Leak

I have a 2020 jayco redhawk 24 B. Iíve taken 2 other camp trips before this 3rd trip. I showered last night and noticed a water leak at the corner next to the left side behind the toilet. Itís not the toilet or bathroom sink. It ran out to the kitchen, at least two soaked towels. It must be from the shower? Itís still under warranty and will take it back to the server Dept at the dealership. Any ideas? It did lightly rain for about an hour but I think itís the shower. Thereís a cut out behind the toilet but nothing feels wet. No caulking in the shower, I guess thatís normal. How do they check? Such a small area.

There should be an inspection panel under your shower. Remove it and look for a drain leak. Many Jayco Shower floors are not supported properly and when the drain area is stepped on, while one is showering, the floor flexes and breaks the PVC drain pipe, which causes a leak. If this is the case with yours, you need to fix the PVC pipe and the floor needs to be supported in the area that is flexing. It is an easy fix, if you are at all handy with wood working tools.

Thatís exactly what the service Dept where I bought it said. Itís under warranty so Iíll let them try. Iíll mention to add supports cause it does feel spongy, like Iím going to fall through. I see the little door trap but would you have to remove the pan? Yes for a woman Iím pretty handy and have most tools

I have an Entegra Odyssey, essentially a Jayco, and took it in for servicing shortly after to have them fix a toilet leak. I also mentioned that the shower flooring was a bit too ďspongeyĒ and they added support there as they noted it was insufficient. Seems like a common issue.

I answered your question in that other thread, but I'll post it here again:

I've had two issues of water leaks in my bathroom. The first one was that the bottom shower track wasn't caulked where it sits on the shower pan inside, and water was leaking under the track and on the floor. I had to put a bead of caulk all along the inside track and up the two side walls to stop it.

The second thing I experienced was the drain fitting under the showerpan broke, and flooded the rig. This was due to crappy support Jayco put in. Do you notice how spongy the shower floor is at the drain fitting? There was limited plywood and support, which caused the fittings to move and crack.

I had to cut open the area where that access panel is, and completely rebuilt the supports and replace the drain fittings.

Here's what that area looks like, missing the necessary support. This was my rig before I redid the entire area:

Wow great pics! You made a much bigger hole than what was there. I wonder if the service Dept will do that?
Well whatever it takes. Thank you so much

Yeah, there wasn't much choice to get access in there to do all the repairs. I made a bigger access cover plate, to cover the larger hole.

I contacted Jayco, and sent them these pictures of THEIR issues, and how I had to fix them and asked them for some of the wall covering material, so I could match the old cover plate. They blew me off... Nice, huh?

On mine, Jayco glued the tailpiece to the chrome strainer right to the trap, so there was no way to separate them. That's why I cut out the complete trap, and installed all new: trap and tailpiece. I got all the parts at Home Depot.

You can use teflon tape on joints with no problem, if it's a threaded connection. That will work. If it's a PVC pipe type connection, you'll need glue.

That's what broke on mine too, and there's no way fix it, since it's glued to the trap. That's why I cut out that trap, and put in a new one with a conventional tailpiece. This way, if there's any issues, it can be taken back apart.

Dang, I had to add supports to the edge of my plywood. The edge of your plywood was on the other side of the shower. That's garbage. Nice fix though.

You lost me on that. The edge of mine was on the other side? I don't understand.

I made a cardboard template of the missing plywood, then cut a new piece, and glued it in, before adding 3 more supports.

I was facetiously exaggerating the shoddy work. Mine was about 1/2 the size of yours and required no plywood.
