How do I access pea trap in middle shower?

I recently purchased a 1976, 31' Soveriegn; i don't own a house, but i've got my Airstream!!!

After a month of weekends repairing fresh water lines i'm down to my last issue; I've got a leak in the shower drain. Since all of the other pea traps were ruptured due to freezing i figure i've got the same problem with the shower. How do i gain access to it? I've searched the forums and found one example of pulling off the face of the shower basin where the heater vent is located. I've also seen people gain access from the under belly? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for you help.

In my '68 there is an access hole in the bellypan under the shower. I don't know if your year is similar?

Same here. Your trap probably will be different than a house one in that it may be not as deep. If so repairing any cracks in it may be an option so don't throw it away before you know if you can easily replace it.

My guess is that you will have to get to it from the bottom. My 75 TW has no access pannel on the belly pan, but one could easily be made. Measure twice, cut once!

No there's a tank under it, you need to remove the panel (about 10x24) you step over to get into the shower, some have a heat vent in them, then you can see it all.

You need to remove a bunch of mouldings to get it out.
