Leaking Shower

Is there a way to get to shower drain plumbing without removing shower?

What type of RV do you have? I can access waste drain of my shower from the basement storage of my 5th wheel.

The OP shows a Tiffin logo so I suspect that's the brand. I think they only make Type A MH's.

Our Dutch Stars had what looked like a vent under the pan, removing it gave a little access to the drain.

OP has a Phaeton, but if he'd post his floor plan (model) someone who has the same one may help

If the op has a QBH , the shower can be accessed through a removable panel in the bed room wall. It located right behind the shower wall, not much room to work but that's it. The shower faucet is accessed from the outside through a small door...

Sorry folks for making you guess. I have a Phaeton 40 QTH. There is no access panel in shower panel at floor or anywhere else I can find. The shower wall has kitchen cabinets behind it with no access panels at floor level. It is a 2008 Phaeton.

Did you have the wet bay floor replaced before the leak started? If so I can maybe give you some help.

In my 2001 Allegro Bus, there is an access panel for the shower and tub on the wall behind the shower. I access it through the bottom of the china cabinet in the living area with the slide out. You may find yours inside the base cabinets you describe. Mine is a framed area that you would not notice unless you pay careful attention because all the wood components match. Search for an edge that moves or a panel that feels loose in the cabinet located behind the shower. This should give you access to the shower head and faucet plumbing. My tub drain is accessed by removing the carpeted surround around the base of the tub. Feel around in the edge of the carpet for the screw heads. Remove the screws and the cover comes off. The entirety of the underside of the tub is visible.

The drain goes directly through the floor into the tank compartment that is accessed by removing the panel in the outside water inlet and sewer outlet compartment.

While yours may be slightly different, hopefully this will give you some ideas where to look further.

Just for the record I hate plumbing problems!

The first thing to check is the drain, take the drain cover up in the shower floor and look at the drain pipe. mine was broke at the shower floor after the wet floor replacement, I just used a piece of 1 1/4 sink drain pipe and put it inside of shower drain and caulked around it and no more leak.

I have a 2008 Phaeton QTH and looked all around shower and there are no access panels. I found a panel in kitchen that pulls off after you slide the pantry shelf in hallway but my arms are about 2 ft. to short. By accident outside there is a body panel in front of wheel well (curb side) that is held on by 4 screws, behind it there was what I was looking for, right behind the furnace was the plumbing. Enough said, plumbing had a bad leak and is now replaced. Thanks for all the input.
