Leaky Shower

I was reading some old posts today about other peoples leaky showers. DH has done most of the fixes and checks that were mentioned. We have one more thing to try but the problem is the caulking he has been using isn't staying stuff due to the flexing of the tub. What caulking does every one use for their shower that stays affixed to the plastic shower surround?

Could you provide more info about where your shower is leaking. There are several good caulks, but it sometimes depends on where the leak is as to which one I would use.

If you are referring to the interface of the shower walls to the shower floor pan, you should not need to caulk that, There is a lip on the shower floor behind the wall that should be higher than the bottom of the shower wall.
You can also add a few wood spacers between the shower floor and the RV floor to keep the floor from flexing too much.
