Exterior Shower Leak

Hello all, Got a tough one. Just returned from Mystic Conn. We have a rear bath 24 Argosy 1976. After using the shower we noticed that the floor just outside the bathroom is slightly wet and more disturbing there is water visible under the trailer. It seems that the drain line has either seperated or broken? Don't really know. Any ideas? Also where can one get a plumbing schematic for an old Argosy? Any Help would be appreciated. Thanks, George

My '77 Ambassador had similar symptoms but it was the shower selector valve. The water was running out of the assembly, up behind the knob and back down the pipe onto the wooden floor. A Moen replacement insert fixed the problem.

I had same kind of problem. Turned out to be the copper line that goes from the valve to the shower hose connection was split from freezing.

I think you guys are suggesting that it's the water valve that's leaking. I kind of assumed it was the drain line. I wiil investigate further. The argosy just has a single outlet faucet in the shower area, with a flexible hose attachment for a shower head. I don't think it leaks with just the water hooked up and turned on but I will check.

Mine has a typical shower arrangment, hot handle, cold handle a a diverter handle to switch the flow from the faucet to the shower head, just like in a home tub. The diverter valve was leaking and only when the shower was being used.
You should hope that's the culprit - it's an easy fix.

Wow that's pretty cool. What a difference a year makes. Mine is just a shower, no tub, but to use it you have to scew the flexible hose onto the bottom of the faucet outlet, turn on hot and cold to taste. No diverter valve, no internal plumbing going up to a shower head. I suspect a broken drain line. What's odd is that for the plywood floor to get wet, the leak must be pretty high. Like the drain outlet itself. I'll know better this weekend after a few hours lying in the driveway.
