water runs onto floor from shower

We bought a new Forest River Blueridge 3704 BH. We had water running down the exterior wall into the cargo bay. Forest River directed us to a repair shop in Ocala Florida. They made numerous attempts to repair the leak but made it worse each time and we ended up with water running onto the floor each time it was used. After tube after tube of caulking we looked at the problem closer and determined that the support under the shower was insufficient and with the weight of a person in the shower it was causing a gap to form between the shower base and the surround. We remedied the problem by taking a 1/2 " galvanized pipe, bending it to fit above the shower surround and mounted it to the walls. We then hung a shower curtain up and our water problem was solved. Still trying to figure a way to brace up the bottom to take away the stress on the drain pipes but not a lot of room to work with being that the converter is directly below the shower drain. As long as you have movement that separates the base from the surround water will always find it's way through. Caulk might hold for a short while but a shower curtain will direct all water to the basin floor and down the drain. Hope this is helpful.
