Shower leaking under shower on floor

We have a new Cedar Creek cottage 40cck. Have had it 3 months. Noticed a line of water on the floor at the bottom of the shower unit. Checked caulking and seals, cleaned the shower door tracks and dried everything. Tried it again and more water. Installed a shower curtain. Used shower. No water on doors and no water on inner most track in door assembly but still water on the floor. What could it be?

Take a close look at the seal around the drain.

We lifted the screw down drain cover off and checked the seal. Looked okay but we poured some water around it and then stepped into the shower to see if any of the water leeched out and it didn't. ⁉️

We had something similar to this in our 38FL shortly after taking delivery. I ended up re-caulking the door frame for the sliding door both inside and outside. I eventually cured it, after several attempts, by pulling out the old sealant from the interior corners at the bottom of the sliding door frame (actually in the runners for the doors) and re-sealing them.

We'd also re-sealed the drain after a few months because I found a small amount of water leaking out after I'd gone in to the inspection door looking for something else.

I had also found a hairline crack in the corner of the shower floor - apparently a frequent problem with the CC showers caused when they are installed (according to the dealer). FR paid for that to be heat treated by a specialist company who work with fibreglass. Now, looking at it, you would never know the crack had been there.

Thanks Hutch,
We are going to try everything you mentioned but I am still so confused. I dried the tracks, used the shower curtain, and when I got out the shower doors were dry. However the outside door track had water in it and then the water started coming out at the floor again. Doesn't even seem possible.

Is there a small access panel on the front of the shower pan?

Water seepage is extremely difficult to source. Ask any big boater! Re seal everything and as mentioned get a magnifying glass, put pressure on the shower floor and look for hairline crack. Got to be coming from some place!

Hopefully you have access to the underside, it sounds like the drain nut needs to be tightened.

Thanks Telstar! I will check to see if we can get to that. It has to have something to do with the drain or the fiberglass bottom of the shower because everything else is dry. Thanks again.
