Shower leak question

We have a 2011 international signature 27fb the shower is separate from the toilet/sink area. On the last night, last shower of our last outing water began leaking from under the shower into the hallway. I asked my husband if he had turned the shower head so that the water was running down the wall onto the faucet handle, he said yes, so I thought maybe the water was making its way behind the faucet handle and coming out under the shower and into the hallway. It doesn't appear to be sealed with silicon or anything. And the water is definitely not leaking from the shower door. Anybody have this issue? I really hope its not something else.

On our 2015 28FC, we had a leak around the shower and I pulled the access plate off the back of the shower to examine. Turned on the water and all looked fine around the valve. However, when you would press the button on the shower handle to get a stream of water, it leaked tremendously from the connection behind the shower. Easy fix in that the mothership had used a too thick of shim and the connection didn't seal completely. On yours, it could be the connection just loosened up over time from use. Simple to tighten and no more leak. On ours, I put a thinner shim in and it then mated well. No more leak. Only occurs when actual shower handle is turned on. Just having water on in shower it will not leak.

Don't know if that's your issue, but might be a starting place.

We had this same issue soon after we bought our used Airstream.

Fortunately, it was as easy as re-caulking the shower. The water was leaking through the crack half way up the wall (image attached).

We used GE Silicone II.

Hope this helps!

Mine was leaking between the interior plastic flashing and the shower door frame. I removed the flashing and show door framed and resealed.
