shower leak

This past weekend I was showering in my 2015 jayco when people outside noticed that an excessive amount of water was leaking out under my trailer. It was clearing coming from the tub draining. While my wife showered I watched where the water was coming from and it was leaking alot around the top of my black tank. After 3 showers the grey reads empty so does anyone know what's causing this?

You gots a broken pipe from the shower to the grey tank.


Since it's still under warrantee, a trip to the dealer is in order.


Unless you feel like dealing with hidden PVC connections while lying on your back...

That's not ideal. Do you happen to know will I cause any water damage inside the trailer if I continue to use it until it gets fixed?

Then, laying on your back is called for.

Turn the water on low flow in the shower and get under there with a hand light. Chase the water flow back until you find the broken pipe or water coming out from between floorboards.

If it is a pipe/connection, buy some flexy pipe wrap and seal it until a proper repair can be made.

If the leak is inside the trailer, then try and find the access panel, remove it and see if you can find the problem. Tape, tighten, realign....

Could be as simple as a "P" trap that came loose. Had that happen on our 08 SENECA.

It appears like the PVC has come off the tub drain. I pit a screwdriver in the drain and can move the PVC pipe back and forth and there appears to be a gap between PVC and the tub drain

Get in there. Get your hands wet and dirty.

Disassemble. See how the gaskets and compression nuts are supposed to work. See if something is broken (jagged edges).

Replace broken pieces (Home Despot or Lowest) will have something close enough. DO NOT tell them it is for an RV!!!!!!

Reassemble. Tightening all parts properly: As tight as you would put on a bottle cap to keep the fizz in.

Had the same problem on a previous RV. The drain pipe fitting that connected to the shower drain was loose. Tightened up and all was well.

Well a $2.00 part just caused me a lot of water damage in the belly of my trailer. The plastic nut from the P-trap to the drain was broken off cause the tub to leak under the trailer. By the looks the pooled water and damage under the trailer I would say for a long time. Add this to the already long list of warranty issues with this Jayco.
