Go back on the internet and look at dealers selling your type rig and you will see what i mean. Glad you fixed the leak. Just goes to show you not all are the same.
Thanks for the research! I believe the pan was installed incorrectly as other have noted. But yeah, it probably was a different group of installers at that time and that was how it was assembled at Salem.
I can see how the pan should be behind the wall with my unit. During my PDI we fired up the shower but I am pretty sure the water was aimed at the drain. Was not until I did my "yard camp" that I noticed it. The silicone I applied is suffice and works so all is good (you have to look for it).
That was then and this is now. I still love this little guy and I have done a lot of mods to it via this forum and others. I am ready to upgrade to a 5th wheel and I have no issues letting the next buyer know everything
about this unit. It is so much more than what it was. I had a couple little issues that I took care of myself. The person that buys this will be getting a quality unit that I will stand by.
Thanks again for your research. Good information to know.
