shower question

Tracer 3150bhd. In the shower the walls are lose ( not caulked) to the tub, is this normal ? Or can / should I caulk the gap so water doesn't splash up behind there?
When we took delivery I asked and the guy said " you don't want to seal it" but could not give reason why.

Mine wasn't caulked all around (walls, around tub). Of course it leaked where it wasn't sealed. Took it to the dealer and they caulked the walls and around the tub, no leaks now.

The bottom of the shower has a lip that goes up under the wall panels. The main reason for not caulking where the wall pannels meet the base is to let any water be it from the shower or condinsation to evaporate away through air movement. If you caulk you will have the chance of water build up between the pannels and the wall thus mold, rot etc.
