Default 1999 GULFSTREAM CONQUEST

I am having problems with the shower leaking. I read on here about some possible fixes but I have done all of them and nothing works. I have siliconed around all the seems of the shower. Does anyone have a link so I can get diagram of how the shower goes together. Thanks

Hi EOR
What symptom of leaking are you having? There is a panel that you can remove to access the drain beneath the shower. The connection is screw-on, and can come loose.
Let me know what is leaking and I'll try to help.

Default LEAK

It is coming either from the drain or a line behind the shower best to my knowledge

Where do I find this panel? The tank is directly below the shower. Do I take off the trim along the base of the shower?

EOR:

On the front of the shower is a small cover, that is held in place with several screws. It should be in alignment with your drain. Remove the cover, and you should be able to access the drain for the shower.

I will look. I don't remember a panel but I have never taken of the 4" trim off around the base of the shower. Thanks

Depending on where the shower plumbing is located, sometimes the access can be from the bedroom, etc.

I checked the bed room and took the trim off on the bottom of the shower. No access panel. Any other ideas short of removing the insert to get at the plumbing?

I'm all in. If there is no panel to allow you access to the drain in the shower, I do not see how you can remove the insert without busting up the pan.

Is there any panel on the outside of the coach, or in one of the compartments? GS had to put the drain in somehow.

Keep us posted, this will be a learning experience.

I finally found them. One is underneath in a compartment. Concealed very well I might add. The other is in a cabinet on the back side of the shower. The wood match so good didn't notice it. I have taken it off and hope I found a bad faucet. Thanks for all the help. I will let you know if it works.

It was a bad faucet. I had to twist myself into positions I haven't done in years. But it is fixed.

EOR:
You should plan on tightening all water connections, and sewer connections, about once a year. Just to make sure they do not jiggle loose when you travel.

Also, be careful about so called "safe" RV parks when hooking up to their water. I use a "whole house" filter from Home Depot, in a stand made for the more expensive filter sold by Campingworld (I bought the stand at CampingWorld as well). The Home Depot filters are $10 for 3; filter out finer particles than the RV filters, and include a carbon layer to filter out chlorine.

Yes, the TM comes with a house filter, and I added another one under the sink on the drinking water line. Triple filtered drinking water, but well worth it.

We have stayed in places where the water is so full of sand and silt that you have to change the filter every other day. So much cheaper to change the Home Depot setup than the expensive RV filters.

Oh, got to rambling. Put a pressure regulator after the outside filter, or at least on your water line. You will thank me someday.

Funny u should mention the regulator. A friend of mine just told me yesterday that he hooked up to the line and it has so much pressure it blew the lines off the back of his toilet. I will be doing that.

I have been using a good filter for some time. Thanks again for all the help.
