Shower Leak

Hi All,

I was taking a shower in my 2007 International 25SS and my fiancé happened to be outside and found that there was a substantial stream of water coming from beneath the trailer. It seems like the leak is actually outside of the large pipe which I think is the black tank anyway so the shower should be going to the gray. Wondering if anyone has ever seen this type of situation?

Video attached

Thanks in advance

Check the pee-trap under the shower. There is an access plate in the bellypan that will allow you to gain access. They do work loose

There will be an access panel inside the AS to check the P trap. Any chance this is freeze damage? P traps can crack if you don’t have antifreeze poured in.

Same thing happened wife taking shower and was walking past outside of 2006 Safari trailer with a friend who pointed out water hitting the ground underneath. Well we didn’t winterize it (i mean we do live in Houston) but the pipe below the shower to the grey tank had cracked due to freezing. Not much protective insulation in Airdtreams around that area.

Shower Leak

I had the same trailer - 2008 25SS. My P-trap was not correctly fastened from the factory and it leaked. Over time it got worse. $6k in in repairs by the time we found the problem, as we had to remove everything from the rear of the trailer (including the shower) and replace the floors.

The belly pan on that trailer does not have an access panel - you will need to drill out all the rivets on the rear belly pan panel and drop the entire panel.

Once you are in there check the insulation it will likely need to be replaced due to mold.

However before you do all that it’s worth removing the white side panel / narrow+tall shower wall next to the shower/toilet inside first, to check that the valve or shower connection is not leaking. Cut away the caulk and remove the 6 or 7 screws holding the side panel in place to gain access to the valve assembly. Run the shower and make sure no water is spraying back there.

There are only 2 places that leak can come from if it’s happening while taking a shower - the valve or the P-trap assuming the ptex lines are not split due to freezing...

Wulfraat, Sorry you had to go through that. Did AS help with your repair? How long did the leak go unnoticed?

Shower Leak

We found the leak after seven years on the road. We only discovered it because the bed and linoleum had been removed to lay down new bamboo flooring. So well outside of any warrantee period. We had Timeless Travel Trailers and Denver do the repair… They did a world-class job.
