Anyone having leak in shower?

My wife showered right after I did the other night and she then noticed some water on the floor right in front of the access panel to what I assume is the shower's plumbing. She guessed it at half a cup. Anybody have any similar experience or have a suggestion as to what I might do myself, as it's well over a hundred miles each way to a Jayco dealer.

Its likely in the drain or you would be getting water all the time. Remove the panel and run the shower. Use a flashlight and check for a drip. Likely a loose trap.

Might also be the seal from the drain. If you don't find it, have wife stand in shower with water running. If the seal between the drain and tub is bad, deflection caused by someone's weight nearby might open it up and cause leakage.
Good hunting.

Check the seal around the bottom of the shower stall where it mates to the shower floor pan. Mine leaked while showing, and ran under the track and side glass panel. Laid a bead of bathtub caulk around the bottom of the enclosure, and it fixed it.

I noticed if my TT was level water would run down the wall of the shower and pool on the top of the tub and then spill out onto my floor. I glued a thin piece of vinly stripping on the top of the tub and now it diverts the water back into the tub and not onto the floor.

I noticed this on mine also, now I setup with the nose a little low and the water runs to the enclosed side of the tub instead.
Good luck and Happy camping!

I calked but haven't used it yet. Will find out if the caulk plus your idea works tomorrow or the next night. Thanks.

Showered last night. Don't know what worked, but no sign of water where it didn't belong, unlike the fifth of Tequila that broke in the pantry yesterday. I'd note the nose was a tad low, 3/4 bubble off level.
