water standing in shower drain

Just bought a 2106 White Hawk and took it on our maiden voyage. Water stays visible in the shower drain at all times. It drains okay, just keeps water visible in the drain with the water line above the metal cross. Part of it was already corroded away when we bought it. Is that normal? Is there a fix? The water line is barely visible at the bottom of the cup.

My guess would be the trap is too high. That is causing water to stand in the drain

I would try just using a basic sink plunger, it should push the most of that little bit of water that is in the drain past the p trap

The drain should screw out but it's not easy because you'll have to hold the Ptrap while you twist it off and I bet you have almost on room for your hands underneath the drain pan. If you can get a pipe wrench under there and hold it then your friend can work from above and twist it off.
If you do change it out then buy a drain plug to keep it covered, I cover mine with a drain plug. I'd take a pic but it's 3:00 AM and Tunce would have a fit if a went outside to take a pic. now!

Checked under the tub and you are correct. The drain is directly connected to the trap. What a bad design!

Actually used a turkey baster to draw the excess up and out. Thanks!
