Not sure if this will help at all, since I have the 8289ws model. My drain pipe is exposed under shower in the storage compartment and I noticed it was getting wet, I must have hit the plastic pipe loading things in. Anyways ended up replacing the drain for about $5.00 part at home depot. They are the ones sold for Mobil homes. Now I'm more careful when loading things in there.

I had the same issue. Mine was a loose union in storage compartment. Must have hit it a few times loading and unloading.

Try the screwed faucet fitings behind the shower wall. Remove faucet and check the hot and cold connections. Also change the sealant when you install the faucet base to wall. I've found both types off leaks in two seperate RV's
