1992 E350 Dutchmen Shower/Water Lines John Pollette 4-24-10  
I left water in the hot water pipe during a long, hard freeze about 6 weeks ago. Water froze, busted the hot water line inside the wall behind the shower. I cut all the caulking, removed all the screws in the shower center section, and have broken down the hot and cold water taps as much as I can. Problem is, the taps have no more screws or nuts or anything but they are still connected to the center shower wall section and connected to the plywood backing. Basically I can't get the things off in order to remove the shower section so I can get to the plywood...Remove it and then get to the pipes so I can repair them. Anybody got any experience in this or have suggestions, advice...At this point I am totally lost.

Hi John, Usually and almost always the faucets are held to the wall with flat plastic thumb nuts on the back, screwed over the inlet stems. Try looking in a cabinet or elsewhere near the shower faucets for an access panel to the shower plumbing. I just saw a Class C that the panel was hidden behind the sliding pantry. Or cut a hole in a panel to possibly gain access. Good luck

I thought about that too keith...There is a closet behind the shower. But no access panel. The only other option I can come up with is to take the closet completely apart and see if I can access it that way. Sure does seem like a whole lot of work to fix a pipe. A little ridiculous in my opinion.

Dont take the shower apart, cut an access panel and trim it out later. (approved warranty proccedure)
Good Luck
