Removing shower pan

OK. It seems that I may need to remove the shower pan in my 1984 310 MH.

Has anyone done this in a classic motorhome?

What is involved?

Is there anything other than plumbing and caulk holding the pan in place?

Looks to me like a major project. Plumbing is removed thru the compartment to the left of the shower(facing it) stubby phillips screwdriver and patience to remove plumbing hideaway cover. Fixtures can then be disconnected and removed from shower. As for the rest of the pan removal, I have never had to remove a pan, so the rest is plowing new ground as far as I am concerned. As I remember, the shower is one of the first things set as the unit is built on the line, so removal could be really involved. Andy or one of the more experienced here on the forum might give you more insight on this.

Hi,
Were you ever able to remove your shower pan? Noticed that the flooring between shower and bathroom in the hall of my 345 seems a bit 'iffy'. Thinking I probably have shower drain problem, or shower pan problem. Any insight as to if you were able to do this, and how would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Derek

Hi Derek,

I pulled the entire shower unit and some other stuff out of my coach a few weeks ago without any intention of re-using any of it, so unfortunately I wasn't taking notes along the way.
I retrieved the corner of the shower pan, w/drain attached, from the trash so you can see what's there. My rig had a very minimal kitchen sink cabinet just aft of the entrance door, with the shower abutting it. You will see the black drain pipe running down through the floor with a factory "patch" around it. This was under the kitchen sink cabinet. Where the shower pan had been, you can see a cut-out in the floor that provided clearance for the drain trap. There is plastic piece of something below this cut-out? I'm not sure if its a protective shield to screen off the exterior pull-out drawer below it, or perhaps it's an access panel to reach the drain connection from under the moho. As I recall, there was some plywood shimming beneath the pan to block it up. The outside wall of the shower stall was held to the adjacent walls with some white sealant/goop. The entire plastic unit came out as a single piece.

Good luck with this one. Hope the photos help.

Charly

Charly,
Guessing you're going to replace your shower? Or just doing away with it all together? If you're replacing, where you getting replacement parts? Lots of questions for you, I know, thanks for your help so far.
Derek

Hi Derek,

As an update to my last post, that "plastic thing" is a small cover plate that seals off the hole in the floor for the trap, from the road below.

There is an awful lot getting crammed into my 32 footer, since the rear most nine feet will be carrying two motorcycles. Believe it or not, my new shower will be even smaller than the original, and built out of stainless steel with some sort of wood mat/grill placed into the bottom. I'm trying to design it with a glass or plastic hinged door rather than a shower curtain. It will not be a luxurious shower, but on the positive side, it will be too small to fall down in. The original toilet/sink compartment on the street side is pretty much the only original piece remaining inside.

Charly.
