shower drain opening too high

Hello,


Ok, I know this is not in a FR product but this site has always been a wealth of information and this problem is not manufacturer specific. This is in a 2014 Cougar XLite 21RBS.



The problem is that the shower tub does not drain fully but leaves a good amount of water in the shower. My observation is that the shower drain appears to be the high spot instead of the low spot in the shower tub.
I suspect that the drain pipe is too long and is pushing the shower drain up.



I intend to look into this weekend but am wondering if others have experienced this and what they did to remedy. I suspect I will have to cut the pipe and re-glue it to shorter length. The TT does have an enclosed belly.



Thanks in advance

Try and use a 4' level and see if that is the problem first. Put it in the center of the tub and make sure. I can't see your draining pushing it up without a soft spot when you stand by the drain. If I'm not level mine will hold some water. Sorry but not much help, never heard of that problem before, Good luck..

Yes, I had a unit once where they must have plumbed the drain, to the floor pan before setting it in place.
The drain plumbing hit the floor and pushed that area up slightly.
My choices were to cut the floor directly below the drain (to allow it clearance) or leave it be.
Because the drain on that unit wasn't located above a basement or compartment, I chose to leave it be. I put a squeegee in the tub for everyone to use and never looked back.

I did put a level over the shower drain, which is towards the door not centered, and the side of the pan closest to the plexi walls is as much as 5/8" lower than the top of the drain.

2016 Wildcat 327re same problem

If our unit is dead level there is no water accumulation. This past weekend it was still level but the bobble was touching the line and water accumulated along the front edge. It seemed that the lip of the drain was higher than the shower floor. I intend to remove the cover and possibly replace with a fully perferated drain cover.

You might just want to learn to live with. Sometimes the cure is worse than the problem.
