bathroom shower

I was outside earlier, prepping our 19 for a trip to Yosemite tomorrow. We've owned the trailer over a year, and haven't yet used its shower, but may well do so this trip. Here's what I ran across: the bathroom sink faucet has (what I assume is) the knob to alternate between water flow into the sink and water up to the shower located between the hot and cold valves. That thing won't pull up and down, it just rotates in a circular fashion. Real rookie question here -- is the thing stuck because it won't go up and down, or does it operate like a ball valve, and alternate flow direction by turning in a circular motion?

Re: bathroom shower

I am as in the dark as you, having never used the shower. I just checked and mine moves up and down about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. Would water pressure be necessary for it to work or move properly?

Re: bathroom shower

I tried ours during my initial inspection...the knob on moves about 1/4 inch and is held up by water pressure. The slide "switch" on the shower nozzle cuts off the flow when desired.

Re: bathroom shower

Yup, you need water pressure. Pull up on the knob with the tap turned on and it will divert the flow to the shower head. And, you have a switch on the shower head to turn it on and off and conserve water.

You not only take a shower, but clean the bathroom at the same time.

I got a small squeegee for wiping down the walls and that works better than a sponge.

Re: bathroom shower

I tried that, it worked. Case closed. Thanks all for the advice.
