Angry Leaking Shower Drain

Anyone know if using a "Wingtite for shower drain will work on older 1990 Starcraft Motorhome? Can't shower without getting the floor super wet.

Can't find a way to get to the plumbing.

The potential damage to surrounding wood structure will be pretty severe if the Wingtite drain doesn't solve the problem. What if it's the trap or a joint in the plumbing beyond the drain? I'd really try to figure out access to the area under the shower, find the leak, and repair it. If you have to cut through the outside base of stall, it can be covered with a grate or louvered vent. Then you'll have future access and ventilation of an area that might need it.

Might be a good option but it will be dependent on the condition of the pipe under the drain as it relies on a smooth pipe for the O-ring to seal. Almost a one way option as you have to have a bigger drain opening for the drain to fit into.

Good luck, keep us posted on your efforts.

X2 I had a leak which my neighbor so kindly pointed out to me. It was the lock ring on the top of the p-trap. I found access above my Genset and had just enough room to get one hand at a time in there.

Good luck!

The MH I bought (1982) had a broken p-trap. It was really a PITA to get too 1 arm @ a time, I could get 1 arm in then couldn't see what I was doing. It ended up being a felly touchy job. They use different size piping in a MH compared to the S&B's. After weeks of looking I finally found the correct P-trap.
Sorry I can't find the pictures. I was lucky that there was access too it. If you need a new p-trap and can't find them PM me and I can get you the Number.
