Major leak

Setting up our 2015 19' Escape for the summer, and starting the pump for the first time discovered water leaking on the floor from below the closet. Could hear major water between the closet wall and the shower. Turned off the pump and got the water stopped, but cannot figure out how to access the plumbing behind the shower. The problem is at the point of the shower faucet, but no clear way to get to it.

Any suggestions???

Trailer was stored inside at a large storage facility for the whole of the winter. No sign of rodents.

All suggestions welcome.

You will get more responses from people with your exact trailer on the Escape forum, I will be interested to hear the resolution.

Already posted on the Escape Forum as well, but have often found this community is quite knowledgeable as well.

I would call Escape and talk to them. One thing I really don’t like about my Escape is the plumbing on the drivers side is hidden under the cabinets and not obviously accessible as my Casita. I assume you checked around pump already as it is easy to check. Water can leak from one spot and emerge from another.

Open the closet, remove the closet floor panel, (carefully, it's very well stapled in), and there's your PEX pipes coming out of the bathroom.

It’s one time having the optional drawer that I love is a disadvantage
