can't find the leak

38" fleetwood bounder diesel pusher. the rear portion is a bath with a corner
shower. enclosure is a 1/4 circle glass with sliding arched doors.
i have a leak along the enclosure where it meets the floor on one side and a corresponding leak where the enclosure meets a door on the other side.
recaulked everything i can think of and still leaked. next took off the plumbing access doors that are in the angled corner of the surround and took a look at the plumbing.....dry. bummer. so..my only other idea is the drain. i take a good hard look down the drain and see standing water. now the only reason i would think i'd see standing water is if there is a p trap. but thinking since shower water goes into grey water...probably no p trap.
anybody help me out here!

The shower has a trap, mix up some food color and water pour and down the drain. if no leak is found, block drain and pour mix around drain to see if shoe is leaking.

Ya.. pretty much has to be the drain at this point.. if its a screw in strainer, I'd bet the gasket is bad.
