Possible Shower Drain Leak

Occaisonally I have water drip at the curb side rear wheel well. It appears that its coming from a leak in the shower drain. I have unsecured the sidehinged panel that exposes the holding tanks . One stubborn screw is all that is holding the side above the wheel well from being removed. Am I on the right track to get to the hub of the shower drain. I have caulked the inside area of the drain to see if the putty has been comprimised, not sure if it is internally threaded to the ABS drain or not. 2007 Tropical T330 on Freightliner chassis

I had a similar leak and thought it was the shower drain plumbing. I searched and searched to find the source of the leak. I don't know the layout of you MH, but my bathroom sink is next to the shower. I discovered that the water supply lines to the bathroom sink faucet were leaking. I replaced the faucet and converted to Sea-Tech fittings with shutoffs. Since then, I no longer have water in the wheel well.

Is the leak grey water or fresh water?

I have water dripping near the passenger rear wheel. It is the refrigerator drain.

more analysis

Does anyone know where to get plumbing diagram for the tropical 2007. Seems that there is some ABS plumbing connection connecting all the grey water going on under the toilet which mounted on a raised box, before I try to remove toilet and dis-assemble box that it sits on to figure out this leak, now appears to be the kitchen sink drain where it connects under that box before dumping into tank. Can't see anything from compartment below

Discovery of leak

Found my occaisional leak problem. It was the hot water in connection on the back of the shower valve. Seems it did not leak till the hot water reached max temp and the expansion because of the hot water increased pressure it would leak, when water cooled it would not leak. Teflon tape and snug tightning solved the issue.Still would like to know the pipe layout under the toilet pedestal.
