Hey all. We have a toilet shower combo in our Coleman Niagara. We noticed a small leak in shower base so we replaced the shower it with an RV shower base and it still leaks after one shower. We replaced it again with a different style and it still leak after attaching the hose line. It’s not leaking from the hose attachment, but from the other side of it between the base and the wall. See images. What have you don’t to fix this issue? It seems like the plastic it’s made with is crap. We did check our water regulator and that seems to be working fine since there are no issues with our sink lines. How did you modify your modify your inside shower?

So, when you use the shower the water runs under the faucet base and leaks behind it? It dosent leak from a fitting right? Make sure the back plate is in the correct orientation, it shouldnt leak. But if it did , plumbers puddy or silicone on the underside of the plate where it meets the wall will stop it. Also make sure you tighten the nuts evenly, so 10 turn on one side , then the other side. If you tighten one side too much the other will have a gap.

Thank you for your response. It was leaking on the threading behind the plastic fitting or nut when the washer and everything else was tightened. He found a washer that he had and that didn’t come with the faucet set and was able to fix it. It was odd. Each rv faucet set he bought was either cracked or it leaked until he combined fittings from two different sets. It’s good now and works great. Thank you!
