Help!! Leak! - 2006 Bambi (Shower)


I am brand new to this. I bought a 2006 19' Bambi a few weeks ago and took it out last week.

I noticed water dripping in the rear below the shower when the someone was showering. So, I plugged the drain and ran the water - still a leak.

I let it dry out, placed the shower hose over the toilet and ran the water into the toilet. The drip started. The drip is right at a seam under the lower right quater panel.

The only thing I can think of is that it is in the wall behind the non-scald shower valve. Does anyone know if replacing the cartidge in the moen shower valve will fix this? Does anyone know where I can get a new cartridge.

Is this something bigger than that. As you can imagine this is not what I expected from my Airstream. I pretty upset and have no idea where to turn. I really wasnt expecting any major problems from such a "newer" unit.

I am in Arlington VA

Could be that someone let the trailer freeze without properly winterizing it, and the water line cracked between the faucet and the where the shower hose connects next to it. That's a likely spot for water to remain unless you blow out the shower faucet connection when winterizing.You may have to remove the small wall panel and shower door so that you see behind the shower wall and check that out.

Have you done this? Is the pipe threaded with bushings?

Is there insulation back there? What are the odds of mold being there?
