"If it wern't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all"

First camping trip of the year was going well until I turned on the water. I have a 69 Globetrotter, 21 foot that I purchased last fall. Arrived at the Alabama State Park campsite, unloaded the tables, chairs, lights, picnic table enclosure with screen, (to keep out mosquitos), Ice chest, fishing rods, etc. you get the picture. Unhooked from truck, plugged in, hooked up toilet plumbing, and then, I turned on the water....I herd SHUT IT OFF, SHUT IT OFF! I shut it off, water was pouring out from under the shower. I am assuming I have a busted pipe of it vibrated loose under the bathroom. We had discussed redoing the bathroom prior to discovering the leak. The bathroom in the Globetrotter way to small, so we decided that the sink and mirror unit just took up space and cut down on the room needed to turn around in the shower. And then, I began reading all the problems with replacing the shower floor. I am not known for being a "fix it" guy. I'm wanting to fix the leak and if not too big of a problem take out the sink in the bathroom to allow for more room in the shower. Please tell me, is this job possible for a novice not so good virgin "fix it guy"?

If you are stuck in the campground with no water, grab a couple feet of heater hose and hose clamps, and bypass the broken pipe until you get home.
Monday, you can probably make a decision about what to do.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
