Shower leaking

I have a 2015 2608 Rockwood and have a problem with a leak and can't seem to locate the source. I have caulked every place that it could be leaking from but it still continuing. it is not a major leak and I only can see it seeping from the wall after using the shower. I have caulked the faucets, the buttons that hold the shower to the wall, the bottom where the walls meet the shower pan, the joints where the walls meet the glass enclosure, the base of the enclosure. I even removed the faucets and turned on the water to see if there was moisture coming from the hose or connection behind it. I have removed the inspection plate under the shower pan and inspected the drain. This has been a problem since purchasing the RV in 2014. Unfortunately I live about 250 miles from the nearest Forest River repair facility and thought that I could remedy the leak myself.

I must be missing something and hoping someone may have some suggestions other than what I have already done.

I had the same problem in our 2011 sabre. I did all the same things you did then I finally found it. Hope this is your problem. The glass shower enclosure has a very thin piece of some type of rubber molding that keeps the glass it the frame. Where the molding has to make the 90degree corner the molding would make a small radius instead of making a sharp corner. I took a flat screwdriver and pushed the molding in the corner real good and the caulked it. That solved my problem. Let me know if you have anymore questions and if it stopped your problem. If you need I can send pics tomorrow.

thanks the pictures are great. I will follow up an caulk those areas however if they were leaking I would think that I would see water on the outside of the shower pan. There is no visible water located there. At this point I will try any suggestion.

Thanks

Can you try isolating the water flow to different parts of the shower? ie. Just the pan, just the opposite glass, just the side glass, etc?

Yes that is what I did I started at the drain on the shower pan and started going from there till I found it. Just undo the shower head where it will reach the spots you need to spray

Great suggestion! we are presently camping and using the shower daily. We will need to dry out the area so I can trouble shoot it using the isolation technique suggested.

I did find some wall attachments/buttons located at the bottom of the shower walls that I did not caulk when I did the others. I re-caulked some areas as well as those. tomorrow I will check again.

thanks for your suggestions.

Please let us all know when you figure it out so it can be passed along. Lots of folks never do that. Even if you do not find the cause and you take it to your dealer. Let us know the fix, if it ever is! Just say'n :-)
