Shower Faucet replacing

Folks, I need some advice (help). We have 2017 Jayco RKS and just discovered our shower faucet is leaking. I removed it from the shower shell, and bought a new one. All good. But now when I am trying to put it back together, their is no room for my hands to attach the hot/cold water lines to the two male pipes on the back of the faucet. The water supply lines coming out of the wall are tight. And I have tried everything to get a little slack, and no luck.

Is there an access panel behind your entertainment center?
I replaced my shower faucet in my Northpoint 375 and I opened up the cabinet door on the opposite side of the shower wall and it didn't look like there was an access panel but in the top and bottom centers of the back of the cabinet were a pair of screws. I took those out and the whole back of that cabinet wall came right out giving me all kinds of room.
If you have one and can't get enough pipe slack, I'd get a few fittings and a couple of flex lines for some more slack. Most likely your plumbing is PEX and those shark bite fittings work very well and connect to ANY kind of plumbing pipe.

. I'm sure there are guys that can give you some help if you post pictures. I converted my bathroom and kitchen faucets to residential but was unable to do that with the shower because of the lack of room in that tiny access panel. I was able to put an upgraded RV faucet in it. But that doesn't help you.

Hi, can you give me the name of the faucet you used on RV? I have been looking around the only ones I seem to find are cheap ones (similar to the one came with my camper)?

We have the same problem with tight area. But now we are checking to see if my wife's little hands can get the job done.

Thanks so much everyone's help.
