Default Shower drain not connected to P trap

I hope we haven't messed up. After noticing a significant amount of water leaking onto the ground, we discovered that our shower drain was not connected to the P trap. We attempted unsuccessfully to conduct a repair. In doing a test, we accidentally left the shower valves open all night (the on/off switch on the shower head was off). We discovered this the next morning when water was still coming out from underneath the rear of the camper (2013 214 WSD). Although the water stopped flowing when we shut the shower valves off, there is still quite a bit of water leaking out from under the trailer. We are concerned about this leading to permanent damage. Any thoughts out there on what we should do to mitigate?

Default Lots of air

Use heavy duty fans inside and out of the trailer to dry it as much as you can. Other than that, what else can you do? You can't take up the flooring, which is what is trapping the moisture. Hang in there!

Get a dehumidifier and run it in there for a couple of days. That should help dry it out.

Default Thank You!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I hope it will be OK. Gosh, there aren't many FF out there on the road are there? We just traveled over 2,300 miles in ours and stayed in 4 different RV parks and only saw one other FF. It was the white body style and we passed it on I-90 in South Dakota.

re: not seeing many Fun Finders on the road. We felt the same way, but now that we shopped and bought one we're noticing them more. Probably depends where you are, too. You don't find a dealer on every street corner, that's for sure. We drove 90 miles to the nearest dealer, and in our midwest neck of the woods, they seem to be 100-200 miles apart. That said, we just camped 30 minutes south of Cincinnati last weekend and two of our neighbors had a Viewfinder Signature and a Shadow Cruiser, two of Fun Finder's four siblings, the other two being Radiance and Enterra. (Actually CruiserRV just released a sixth brand in July, the Stryker, which is an 8-1/2 foot wide toy hauler line. Not sure how they can make a street-legal trailer that's 8'6" wide when that's the legal limit in most states; I would think the awnings, door handles, etc. would make it illegal to tow. Having to pay for oversize load escort vehicles everywhere you go would get kinda expensive! lol)
