Shower Pan

My 200QB has a very nice shower. My only concern is the floor (pan). It is very soft and squishy. Are the shower pans supposed to be soft ?
Also my awning retracts very very slowly. It needs to be helped with retracting by pushing on the aluminum arms. Any ideas of why ? My batteries and new....
Thanks.

My 2018 Kodiak Cub also has a flexible floor in the shower. It tends to cause me to step carefully and softly.

Electric awnings typically require special lubricants on the sliding anchor points. The manual may specify the special lubricant and how often it is to be done.

The shower pan in my 2017 201qb is also soft. I opened the front access panel and I can see why. I’m going to ad more supports.

thanks Bob. I dont think I have an access panel. Soft pan seems like a design flaw. Maybe they have good reason but I wonder why.....

Our Denali had a problem with the shower pan. It was replaced by Camping World. That pan than shifted about 1 inch breaking the pan around the drain. Camping World replaced the shower pan again and put support under it. Its working good - NOW.

Again I wonder if the "soft pan" is supposed to be that way....?....

Why would the factory install a squishy floor ?

Paul. I found awning lubricant on ebay for $24. I wonder if AT 50 aircraft corrosion spray is the same type of "stuff"... I have cans of the aircraft spray. I plan on trying it out next trip...... thanks.

Builder probably didnt put any mortar under the pan during install. Keep an eye on the drain pipe for leaks due to the repeated flexing.

builder was Dutchman. It is a 2015 Kodiak QB 200. I read that other owners have the same "squishy" pan.
