The shower in our old Keystone Trailer had decking which the shower pan was supported on top of. We had a drain leak that did not show up under the decking but the water ended up on the bathroom floor. At first I just thought maybe the shower curtain was not closed but later found out the pipe had a small crack in it. Depending on where I stepped in the shower made a difference of how much water came out. It was running under the pan but on top of the support then down the side out to the floor. I tore the whole thing out, replaced the cracked piece of pipe with a fernco, rubber coupling, and built a new better support deck for the shower. Thankfully that was the end of our shower leaks.

Is it possible that this is what's happening? Try running the shower with someone inside and have them step around the drain area. Keep an eye ynder the shower and see if there's anything happening there. Just another possiblility!!!

Im sorry that I am not explaining it very well, let me try again..our setup is the garden style tub with the shower door. It is the neo style in which there is glass on both sides of the door. I dont have an open track on the shower door, the door swings out. So I know that the leak couldnt be in the drain because the tub has sides on it at least 1 foot or higher..We have tried watching while the other one showered but still cant seem to locate the leak, We do know for sure that it isnt coming from the door itself. The water collects in the far corner where the tub meets the shower door frame, it them puddles to the point that it runs down the sides of the tub onto the floor.. We have caulked both stationary glass sides and also the door. We are just totally dumbfounded as to where the water is coming from...I will attach some pics when we get back on Sunday,,,nothing is more clear than a picture,,maybe then someone will be able to relate thanks for all your input

Blue Eyes, my latest caulk job did not fix the problem. It is very frustrating. I did remove the access panel that gets you into the drain trap at floor level and all is dry. I looked really close again yesterday after it had a chance to dry from the weekend and it looks like the aluminum seams of the door track might have a slight gap. The gasket at the bottom of the door deflects the water inward but into that track. There is a large bead of clear caulk from the factory over one of the screws for this track but the track still has hair line spaces at either end. I am going to caulk them with clear silicone caulk and try it this weekend. More reports to follow and maybe some pictures too. This is a real pain.

Fixed my leak

Ok finally got the shower leak solved. This time I caulked the small cracks that area in the aluminum frame that is at the base of the door frame. I used clear silicone. After two showers this weekend no leaks. YEAH !!!!

I am pretty sure that we caulked those also, you are taking about where the metal meets each other on the bottom track and there is a very fine crack,,correct? We did put caulking there,,with no success, will take a better look when we go again,,I am glad for your success. Maybe we can find some small place that we missed, however, we seemed to have caulked every possible place we could seem without success, yes it is very frustrating...we will keep trying however..thanks

Dont mean to scare you renegaderailfan, and its not like there is a alot of water thats pouring over the side, its just an annoying puddle that collects in the corner that you have to deal with,,Im hoping that we can find the culprit as mikesr has. Gonna keep investigating and caulking til we get it... I am sure that you will enjoy your new trailer, other than a few little quirks, we love ours.

The leak is really more annoying then damaging. As for where to look Blue Eyes, check the fine cracks that are in the metal track around the door, when where that rubber flap is located on the door. I also put a bead of clear caulk around the pane of glass in the panels that are stationary, but only along the bottom. We actually still have a slight trickle of water but no where near what it was.
