Rotate pic upright. :)

Tool guy Here is a picture of my mess. You can see I started to use some of the sealant as a fill thinking it is waterproof. But then I thought about thinset sticking to it. I really need some profession help. Will thinset stick to the sealant will redgard stick to the sealant/ SHould I remove the sealant and thinset all voids and then redgard? I know its a mess.

Okay, seems like this is going to be fixable without a ton of effort. But let's get some stuff out of the way so I don't mis-lead you in any way.

1) Looks like RedGard has been applied to the walls?
2) What waterproofing has been applied to the pan?
3) And does KBRS require a certain brand of roll-on waterproofing, or do they allow any roll-on waterproofing?

yes red gard is properly applied to the walls . The pan came waterproofed from factory. some of the factory waterproofing has come off and the floor is not level as some places the tiles came off and in some places the thinset came up.
KBRS says red gard is what they recommend. the white spots you see om the pan is a polyeurethane sealant that I initially thought would be a good fill because of the waterproofing quality. Kbrs uses it for sealing do you know if thinset will adhere to the sealant. The sealant is sandable and suppose to be paintable so i figured red gard would adhere to it should I remove it and use thinset instead . removing it might be a pain.
Thank you so much for whatever you can help me with

I'm not a pro but I use the kbrs shower pan in my master bath so I'm familiar with the system.

If you read all the kbrs installation instructions they make very liberal use of polyurethane sealant everwhere so I can't imagine there can be too big of an adhesion problem.

if I were you I would redguard the bottom as is, then fill the holes with mortar,
to smooth everything, then several layers of redgard on top of that. definitely do a flood test when you're done
