Unhappy 2018 31fs Shower Drain pipe broken.

New 2018 31fs the second time out. I was taking a shower and step on the drain. I heard a crack. The next thing I know there is water running out from under the kitchen cabinet. I removed the shower access panel and saw the bottom of the shower drain had broken from the drain pipe.

I wt. 225 lb. I don't think that should happen.
Anyone else have that problem

Usual around the shower drain there is no support, be inventive and create support which is removable for repair.

I have owned numerous RVs and in all but one, I have removed the access panel and reinforced the shower pan with 2X2s in strategic points...

Our old motorhome had the big bathtub/shower in it with a awfully soft floor in it. Every time I stepped in it, It creaked and cracked like I was going to fall thru the bottom.

I had a small access to it, but there was enough room to build a cardboard wall around the bottom of the tub floor - and then used the expanding foam inside of that space to fill up the cavity between the tub and floor. It worked pretty well for many years.

If I were to do it again, I would put a trash can liner in the area, and fill the foam inside of the trash liner.

I am an engineer and reinforcing the floor will be no problem once the drain is fixed. Are there any other know problems that I should be fixing before they break?? Also the tank heater wire under the coach are loss and not covered. Any recommendations on how to secure them.

When you get around to reinforcing the floor, could you document it? I've got the same issue and probably should fix it sooner then later.

We had the same problem with our 30x Greyhawk. Floor of shower is soft around the drain and 2nd trip out we had water running out our outside bins on the passenger side. We opened the inspection plate and discovered that the drain pipe was broken; we took it to our local RV and it was repaired under warranty. They found that the wrong pipe and fitting had been used by Jayco at the factory and had no explanation as to why.
Quallty control is not very good as we have had a lot of issues with the quality of the original work done by the factory. We have owned the coach for 3 months (not our first RV, but 1st Jayco) and it has been in the repair shop for 2 of those 3 months.

We own a 2018 whitehawk 26RK and have water on the floor in the bathroom after a shower. We have another week of camping in the Smokyís so until then, we will continue mopping it up with a towel. Since I canít get on my knees due to replacements, I will have to wait to bring it in. I too would be interested myronsjayco ideas in reinforcing the drain. Does anyone else have a leaky shower?

A friend of mine has a 2017 Seneca and didn't notice his shower was leaking (might have been a slow leak) anyway, it's in the repair shop getting $20,000.00 worth of floor repair - thank God it's covered by his insurance.
