VLX Shower Relocation Project

Recommended Posts

So I bring my new VLX home and can't believe where the heck the factory put the shower controls. What do you mean I have to remove both rear seat cushions and the center tray out just to adjust the water temp??? The wife says "That's not going to work"! Project time!!!

Old location:

Order a new flush mount temp control valve and start cutting up the new bu:

Hot water routing:

Cold water routing:

Completed Install with custom bracket for shower hose:

The wife is happy, which makes me happy, the only thing that would make me happier now is if would warm up so I could go drive this thing!! Cry.gif

I was lucky enough to see where the factory put the shower controls before I ordered my boat. I asked them to put the controls along with the on/off switch where you put yours. They did an awesome job.

Yeah, where it is right now is awefully horrible. They should install it factory in that location.

As soon as the stereo was done I moved my shower controls to the same place on my 04.

I thought the factory location was kinda stupid Dontknow.gif

Where they put it is definitely stupid. But I find once I set it the first time, I never touch it the rest of the year.

That wouldn't work for me, what I think is hot and what my wife thinks is hot are two totally different things. Dontknow.gif

Maybe they finally figured out that was a really strange place to put the controls!! :unsure:

Last month I took my 10 year old daughter to a boat show. I showed her a boat with a shower and pulled the hose out of its small compartment. In her innocents, she looked at me and said, “How do you get in there to take a shower?” :lol:
