I have a 2002 Winnebago Journey, the shower pan is cracked. It is cracked right where the lip angles down. I have tried to caulk it but everytime you put weight in the shower it opens right back up. I priced out the shower pan and it is over $500 just for the part to replace.

I was thinking of other ways to repair it. One thought is to use roll on truck bed liner, it has the grit to create a non slip surface, while sealing it with rubber. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

REMOVE THE PAN IF POSSIBLE AND FIBERGLASS IT.

from underneath obviously? You do not think the bed liner would work?

There should be an access panel to get under the pan to get at the drain pipe. You may be able to shim something up under the pan.


Full timing it since July 2012

YEP, I called the factory and they told me to use fiberglass cloth and resin.. the big BUT I was able to access the crack from the bottom from the front panel. This was a while ago so if I recall I first ruffed up the surface and put a coat of resin on the underside and then when dried put a couple of coat of resin impregnated fiberglass cloth. The BIG THEN I was able to put Styrofoam in the corner for reinforcement. closed it up and it never leaked again and was nearly inadvisable from the top.

Mine is in the far back corner, I will need to remove the shower doors to get the pan out. But that is probably the right way to do it.

I would see if you have access underneath to place shims or put something underneath the pan to prevent flexing. After you have stabilized the pan then I would patch the crack on top with fiberglass cloth and resin to seal the crack. After that, if you want the non-skid surface, I would use the truck bed liner material as a top finish coat. If you CANNOT stabilize the pan to prevent sagging, which may be cause by rotted under-layment from previous leaks, then I don't think the bed liner material would offer a lasting repair.

I will check for access underneath, it seems that is key.

I fixed a 4" crack in the tub of our Damon Daybreak with J-B Weld and it's held up for 2 years, so far. It doesn't look pretty but it doesn't leak and was a lot cheaper and easier than replacing the tub or trying to patch with fiberglass.

Those whose shower pan has not cracked beware. I am told RV's in that ear, mine included, have this problem due to there not being enough pan support under the shower floor. I added aditional support to mine. If your shower pan does not feel solid when you stand on it give some thought to better support before it does crack. I had to make an access panel through underside of trailer. Servicing after the fact is rarely on the minds of the RV industry. Best of luck.
