Mystery leak and Shower Removal

We have a fresh water drain leak when the bathroom sink is used in our 2005 40'FDTS. We had a mobile rv service guy come over to the park in
West Yellowstone. He determined that the leak was coming from an area he could not see and said the shower would have to be removed to get to the drain lines and that was not really an in park job. Has anyone removed a shower from this kind of coach? We will be in Bend Or. soon. Is there a good shop there?

Shower removal is not difficult, nor overly time consuming. You have to get at the (I believe) threaded base connection to the waste plumbing from underneath, which may be a strain. The upstairs stuff is easy.
Remove valve escutcheon plate from shower wall.
Remove (gently pry off) the wood trim strips around the exterior lip of the fiberglass enclosure.
Take top rail off shower glass enclosure, remove visible enclosure screws, remove glass & trim pieces, etc. Comes off easily. Store where you won't break glass.
Remove screws around exterior lips of fiberglass enclosure.
Undo waste connection.
Dance shower enclosure out of the corner.

Thanks Mike

Thanks for the input. Now, I am trying to find a schematic for the gray water drain system.

You should have 11x17 schematics in the back of your Owner's Manual with the waste plumbing. I just looked up the 2006 m.y. schematic for a 34' rig, and it shows "Adapter, 1-1/2" Trap Plug" for the shower drain adapter. the drawing looks like its a threaded fitting.
There should also be an 1-1/2" threaded trap adapter below that where the vertical section of shower drain pipe enters the top of the P-trap.

The 2005 Owner's Manual from the Tech Library shows the same 15331 part# for shower drain adapter, and 14321 part# for threaded trap adapter, so yours should be the same.
