Possible leak from outside shower

After a couple days of pretty heavy rain I entered our camper. E-PRO 19FBS.
Found small amount of water in the bathroom floor. all vents closed/ no water from ceiling/vents/skylight. looked under sink and found some water. checked against wall and found a small amount. not hooked up to water as its in my driveway. went outside and realized the outdoor shower is directly behind the vanity in bathroom. Has anyone had a problem with leaking thru the box for the
outdoor shower, is it a gasket or ? , Their is no visible sealant around the box. Was thinking this may be where it came in but thought i would ask here for any ideas before I start sealing.

There have been a couple reports of outside shower compartments leaking over the past few years. I don't know that any of them were your particular model but same scenario.

If you are able to have someone slowly run water over the door and you be inside watching, you'll quickly know whether it is the culprit and whether you need to pull and reseal.

Most all exterior compartments have butyl tape under the flange that screws to the body side. It is very possible some area got missed.
