Tub Leak

This am noticed while my two youngest boy (ages 2 and 4) were taking a bath I had a leak in the back of the trailer from where the leak was I figured it had to be the tub. Leak wasn't there only during draining but while the tub was full. After drained, no more water. Had wife watch (the leak not me, although I'm not opposed to that either. As soon as water on again leak started. Examined the whole tub area no cracks or anything. Figure it has to be from tub drain because it leaks while just holding water. Anybody have any other ideas? Does the drain come out and can I re-seal it? Hate to have to take it in as we are on trip now and will be quite a lot of the summer.

The drain ... in most cases does come out, it "unscrews" from below, there should be a rubber washer that goes around the fitting. Most likely A: The fitting has worked its way lose, B; the Rubber washer has "bunched" up or C: the washer itself is bad. (.25 part)

Had a simular issue with my shower. Thought it was leaking from valves and then possible from the drain. After 2 trips to Mike Thompson, it was determined that the plexiglass was not sealed properly and the water ran on the floor and down the side. The bad part I had to pay a diagnostic fee (150.00) to find this out and then was told it wasn't covered under warentee. Leek is gone and so is my 150.00

Opened access port to under tub. Definitely coming from the drain itself. My hands are to big to get in there and don't have right tools with me. Was wondering if I ran some waterproof silicone or caulk around it if it would patch it until we got home?

Sounds like a reasonable solution as a quick fix. Any chance of getting a pan under to catch what gets past that?

I can't really even get my arm under it. I'm a pretty big guy and I'm thinking I'll have to take it in for the simple reason I'm to big to get into it.

Went to good hardware store and talked to their plumbing guy. He recommended some stuff that would go around it and seal it and you just slice it and it peels right off when you want to repair it right. Did it last night and let it set up. Everybody used the shower this am and not one drop. Will get it fixed right when I get home but I think I'll keep a tube of the stuff in my little fix it box. Good stuff. Dryer clear and you can't even see it's there.
