Shower Enclosure Leak

Last trip out we noticed some water running across the floor. After some testing this evening I found out it is getting into the aluminum extrusion from the inside around the glass and since they caulked the interior from the factory it's taking the path of least resistance out and not in!

Not sure why these jokers at the factory can't figure this stuff out! I've attached some pictures for your viewing pleasure. I'm going to take it in tomorrow and let the dealer jack with it. I'll offer them my advice and report back when I get it back. I'm betting that I'll end up fixing it myself in the long run.

Had the same problem on my 2607, straight from the factory. Re-siliconed the inside enclosure seams, and no more problem. This was the first "repair" that I had to make on my TT.....

It's too bad the glass isn't just set in silicone vs. the rubber seal. That way at least the water would be expected to not run inside of the extrusion. I think the bottom of the track needs all the caulking removed and possibly some holes drilled in it on the inside to drain.

I think everyone of them will leak. Run a thin bead of clear silicon and wipe with finger on all points glass contacts seals and any other places alum meets base and walls. Problem solved. Won't even see it.
Still no way of dripping water onto floor when door is opened.
If this is all I need to worry about life must be too good.

We just did our first "shakedown" overnighter this weekend with our "new" used 2011 Mini-Lite 2304 (if the previous owner used it you couldn't tell - it's like new) . We discovered that our shower has the exact same leak! DH is going to run some silicone this week.
So glad we decided to take showers in it yesterday rather than wait till we got home (only 20 miles away) or we wouldn't have found this problem until we were on our next trip which will be a 4 day weekend, 6 hours from home.
