Shower in 31FK

We have a 2016 31FK and have noticed when taking a shower the portion of the shower floor closest to the drain is soft and feels like there is nothing underneath it (it even sinks down a bit when standing there). The other half feels very sturdy. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this and if it is normal?

Thanks for any info!

yup.. mine is like that.. just around the drain. I refrain from stepping that close to the drain for fear of breaking the floor. I believe they're all like that. Or at least I've read several reports of it.

The shower pan in my rig has a couple of spots that aren't supported very good from underneath so it flexes a bit. There's an inspection opening next to the drain that I've opened and done a look-see. No water, just poor support.

Mine was spongy ever since new I didn't think anything of it since every MH I went into at RV shows had a soft floor. But just so my luck would have it as soon as my warranty was up I developed a leak coming from the shower. I found that the P trap was leaking below the shower drain. The pipe was actually being crushed between the shower floor and the sub floor when anyone was in the shower thus causing the pipe to leak. Lucky I caught it in time. I was able to make a new p trap and shortened up the drain to to allow more clearance. I also discovered why the floor is so soft. The shower is supported by a plywood strip that is about half as wide as the shower. The plywood is then supported by 1x3's. The reason why they did not support the full shower floor is because the heating duct work and a wiring harness run under the shower. I was able to stiffen mine up with a few 2x4 supports placed under the plywood.

When you fixed your drain and added support to the tub, did you do it all through the little inspection door or did you remove the entire panel under the shower? We did puts some supports through the inspection door, but could do a much better job if the front panel removed easily.

I had a stress crack on my shower pan due to a soft floor. My dealer replaced the pan and reinforced the floor. All under warranty.

I have a 31 DS and I am not happy with the "soft floor". I feel that I want to shoot some spray foam in there. I read about the problems of shooting too much and have chickened out.
any thoughts?

One of the first things we did in our 2016 Class C 31xl...asked the dealer to reinforce the floor near the drain. We had a large list of things to tweak and that was the only thing they did successfully so we hope it is right!
Our entire family is VERY tall and we don't want to fall through the floor. They brag about the weight support in the bunks over the cab...why in the world don't they take care of it in the shower?!?

Exact same issue in our '17 29MV. Thought it was just our unit, but sounds like that's the design. I'll ask the dealer about reinforcing it.
