Shower Pan vs Tub Pan?

So I am hoping to remove my shower pan in our RV. When I do I want to install the

tub pan. When I do are the drain positions the same, or should I plan on

spending additional time to plumb the drian differently?


Thanks

Buy the tub with the drain that is at the same position as the shower pan. And plan on making some adjustments to make the new one work. If youre not comfortable with doing this type of work dont tackle it. Otherwise you will end up with leaky Louie.

I am fortunately very comfortable in plumbing, electrical and construction. Just have not done it with this rv shower before.

We had a 2004 Trail Cruiser and I removed the tub and completely reworked the area into a shower. Had much more room for me and was really nice, in fact sold the unit later and was asked by dealer about the "optional shower" on this model! Added benefit was I had a very stable base as I rested it on solid bed of 2x4's. No more pan flex with my 285lbs. It's an easy project.

I am worried about the tub space being much to tight vs the shower pan. I am luck my shower pan is firm and doesn't leak. The wall has become cracked which I thought I fight the entire issue this fall.
