Leaking shower supply

Looked around and didnot see problem like mine. While winterizing i can hear water running ,like its behind the shower. Also, water running out underneath the shower. Unit is an '81 international. It has a rear bath. Inside the door to the dump valves, i can see water dripping from the bottom of the underside of sink enclosure. Anyone know how to get to these plumbing lines? Any help greatly appreciated.

If your trailer is like ours, all the water lines will be above the floor, inside the trailer where, in theory, they can be kept warm.

Look at floor level, against the walls, for the supply lines. Look for some access to the back side of the shower control valves in the bath area. If you're lucky, you have a loose fitting on the shower hot or cold valves. If you're unlucky like we were, you have a split water line that the PO sorta failed to mention.

Try to find access panel for behind your shower water control valve. Most likely your leak is going to be from somewhere around that valve. No idea if your '81 has copper or plastic piping, whichever, if trailer wasn't winterized, and had water in the system during freezes, you've got a split supply line.
Just be glad you're catching it now, you'll be able to get repairs accomplished during off-season.
Good luck, Derek
