Shower leak in 2018 Winnie Era

This is definitely not good...

Somehow I missed this at the dealer when we did the walk-thru on this used unit last month. I've opened up the shower control valve, and can see that when the shower is on (note not just when the water pump is on) that there is lots of water spraying about in a place it should not be, followed by water dripping (lots of dripping) from the frame underneath. Attached is a picture of the (opened) shower control valve, and below it is where the hose to the shower wand screws in. I believe that behind there is the problem. Most likely the unit was not properly winterized - meaning that they failed to open the shower valve after draining the system to get the last bit of water out of this low point (also an obvious failure on Winnebago's part to put this BELOW the shower control valve).

This looks to me like a panel that is just caulked/glued in, and if I cut the caulk around it with a utility knife, I should have access. I hope. Does anybody know for sure?
