in multiple ways. But only one way works(or at least the way it suppose to). I mark everything with sharpie while ensured valve is closed or off. I see you want to replace it but...

I was going to replace my valves in my shower and replace it with the single style lever. However, my shower stall doesnít allow me to access the rear area where the valves are.
I just wanted to replace the valve body, my original still works so I guess Iíll just live with it.

Well I figured it out finally. Stupid me I missed the circular plastic door that screws into the side of the trailer to access the rear of the the shower valve.

I have the outside access port like yours had it open and found that a fitting was starting to drip tightened fitting but boy that is hard to do thru a 4 inch opening. I noticed the newer trailers don't have that port anymore but the shower where the valve is mounted is removable doesn't look like it would be any easier thou?

Iíve been very busy inside the trailer after getting back from 2 weeks in Scottsdale for spring training.
I replaced my original stereo and installed a new Jensen AWM968 stereo/dvd.
Also strengthened the wardrobe hanging bar by replacing it with a wooden one and used 1/2Ēx3Ē for cleating to support the wooden bar. It turned out great and very strong and wonít have to worry about the bar pulling away from the side walls of the closet.

I replaced mine on my 2017 327re. Nothing to it. All you need is a Phillip's screwdriver and a pair of channel locksClick image for larger version
