Water Leak

Hi so I'm new to this forum and am in need of some help. Ever since we got to this RV park we've had nothing but problems with our trailer. While everything else is hopefully fixed (fingers crossed). We just had our hot water heater repaired a few days ago so I was looking under the belly to make sure everything was OK. And I noticed a wet spot that I think I saw the other day but it never clicked. So I felt it and sure enough it's wet. I turned on the bathroom sink and went back and looked and its dripping down from the hole that the pipes feed through into the trailer. I checked under the bathroom and kitchen sink and they are OK. So the only thing it could be is where the pipes feed behind the shower. My question is how the heck do you get back there without ripping the shower out? I have not found an access anywhere. We have a 2005 Keystone Laredo. I'm trying to not have to pay another repairman bill like I did a few days ago.

When I had to access the pipes under the trailer floor I cut access openings in the underbelly material.

The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

There should be access to the shower fittings from inside the trailer. There may be a louvred panel that can be removed that covers the converter. By looking you should be able to find the correct panel. Just look for some area in back of the shower handle set .
Good luck.

If the leak only happens when the faucet is on, then it may not be the pressure lines. Am I understanding you correctly--does the water drip when the faucet is off, or on only, or all the time?
There almost always is some way to access the shower piping--as mentioned, an access panel somewhere on the wall behind the shower, close to where the shower control is.
