Found the leak! Don't think the drain and p-trap are suppose to have room between them. Haha. Click image for larger version

They must have just not tightened it enough at the factory.

Thanks so much for helping me out everyone. I'm sure there are more questions to come in the future.

That will do it every time. Glad you got it fixed before any damage occurred. You will want to leave that access panel off and put a fan pointing in there to get it dried up. Keep an eye on it after your next travels in case it pops off again. Looks like the pipe coming off the drain is to short, you might need a longer extension.

If the insulation got wet, there's no way it will ever dry with just a fan.

My 26DBH is in the shop currently because one of the fresh water "T"s let go and dripped all last summer (it's first summer) and filled the cavity with water, also soaking the insulation. They have to slice the underbelly, pull it all, dry it out, make the repair, replace the insulation and they make a special underbelly tape to repair the slice.

Everyone should look under the tub if you have a side panel to see the p-trap drain area. Standing in my tub, the 'floor' by the drain seemed to have a lot of give. Looking under the tub at the side panel, there was a support board attached to the bottom of the tub, but...... the board was not attached to The Floor, as it was hanging free over the hole cut in the floor for the drain plumbing. Dumb Axxs carpentry from FR. I put a support board across the 'hole' and attached to the board coming down from the tub. Tub is now solid at the drain area.

X2, I added 2x4 legs and plywood to mine through the access hole.

We had a problem with ours leaking out from under the tub when showering. The culprit was no sealant along the top of the trim around the tub. A little silicone fixed it.

Turns out that was exactly what our problem was as well....that guy must have been on vacation the week mine was done.

We had the same issue. Tub drain was barely on. Found water coming from under the tub. So, removed the access panel, reached in and tightened it. No more leak!

mine was leaking too, when I was out camping solo with my 3 year old.... p trap came loose. I cut the liner about 6 inches to drain the water. Took it to the dealer, they installed a longer drain pipe and replaced the insulation all under warranty.

Our Cherokee 254Q has been leaking around the glass shower enclosure from day one. At the dealer right now for the 4th time to fix it, and now there is a smell coming from the shower. Their "fix" is to reapply sealant, to no avail; I told them to rip the damn thing out and repair it properly/replace it. Getting more than a little PO'd at these guys.
