Possible to crack the shower pan?

Has anyone ever dropped anything heavy on the shower pan of their Newmar and cracked it? If so what does it take to repair/replace something like this? And what would you do for showers until it could be taken care of?

The other day I let the shower head (on the end of a 6 ft flex hose) slip out of my soapy hands and hit the pan pretty hard. Really scared me, but so far no sign of any cracks. Even a large bar of soap can sound pretty loud when it hits the pan.

It can be repaired according to Newmar. I know a guy that had his just crack. To replace it is a pretty good job, you have to remove the shower walls to get the pan out.

The Bay Stars had problems with just standing in shower causing cracks because of poor support under floor of shower.
Your shower floor would be thicker and dropping what you did may sound loud but not enough to crack it
.If you have a vent on bottom of shower floor lip remove and look at the support under your shower floor.

No vents or opening at the edge of the shower pan (like was on my previous coach, an Itasca Meridian) which can be removed to see under the pan.
No idea how to see under the shower pan on a 2015 Newmar Dutch Star 4018.

No vents or opening? How do you repair the drain plumbing if needed?

That's what I keep asking myself, along with many other items practically impossible to reach.
