Water leak from shower?

Hello all, we were camping in our Wildcat Max 313RE this past weekend. My son was taking a shower and I had to go get something out of the outside front storage area. When I opened the door I noticed water dripping down the right side panel forward of the shower. After watching it for a couple days I narrowed it down to only when someone is taking a shower does it leak. It's not a huge leak, I can stuff a paper towel up where the water is coming from and it will soak it up. It's right near a water line, but I can't see any leaks from the lines. I know I need to find the leak before any major damage happens! Any ideas?

Found the leak, the water was getting through the silicon at the rear of the shower!

interesting find. My brand new Sabre has a similar leak that I haven't been able to track down yet. I thought it was the shower door leaking, so dismantled the frame and bottom rail, cleaned it all up, added lexan, and re-installed everything, finishing with a bead of lexan inside the bottom rail. Still leaks. Like you, I find water in the drivers storage bay, but also the bedroom carpet is damp so it's weeping a ways.
So when you say rear of shower, do you mean a seam? My shower is a residential style, so shouldn't leak.

Yes, I think it's coming from the seam at bottom. It looks like water is getting under the caulking. I put a washcloth where I think it's leaking and it stopped running down into the storage bay. I hope you get yours figure out, sounds like you rebuilt your shower!
