Question How to access shower drain?

Hi all,

I own a 2018 Coleman lantern 262BH and my shower drain seems to be clogged.

Kitchen sink drain works fine, gray water tank drains completely empty and yet the shower drain is still clogged.

Seems like the problem is in the shower drain.

How do access the shower drain?
So far I see two options :
1. The outside shower, but that means removing the factory sealant which I would like to avoid.
2. There is a small opening that was made next to the furnace vent in the bathroom. I'm not sure if this is how the unit was made or whether it was created by a previous owner, but that opening is too small for me to be able to reach the pipes. I can only look through it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I googled the Coleman 262BH floorplan, looks like water heater in the back? I'd try looking under bottom bunk bed which is how I assume you access the water heater (that's how mine is with similar read layout). Maybe you can access shower stuff which is right next to this access?

Have you tried one of those plastic snake hair drain things? Seems like your drain cover should come off so you can get to it better. Those little hair drain items work great. The stuff you get out is pretty gross though.

There is normally an access panel right in the front of the shower pan, it's about 18" long held on with 4 screws.
