    Default Delta 1500 to 1700 sleeve too short

    Hi Folks,
    I'm new to this board, but have been reading the posts for a while now.

    I just completed a Delta Monitor 1500 to 1700 conversion.
    The conversion worked great, but there is one issue; the RP50880 sleeve is too short and does not fit securely into the cover plate.
    I'm worried if I leave it like this water will get in behind my shower fixture and eventually cause me some issues.

    Is there a sleeve that I can get that is longer then the RP50880?
    If not, is there a different cover plate (Escutcheon) that I can get that will come out a little farther.
    I don't need much length, a half inch or so.

    Thanks,
    Carl

    Are you converting a "Delta Universal Valve Body"? If not then I don't see how you could make that conversion.

    I used the RP29405 Delta Monitor 1500 to 1700 conversion kit.
