How to - replace 23rb bath faucet?

This year was my first year with my new and first travel trailer. I took it on about 8-9 excursions. The faucet on the bath tub cracked. I have no idea how it cracked but it did, and when the shower is engaged, it sprays out from the crack.

I am looking for some guidance /direction in fixing it. It looks to me as if it is a replaceable part, t the weather is cold in Indiana and I haven't attempted.

Has anyone had to replace this piece? If so, I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

Is it a new RV? If so it is covered under the Jayco 2 year bumper to bumper warranty. IF not there should be a moveable panel on the wall opposite the taps.. lift or unscrew that panel and there you are... loosen the 2 nuts holding the water pipes on (drain your system first) make sure they don't fall down the hole go to the shower side and pull out the taps...

I had one of those trailers (2014 or 2015 model) and changed out the faucet for a different design. I didn't like all the water wasted by the tub spout so I installed a shower only type faucet.

The faucet backs up to the refer. I removed the refer and still could not reach the faucet so that was a waste of time. I managed to get my arm up in there from the panel below the refer. It wasn't easy and took me all day.

Completely removing the tub spout is a great idea. We NEVER use the tub spout, except to get the shower started. I've got a Starcraft 235fb which is a twin to the Jayco 23fb, except the shower is on the opposite side. So I have easy access to the panel behind the dining booth. Thanks for the idea.

If it's a 2015 the fridge covers it on the other side. Get it fixed under warranty.
I got aggravated just winterizing my 2015 23rb, wh bypass is under the fridge and I couldn't hardly get under there. If I had to get under there to try and get at that faucet I'm sure I'd have to take the bathroom door down to be able to lay down and get my hand up in there.

You are correct. I did remove the bathroom door but that's takes only about 30 seconds.
