The Flex of the Pic are the (Entire Floor) not just the drain area. The (2) Main Shower Pan supports were in (Mid Air/NO support) the UNIT Floor down to the Belly was (CUT OUT)! The make up of the shower pan is (bottom of pan/1/2 inch Styrofoam pad/3/16 inch luan board) with 2x2 stub wood supports that are (Supposed??) to be supported by the Floor(The Floor has been CUT OUT for the Trap,BIG Hole!)

I don't doubt you had that situation Youroo. I just don't think that exists in our RV.

Also after Much (Research) the amount of (Cushion) is dependent on the amount of (Weight) exerted on the pan floor! Youroo!!

I always wondered if there was an unknown weight rating of these pans. I myself used to be 230, and it flexed quite a bit. Then I walk around a campground and see someone quite larger than me, and can't help but wonder if the pan would / could hold up. No offense to anybody, I'm just wondering what the pans were really designed / rated for. Bunks, at least most of them have some sort of weight rating from 150 to 300, and I don't really trust those ratings.

My '12 Sanibel 3500 has a layer of 1/2" foam pad between the shower pan and the sub-floor. After a year of full timing the pan cracked due to the flex.

I would guess the OP has the same type foam.

I'll get a new pan and reenforce the area with epoxy and fiberglass or maybe even carbon fiber so it doesn't do it in another year of use.
