    In the Reflection 303, with the curved glass corner shower, there is a small panel below the faucets in the shower wall that is the only access to these water connections or the black tank flush vacuum break.

    On my shower the faucet is attached to an extension box that is screwed to the shower wall. In my previous trailer I had to remove the faucet by taking off the extension box and then disconnecting from there. I suspect that this is how I would have to replace the fittings as I don't have an access panel without cutting one in the closet wall. Not really what I want to do so whenever I get to making the changes I will try with the extension box first.

    Thanks Rob..
    That makes a world of sense.
    I wish I had the kind of property where I could park my RV right next to my house, instead of a storage lot. (Sub division) ugh

    I could then examine more of what I have, IPO trying to remember ??
    Oh wait !!!
    IF that were the case,
    I might NEVER STOP this incessant urge for perfection !!!! LOL !!

    Excellent question. In my case, 230RL, GD ran the lines between the shower and the back wall of the closet (they left a little cutout, which was nice except when you press on the shower, it feels like there is nothing behind it, because there isn't anything back there to hold it). The lines run down, under the shower pan and exit right at the shower drain. Tight fitting, can't them out to replace with pex because they are so wedged in. I may have to disassemble the shower drain and pan to remove and switch to pex. But the switch will also most likely require expanding the cutout in the floor to make a little more room so as not to kink or bind the pex. It is unclear at this point how possible the switch to pex is. GD is working to get me some more information--if it exists.

    Yes for my shower lines I used the appropriate barb fitting and clamp and adapted to PEX once in the storage bay. There was just no way I was going to get PEX lines up to the shower controls without tearing apart the wall on the other side, or removing the shower. I am confident enough in the rubber hose iteself, its just the use of PEX fittings that is giving the issues.
