Outside Access panel

When de-winterizing today, I noticed a water leak coming from a panel outside underneath the rv. The panel is almost above the back driver's side tires. I think the leak is coming from the shower drain. This panel looks like it is right below the shower.

We don't have a tub, only a shower.

I don't want to remove the panel unless I am sure it is the access to the shower drain as the screws are totally rusted and you never know how easy it will be to put the panel back on. Anybody know what this panel accesses?

Thanks for your help - its a 2007 Georgetown

I am not a motorhome guy and maybe someone who is can be more helpful.

However, if it was my camper, I would definitely remove that panel and start troubleshooting right away (or get it right to a dealer if you are unable). Water leaks are nothing to fool with.

Those screws need to be replaced with stainless steel equivalents anyway before the panel comes off on its own (or the screws break off when you finally do need to remove it for something).

The screws are really rusty because the panel is above the tires so they get road spray. Will get some better screws to replace. Thanks for the reply.

I read once a drain connection separated (glued) from the shower/tub drain causing a leak. Did you run water down a drain when de-winterizing? Water damage is the number one worst in RVing. Trouble shoot that leak right away. You'll sleep better knowing.
