My issue was the P-trap was loose and water would run into the kitchen floor and basement floor. I pulled down the storage wall and found that the plastic piece coming from the shower drain was loose plus it was cut too short. I suppose with the road twisting and general movement it worked loose.
I bought a new straight piece and cut it about 3" longer to go into the P-trap then hand tightened everything as well as I could. It's a bitch getting your fat hand into the saw cut hole accessing the shower drain. I was about to cut out a bigger hole but ended up just leaving the wall down for my next trip. Luckily all is well and no leaks now. I've since felt confident enough to reinstall the wall.

I had exactly the same problem last year in a 2005 Class C rental unit I bought. Was able to reach through and tighten it, and expect to have to redo that yearly.

Mine leaked anytime water was draining from the kitchen/bathroom sinks as they all go through that location to get to the grey water tank.

I dont have an access door in the coach and I haven't slid under to see what I might have access to there. No water on the concrete under the coach though. Seems like that is a positive. I cant thank all of you enough.

Had the same problem on a motorhome and it was the faucet. The water was leaking out the back of the faucet, bad valve or seal. Changed faucet and problem fixed.

On our old Sandpiper, it was the drain leaking. When you stepped in the shower, the koan would give a bit letting the drain leak. Upon inspection, they used no plumbers putty between the flange and the tub. I fixed it the way it should have been done. No leaks are acceptable.

Not sure on the location for the Cottage but on my 5er there is a small lockable door on the outside of the rig very close to the location of the shower. If the access is like most there is only a very small space (and usually at a completely obscure angle) in which to do anything. You almost have to be double jointed.

We have a 2015 REV RB. The entire panel below the shower door can be removed with a few screws. Also if you have any vents there, such as heat duct vent, try removing that to be able to look in. We have a glass shower door and the aluminum frame leaked where it was sealed to the shower.

It really made a difference if one of the corners of the coach was lower. The front passenger corner lower, made it leak at the front of the shower.
