When using shower the RCD trips. Doesn't happen every time.

I think steam is getting into some electrical device in the bathroom, perhaps a power outlet or a device plugged in to it, perhaps a light switch or fixture in the ceiling.

Not all light circuits have a RCD on them, and if yours does not, suspicion falls on the power outlet.

My house fuse box is fitted with a master RCD. A feed off a lounge socket goes threw the wall and feeds an external weather proof RCD box which when switched supplies my garden lights. If a garden light...

Appears the main box RCD is just as fast as the secondary RCD and it sensed the same fault that triggered the outside unit and it didn't wait around to see if that outside unit did the job.

Have a mira sports shower. when i turn on at isolated switch light comes on but when i turn on shower light goes out. no sound of water coming to unit or electrical sound in unit.

Have you checked if when turning on the shower water the electrical trip switch turns off at the fuse board. If the shower does keep tripping the RCD then the shower is the problem.

No hot water

Check your fuse/breaker, should be a rcd switch. Depending when the shower was installed the fuse/breaker may be separate from the main fuse board, if it is an rcd switch it should be between 30A and 40A rating. If it is still fuse wire or cartridge fuse it should be replaced by residual current device.
Remember to turn the shower off in the bathroom before returning power to it.
Hope this helps

Neff U1410 main oven trips the main RCD. Occurs

I have a u1421 with the same problem! I notice the fan doesnt run too well, sometimes it doesnt run at all, needs a prod to get it running. I suspect with no fan, that the element gets far too hot, and then starts to leak to earth, tripping the RCD. I'm gonna try buying a new fan motor - you should ckeck if your fan is running full speed OK.

You will need to pipe the shower to your sump well if you have one or get one of those ejector pumps to pump it to your main line. Tap into main might want to consult plumber if intimated by such a project but with some piping knowledge you can do it yourself. Do your homework first, don't be afraid to ask questions. Make sure to put check valve in line also, so no shower water returns to your shower.
