Default Need help with shower faucet replacement

I have a 2008 FF X23 double slide out and need to replace my shower faucet and don't know for sure how to access the plumbing. I started to remove some of the shower interior wall because I though there would be access to the back of the fixture but that does not appear to be the case.

I looks like I may need to pull out the refrigerator since it is directly behind the shower wall but wanted to check first with the group to see if anyone knew for sure before I tried to tackle that big of a job.

It should just screw off from the outside, don't think you need to get behind the wall at all....

I removed the tub/shower faucets from my XT276 due to low hot water flow.

I did it all from the faucet side ~ no need to access it from behind. Remove the handles and securing nuts behind the handles, and carefully cut the sealant away from around the perimeter of the faucet assembly and carefully pull it away from the wall.

I found the excess line for the hot water to be kinked so a simple realignment/routing solved the issue.

Thank you guys for your help, I will go back and take a closer look at it next weekend. Hopefully mine will be the same way and I can access it from inside the shower.

Well I cant believe how much time has past since my initial post on replacing the shower faucet. I guess since we normally shower at the camp ground facility it hasn't been that big of a deal. On the one boon docking trip we took we used the outdoor shower so just don't seem to use the one in the camper much. After looking for several options I finally just pulled the refrigerator out and sure enough I was able to get to the back of the shower faucet to replace it. In my head pulling the refrigerator out seemed like a huge task, especially if it would have turned out I couldn't have accessed it. Really it wasn't all that much work and had it out, faucet replaced and back together in 2 hours. Just wanted to send this update incase anyone in the future runs into the same thing.
