Having a hard time finding new shower and sinks
« on: July 07, 2018, 11:43:30 PM »
I need to replace the whole shower, kitchen sink, and bedroom sink. The first 2 are the most important right now, and I haven't started the look on the other sink.
Anyway, my shower is a corner piece, with a 6 side shower pan. like this: https://www.haylettautoandrv.com/console/photos/inventory/large/7bc4dc1ea08ab68.jpg

The pan has 6 sides like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lippert-209797-White-Better-Bath-Neo-Angle-RV-Shower-Pan-Center-Drain-9-5-Rise/132054331834?hash=item1ebf0d31ba:g:EeEAAOSw44BYbRxv
Mine does not have the door but I'm curious what it's for?

Now the issues. First, the dimensions I have for the surround are: 33 1/2 x 33 1/2 x 65 1/16
What comes up for this are these typical units: surround: https://www.rvautoparts.com/306205-Lippert-Components-Shower-Surround-1-Piece-Design_p_33475.html
An extra 3 inches in height won't hurt anything, but I want to know if my rivet holes will line up?
 I am having trouble interpreting the dimensions for the base. It doesn't list where they get these dimensions from. I measured the front sides at 15 1/2 x 25 x 15 1/2. The back middle side measured 10 3/8. I can't get an accurate reading from the other 2 due to the glass frame.
I also cannot find one with a center drain. My pan's drain is in the middle and center of the pan. I only see front and center.

That's that for the shower.  My sink, I also cannot find an exact replacement. At the face of the sink, I have a length of 24 5/8 and depth of 19 5/16.  The best I found is thishttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Lippert-209586-3-Holes-Better-Bath-Double-RV-Sink-Plastic/162345790488?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
The seller tells me the Actual size: 24 3/8" W x 18 7/8" D
Even this isn't right https://www.rvautoparts.com/209404-Lippert-Components-Sink-Double-Kitchen-Sink_p_15719.html
But that one is almost identical.
I tried measuring the countertop hole underneath and it seems I will still have room for the sink, but not only am I losing size,  my other concern then is the piping placement.

This is out of a 2005 KZ Sportsmen. After talking to RVautoparts, Lippert, and no success in getting in contact with KZ after many attempts, I am writing this thread.

It doesn't need to be an "RV" part, so look beyond RV suppliers.    There are zillions of sinks and shower enclosures available, so you just have to hunt up one with dimensions that fits. Expecting prior rivet or screw holes to line up is overly optimistic, though.

A possible alternative would be to find the identical components from a similar model in an RV salvage yard, e.g. Visione or Colaw's.

As far as I know, K-Z doesn't sell parts direct, so you would have to go through a dealer. Doubtful that they would still have anything that fit in a 13 year old RV anyway.  They buy that stuff from plumbing industry suppliers as needed ad don't stock parts unless needed for new production.

Because it seems everything they stock wouldnt fit. The shower is important because it can't be over or under. I still can't get in touch with KZ either. Horrible customer service.

Still no luck
 I've even asked dealerships and they don't return my call either.

The door on the front would be to access the drain piping. Mine doesn't have a door and I wish it did.

Try a simple internet search for RV showers.

Here's a bunch from just one of the many RV parts places:

FWIW, the shower in my MH was made by the same people that made the shower for my home in MT.  Check with your local plumbing supply houses.

I'm able to find surrounds, but I am not able to find the right neo angle pan with a centered drain, even from the links.
