Shower Cleaning

We just bought the Cedar Creek 36CKTS and love it. The only issue I have is the shower enclosure with three sliding glass panels. It is very difficult to clean the glass and remove the water from the bottom sill, with the three channels. The drain holes are about 1/16" above the bottom and retain water. Our shower enclosure leaked also. I had to remove it completely, clean all the glue/silicone sealer and reinstall. An all day job. Would like opinions or ideas how to remove the water that is retained in the bottom sill of the enclosure. Thanks.

Not much to suggest other than elongating the drain holes so they are flush with the bottom of the track and try to minimize the amount of water sprayed on the doors.

Is the inner-most panel at the shower head end of the enclosure?

We have a bottle of Clean Shower by Arm and Hammer on hand at the rv. Our drain weep holes in the track work well. Use a chamois type from Walmart (auto supplies, blue, soft, $6) to get most dry and then spray it down, track and corners to kill any potential mildew. Seems to be OK. We also worry about continued water on glass between doors. Very stupid design. Sooner or later someone will post a fix! 😜

Dave_Monica: The inner most panel is opposite of the shower head. Unfortunitly, this adds to the glass cleaning issue. Have no idea why it was installed this way and it allows water to get behind the overlapped portion, even though there is a plastic gasket on the edge of the glass panel. It will not be easy to flip the glass doors around. I thought of drilling out the drain hole more for better drainage, but this will be very difficult and I then take the chance of damaging the aluminum finish. The major problem is removing the standing water in the channels of the sill. Overall, a very poor design.

We use a shower curtain instead of the doors much easier.

My wife wants me to remove the sliding glass doors and install a shower curtain.

We replaced the shower door design for this

Extend-A-Shower Expanding Shower Rod - Satin Finish - Stromberg Carlson EXT 3542S DS - Shower - Camping World

World of difference. Way more room to navigate.

We left the doors on as well, but I'm in full agreement the doors are installed backwards to the water flow and that they're a total PIA to clean - especially since you can't get to the overlapping sections. We also use the clean shower product and squeegee the doors after each shower. About once a month we also use a heavier cleaner like Kaboom to help remove the harder water spots

Same issues with our doors. I hate them and would prefer a curtain with the arched rod. We have such hard water, the only thing that will get them off is Bioclean, which is almost like a compound. You can put any product you want on there, and it still doesn't help. As for the track holding water, yep, ours does too. Rig is for sale, so I'm not going to bother fixing it now. In the future, no glass doors for me.
