    I have a 2008 Jayco Pop-Up Camper and I tried for the first time to hook up the water line and use the indoor sink...only to find the water was leaking in to my camper. What I found was the outside shower was cracked and I'm assuming that was the root of my problem. Now I'm looking for a replacment, but there are so many options. Can just about any work or am I looking for something specific?

    I just replaced mine after exposure to the sun caused the plastic to degrade.

    Just about any replacement shower will work. My only concern was finding one that fit the cut out dimension in the exterior wall. After that, it's just hooking up the hoses, applying new butyl tape behind and reattaching it to the PUP. This is one of the simpler repairs.

    I recently had to perform the same repair - I was able to determine that the crack was inside the faucet itself - so no need to replace the entire housing (as your amazon links suggest), just the faucet. I'm not sure if that is your situation as well, but thought it worthy of mentioning. It was a very easy fix (took me about 10 minutes total), and what I learned (the hard way) was that the most important part is measuring the distance between the posts on the faucet (or the holes in the plastic housing) as they come in several different sizes (ask me how I learned this).

    Here's the one I eventually ended up purchasing and installing: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002P31ODM?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    As you can see, it has a 3 3/8 inch span between faucet nozzles (assuming measured center to center). There was also a 4" model which was far too big for the housing already installed in my camper.

    Good luck with your fix!
