Faucet/shower combo

I have a new to me 1994 Hunter 29.5 and I have an issue with the shower. The sink in the head has a hot and cold faucet and then in between the hot and cold knobs there is a hose that attaches for the hand held shower. I can't get water to flow out of the shower. Water flows out of the sink just fine. I tried disconnecting the hose at the faucet and nothing flows out of that connection point even with the hose off. I don't see any levers or knobs to turn that on. This is the first boat that I owned that has a shower, so I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong, or if it is broken. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Re: Faucet/shower combo

I found a picture on YW.. see what you mean. Our shower (at home) is activated by pulling down on the tub spout.. the 'nozzle' that the water comes out of.. maybe you've got something similar. We have to tell any guests how that works - it's not obvious, that's for sure.

Timangiel,

Can you post a photo?

Do you have a hand shower with an on/off on it (small push button)?

If it's like our '99 340, try pulling up (hard) on the chrome ring surrounding the hose right where it attaches to the faucet.

Mine has a little switch/lever that toggles on and off. It's right up on the top of the showerhead. No idea why your face isn't getting sprayed when you have it all apart.

Pulling up on the hose right where it attaches seems to be the answer. I was surprised by how hard I had to pull, but it works.

Thanks everyone.
