Shower drain leak - 2006 International CCD

I noticed that the shower was not draining down the outlet tube, the shower waste was just draining out through the bottom panels onto the ground. I cold tell it was the shower drain water because it was warm and soap reside. So it is not the shower source water. I checked the sinks and the toilet and they all drain properly, so it is only the shower drain that has a leak.

Does anyone know how to remedy this problem?

Sprung a the same boat as above. Anyone know the best way to access a rear corner shower drain on a 1994 21'. I have looked and cannot find any way possible to get in to find my leak other than pulling off the belly pan. Just would like a rubber stamp that this is the way to go. Thanks!

Shower drain leak

Just wondering if either of you were able to fix your shower drain leak? If so, did you do it from above or did you have to remove the belly pan to get access?

My problem was definitely a cracked shower drain pipe (specifically the p-trap). I diagnosed the problem by turning on water pressure to the trailer with no leak observed. I then turned on the shower and the leak occurred, water coming from underneath the shower. I then plugged the shower drain and filled the shower basin, without leak. I unplugged the shower drain and it's was leaking. So voila, the leak was somewhere in the shower drain, but how to access the drain? I called Airstream customer service and they set me a schematic so I'd know where to cut the underbelly of the to access the shower drain p-trap (where I now suspected the problem was). I refilled the shower basin with water, unplugged the drain, and could now see the p-trap crack. I then replaced the p-trap with PVC fittings which I got from Home Depot. Retested the shower and yeah, no leaks. I then buttoned up the cut I had to make in the underbelly (with aluminum sheet metal and sheet metal screws, so I can access the shower p-trap should it leak again). Finally I sat in my garage and had a couple of beers, and stared my trailer on the street feeling good about my fix (this is the most important step&#128526.

Just amazing Airstream can't install access panels for these areas when they build it.

Good job. Hope the rain down there today is not bad for you.
