In a 2002 Adventurer 810WS: I have a broken connector for the handheld in the shower and need to remove the faucet to either repair or replace it. I can't see any way to access the back and under side of the sink from either inside the shower or outside the camper.

Do I really have to cut a hole somewhere? The two choices would be in the plywood side of the camper (maybe not a structurally sound decision?) or in the face of the shower unit below the sink (definitely not an aesthetically pleasing result).

Thanks

I don't have that exact camper but some photos might help people with similar set-ups to advise.

I would look into drilling a large hole and installing a srewed access cover. Similar to what is used on boats to access storage areas.
I just saw a pic of one being used in a shower for a 5th wheel. Can't find it now.
here...I Googled it:

Yes, I have those access panels in my boat and that's what I was thinking of doing here. I'll post some pics shortly.

Someone at the manufacturer may also be helpful.

Looks like similar stall as ours, Except has a small door.
Found this for an '03

I assume no access thru wardrobe? (wishful thinking)
Ours

When our faucet broke I took the opportunity to add separate shower valve, though looks like you have exterior compartment behind location I used.
Have a hard time understanding justification for building something with no access, especially plumbing, though not that uncommon?

Maybe there is access through the bottom of the basement if you take a panel off.

Is there access if you remove the outside shower faucet?
