Can you tell where the leak is coming from? You need to do that first before you do any repair.

^This. Then dry it out. I have had several plumbing leaks for various reasons that caused no lasting damage. The trick is to get the leak stopped first, then access the damage.
Good luck.

RV plumbing leaks are common, easily fixable and usually show up before much damage is done.

Pressurize the system, run the shower and find the leak.

I'd also check all fittings and hand tighten, only takes a few minutes.

In the future, listen to your water pump.
If it cycles without water demand, there's likely a leak somewhere.

And yes, when the grey tank reaches capacity, it shows up in the shower 1st.

If water isn't coming from that area anytime the supply side is pressurized, it is the drain side. You will have to check the drainage pipes and all connections. Don't forget to examine the traps closely. If they didn't get antifreeze in them they could have cracked.
