Cale may be speaking of something like this. My 3800 has one located under the manifold.

May be that but my 3950 doesn't have that (or anything to access the pipes).

If it's not in the shower then you don't have one. They probably wanted to save three bucks so they decided to leave them out.
It wouldn't be that hard to install one, especially if you want to check the backside of the manifold.
I can post a photo tomorrow of where it's located if you'd like.

Below the faucet control of the shower, we have a round "hatch" that you turn counterclockwise to remove gaining access to the water connections behind it.

I have that exact fitting as the entry to my utilities cabinet but not in the shower. If I need it, I'll add one.

Sorry, I dropped a comment and haven’t been back. Been on the road for work and no internet, which is liberating sometimes.

Yes, the “hatch” is as shown above. When I had a leak, I eventually found that it was coming from the back of the faucet. The water leaked and enough would come out from under the shower pan. While they did a crap job putting the vinyl floor down, they did at least run the vinyl y’all the way to the walls, so no floor damage, just a water mess.

I did remove the WHOLE shower and reinstall. I did it while fulltiming with the family during the winter nearly two years ago...bad decision on my part. While I had fixed it, once I am not in the trailer full time, I will pull all and redo again to make look more professional.
