sc226rbds shower leaking

Over the weekend we noticed when I got out of the shower there is water coming from a belly skin opening (spray foam) by the dump handles. Anyone else have this problem? Is it an easy fix? By the dealer of course should be a warranty issue.

Yes, our black water tank had broken free and leaked between the floors on the first trip out. So much for quality control. Dealer fixed. I hope for good.

Were you traveling with the black tank full?

Check the drain and trap underneath the shower, and the putty seal at the drain. Fittings could be loose, shower floor flexing allows movement, you may need to add wooden blocks to stiffen the floor.
there should be a vent or access to see under there

that fixed my problem which was similar

Mine leaked at one time....it was the shower valve leaking dripping down the pex tubing and leaking out the bottom. 20 bucks later.....and 20 minutes.....new shower valve and no leaks.

No, not full in fact empty. However, it is entirely possible that I may have to travel with it full if I stay where there is no dumping station in future.

My under belly is covered and there is foam coming out. I don't see a trap door to check it but I am having water drip from the foam insulation. Full disclosure it was the first time I had ever filled my fresh water tank but also my gray water got fu without me knowing and I found water standing in the shower. I drained some gray water out and at that point noticed a drip. Not sure if it's a fresh water problem or and over flow problem. But I will look closer for a way to see. My shower floor does flex being I'm a pretty good size guy.

The trap frcamp was referring to is actually the shower trap found inside the trailer directly below the shower base. In my case there's a grill cover which when removed will reveal some furnace ducking and the shower drain connections.

If your set-up is similar look for some standing water that might help localize your leak.
