2015 Shasta Airflyte Re-issue - Problem No 2 - The Bathroom

If you plan to actually use the shower, the bathroom is anything but watertight.

Aside from the obvious places that are going to allow water to penetrate into your frame / floor - poor (read that missing) caulking on the seams, the door frame, where the roof meets the sides and the gaping hole around the water supply line to the toilet where it goes through the wall- the little window in the bath is going to really let the water flow into your side walls.

If you remove the outer aluminum "frame" (only two screws as it arrived from the factory) you'll know immediately what I mean. It will actually "catch" the water and direct it into your walls.

I removed this frame and completely surrounded it with poly butyl tape (the same thing you see on the outside of the TT where the seams meet) and then added extra screws to ensure firm contact all the way around. This takes care of the outside of the frame, but I've still got to seal the inside where the window meets the frame. I'll use the same product to seal those holes as well.

Some folks may rely on the little curtain - or shower more carefully and not even wet the outside wall? I just know I'm not one of them..........here's a pic of the window frame with the extra screws

Thanks for the description! I think most of the focus has been on water escaping through the door, which is obviously not watertight.

As for the windows, it's only a matter of time until all have to be pulled and sealed with butyl tape. My rear window leaks, so I'm having a local shop reseal with butyl. They aren't authorized for warranty work, but I don't care. Getting it done right is the most important thing to me.

Meant to add, why is there even a shower head in there? Clearly it's not intended for use as a shower.

Well campers typically come with a cheap white curtain if it is needed. My dealer told me I would NOT need one. Sounds like you need one and have to figure out a creative way to install since no hardware is set. I guess I'll Wing it!

Solving "problems"

msobvious, I am attaching a picture a friend posted recently. She cut a regular shower curtain in half, then sewed the side seams to give it a finished look. It only took 6 Command hooks to place the shower curtain in the wetbath door way. I've seen others use this simple solution of adding a shower curtain. I've also seen the iPod RV's wetbath that has a flexible rod and curtain hooks. This is available through your dealership.

My friend owns a dealership so I will ask about the iPod. Maybe that is available for purchase? I just looked at the iPods with my frog friends and didn't pay attention.

Please let me know msobvious. I would like to get a solution from the dealer. I have some physical issues and not able to do some of these creative solutions.
