    Hi guys, Gas sorted now on to the next job. grrrr

    Just noticed the Shower Tray has a split in it, do I have to go to Auto-trail to get a new one or can I get one from a motor-home dealer.

    if its not a bad split you could always repair it, there is a special sealant that you can get, a friends shower tray split and the caravan repair guy they use repaired their tray using it. its like a clear rubberised gell. Saved them forking out for the cost of a new one

    Think yourself lucky that you dont have a Swift suntor 630g. I had to shell out £800 for mine to be replaced.

    If you do have a new one fitted make sure that it is injected with foam under the tray if the is any chance that the tray can move, it was the movement that broke the one I had.

    Just had my shower tray repaired at BRANFIBRE . They repair tray in situe by fibre glassing over existing and then apply new gel coat . The process takes less than a day,

    Getting one from a dealer even if they are available will be extre,ely expensive.

    If you can get it out put a fibre glass patch underneath where it has split and the possibly make up some ribs underneath for strengthening by using paper tubes as formers and fibre glasing over those, also squirt some expanding foam underneath.

    shower tray repair

    Hi guys, the tray has the drain in one corner, the opposite corner has the indent formed for a drain, giving the option to fit the drain at either side.
    The tray just split all around the unused drain.
    I made some supporting rails out of marine ply slotted them under the hole, cut out a marine ply disc fitted this into the hole and then using a fibre-gel filler filled up to the level of the tray, sanded it off and voila perfect apart from a different colour it`s a solid as a rock.:thumb:
    Thanks for all the comments.
