Shower leak, 2017 Wildcat 29RLX

First trip out. When you take a shower the right side in the storage belly leaks from re back of the box that houses the water in, cable, ect.. Now would best guess be around the shower drain or what?? To get from dealer, I took pictures and will be sending them to him. Looking for a fix so the rest of the trip goes smooth Thanks, Jim

Is there any way to look under the shower. Had a leak in mine, opened the screw hatch and found the elbow had a small crack from no support under it. Lowes to the rescue.

Looks like we got it fixed.
Yesterday we just worked on the drain, I removed the grate and sealed around the area of the drain pipe and tub....Just tested it, no leak...I'll consider it fixed tomorrow.

Buy some stiff foam insulation and stack under shower base to firm up.

When we bought our trailer in 2014, we find our leak was due to the shower drain never having been connected to the trap pipe. The alignment was perfect,but the two were not screwed together. We were three showers in before water began dripping under the trailer.

Shower leak in Freedom Express

Noticed a water drip at the outside rear of my Freedom Express where the shower is located. Pulled the access panel at the bottom of the corner shower and found water collecting in the corner below the faucet under the shower pan. Caulked the seam where the shower pan meets the side panel with no fix. Pulled the faucet unit and found a loose hose connection on the cold water side. Tightened the connection and put it all back together with a little clear caulk on the seams. Fixed Is it so difficult for factory reps to ensure all plumbing connections are tight before delivery????

To fix the shower pan flex, you need to access the area under the shower through the access panel.
On my old unit, I cut pieces of plywood that wood fit through the access panel. I then cut small pieces of 2 x 4 ( about 3" tall ) and wedged the 2 x 4's between the bottom of the plywood and the floor.
Firmed it right up.

So much anger! Good luck finding any RV manufacturer who meets your criteria for caring. They are all having record sales. Must not be too many unhappy folks.....
