2010 Surveyor SP 186- Shower Leaking

We just returned from our first major outing and discovered what I believe to be a major design flaw concerning the shower in this unit. The plastic shower wall overlaps the plastic shower bottom. Even if the trailer is level, water runs out onto the floor. There is no way to prevent it. Eventually this will cause the floor to rot. As it is, I can't see how to fix it short of replacing it with a solid plastic unit. I love this trailer but am upset that this shower has been so poorly designed. Even adding shower corners are impossible based on the way this is set up. Any ideas on how to approach this? Our dealer is outstanding so I'm really hoping he can find a remedy for this.

Try putting in a pleated shower door or a shower screen to replace the curtain.

Worked great on our Outback and kept all the water in the tub where it belongs...

Do a search for "shower leaking" here on the forum, there has been a few threads on it in the past, there may be some good solutions to be found there...

I have the same camper with the same problem. One other member i have been conversing with also had the same problem. My fix was to caulk the gap and slope it forward building up the caulk on the end. Has worked fine so far. But I plan on getting those plastic corners. Better than shimming the whole unit. Let me know if you come up with something better.
