Remove the rubber door stop/ close fastener that is tiewraped to the top of the accordion before you install it. It is a bear to get it off after the door is installed.

Yup, got it. That is a little bugger that is hard to notice, almost looks like a tag hanging there or something.

Hardest part is removing the white rivets in the shower wall.
Try using a tiny drill bit and then a small screw to pull the center part of the plastic rivets. Though I just pried them out with a door panel pry tool.

Pick up a mini pick tool set and you can pull them out without drilling a hole.

Yours may not have rivets, mine didn't. I completed the install today in a little more than an hour. You will need clear Silicone, if you get that before you begin, you'll save some time as you need it after you install the bottom rail.

The install is pretty easy, walk through one time before you peel and stick or cut anything and you may safe yourself some trouble.

As far as it working... I'm convinced it is not going to leak one drop. Any water that runs down the curtain drains back into the shower - you will seal up all those other seems when you're done.

The only con I found is it is tricky to slide. The instructions say to spray silicon on the aluminum track - that probably will help, I didn't have any to try it. Sliding it to closed, the hanging curtain at the top can get hung up on the track, since the bottom is not tracked it has momentum and rises up right on out of the track. You just have to put it back in. You just have to tell people "Go slow and be careful, I mean very slow"

For the price - it's worth it over the curtain simply because the curtain setup redirects any water that hits the walls directly into the coach.

Ordered. And I dont have the rivets so it should be pretty simple in my case.

Oh hell, last time I said "oh it should be pretty simple", I found myself knee deep in pulling a motor out of the car. Maybe I shouldnt say that again.
