I am still awaiting a response from Rod as to what I should do about my leak. The soonest I can get it repaired locally is September, but I have offered to drive it back to the factory ASAP. Sure, I could not use the shower until then, but in my current situation, I have to.

I have caulked everywhere I possibly know where to caulk inside and out, so anything short of removing the shower and tub will just be a band aid. I just took these photos after running the shower for 8 minutes. If Wildcat is ok waiting until September, I guess I am too. This sucks!

I have a Wildcat Model WCF31TS, that we named Puss. She has had a shower leak since day one, not a big leak. The service department has been tightening the hot & cold nuts, every time I brought it in, finally I took a video of where the water was coming from. When you took a shower the water would go between the faucet & the tub, running down the threads & into the compartment under the front of the tub, which has an access door of about 6 inches square, fun to work in. Finally they sent me a new factory faucet, Phoenix Diverter/Faucet # 27620, which after I installed, still leaks. I called Phoenix, which informed me that this faucet was made to be installed in a pick up truck camper, where you were away from the zinc with the shower head. What I have done, was to lift the faucet off the tub & calk around the 2 holes for the pipes, hopefully the water will run under the faucet & into the tub. I have not tried it yet, since I was late getting it done, so next time I go out I will see what happens. Funny that the factory would install the wrong faucet, maybe this was your problem, hope it helps, Boots49.

I had a leak into the basement compartment from the shower. I found the calking around the drain was the area but the real problem was a plastic little strainer that was placed over the drain to keep stuff from going down drain (hair). If somone stepped on that plastic it put pressure on the drain fittting causing the leak. Replaced sealant tightened and threw plastic stainer into trash.

The faucet sits on the edge of the tub, the walls of the shower sit on the inside of the tub, with the shower head above, when the water comes down the wall if runs, either under the faucet or through any hole on top of the faucet, ex. where the diverter comes out. This is why I figured, leave a space under the faucet, calk the two holes around the hot & cold water pipes, the water coming down the wall should go under the faucet & into the tub. I will see in a couple of weeks when I get back to Puss & take a shower. Wish me luck.
