Water leak

We have a 2015 Voltage 3605 toy hauler. We've noticed that the carpet in the bedroom adjacent to the shower gets wet. We don't know if the shower drain is cracked or what the problem might be. Since the shower sits flush on the floor any ideas about how the area can be reached? Is there a chance that the shower head is leaking behind the wall? Also if the shower floor around the drain is "soft" does that mean the floor may have to be replaced?

My 3950 has access to the shower drain through the basement.

It could also be the water manifold. On mine, it's really cheap plastic and it leaked.

It's the thing behind the taps that the water goes through - under the cover.

Also check the shower stall itself where it meets the wall. I had to run a bead of caulk around the stall against the wall because water was going behind it.

On ours the shower door track wasn't caulked next to the vanity, leaked out onto the floor. Caulked it fixed it.

We found that we can get to the shower drain and see the shower hoses from inside the storage area. We haven't taken off the wall yet. By looking it doesn't seem possible that either of those leaks would cause the bedroom carpet to get wet. As far as it leaking at the top of the shower enclosure I would hope that we're not wild enough when we bathe to cause water to leak there. Now there is a possibility that the enclosure may need to be caulked next to the vanity. If that's leaking I can see where it could get the carpet wet in the bedroom.

My 3950 has a "door" similar to a marine hatch that allows access to the back of the faucet. I chased a water leak for six months before I realized it was coming from back there. I ended up removing the whole shower (walls and floor pan), installing push fittings that have a shutoff and putting new seals into the assembly. Put everything back together and all seams good...this was 18 months ago and I full time.

Is the hatch behind the bedroom TV or where?
