Shower Leaks

I have a leak in the shower of my '96 Itasca Spirit 24. There is an access panel under the shower that has allowed me to realign and tighten the drain pipes that fixed a leak when I first got it. But everything is straight and tight and it is leaking again so I feel the need to remove the shower base to find the problem. So my question is there any tips or tricks for removing the shower pan ? It looks pretty cut and dried just remove the screws and lift it up. But I have learned things don't always work the way I think they are going to in these little houses. Thanks in advance.

Is a new one available in case you have a wreck? Are there any cracks in the pan or maybe a leak at the drain? Good luck.

Luckily enough the pan is in one piece. No cracks or leaks there. Gotta be in the plumbing. I think "someone" forgot about not stepping on the drain. And if I screw the pan up when I take it out ( I don't plan to but. . . ) I have a buddy that does fiberglass and if I give him the old one, even in pieces, he can make me a new one. Just wondered if any one had gone thru it before.

Rustoleum makes a similar product to Leakender 2000. I bought the clear kind, it will stop non-pressurized leaks.
Could be it's as simple as replacing the gaskets in the connections though.

Unless you're sure it's leaking at the drain, I'd check that the shower regulator is not leaking from it's water supply fittings or from a crack in it's body. We had a supply fitting that split and was leaking down the backside of the shower pan making it look like a drain leak. I wrapped the fittings with toilet paper and found the leak on the cold side.

I like that idea of using toilet paper to point out leaks. But you're right it very well could have been the supply water leaking. What I did was run water thru both the hot and cold feed into a bucket and not let it go down the drain. When I did that no leak. When I ran the shower normally and let the water go down the drain I had a leak.
