    We recently purchased a Rapido 9066df, great motorhome but when we were cleaning out the shower I noticed it draining very slowly and a leak under the van. Has any other Rapido A class owner experienced the same issue I am only asking this because our previous Rapido 997M had the very same thing……….what’s going on? There must be others like this it can’t just be a coincidence, can it? The leak is not coming from the trap but somewhere under the floor. Does anyone on here know anything about this issue and why? Thanks

    Not had a problem with our`s, Yet... :)

    If you dont think it is the waste,,, may be worth checking the pipe work to the tap/Shower head.. (y)

    Should be behind a removable panel, if it is anything like ours..

    Have a 53 plate 966M - not sure if the same shower arrangement. Have had 3 leaks this year due to:

    1. Jubilee clip on cold feed to shower control slipped and leaking (remove show control with 4 screws under caps). Easily repaired with new Jubilee clip. Symptom was water pump cycling every 15 mins and water running out underneath MH.

    2. Fine radial cracks around one of the two drain outlets (possibly caused by over-tightening of central screw). Replace drain outlets. Symptom was water running out of bathroom on floor.

    3. Pipes from the 2 shower drains are push-fit 28mm to Y connector and 90 degree angles and several had longitudinal splits/cracks on push-fit area. Replaced various drain connections between shower drains and trap. Symptom was water running out of bathroom on floor.
