2016 Forester MBS 2401S - Shower Question

I'm assuming the edge of the shower pan extends vertically behind the shower walls. I ask because I noticed the joint or intersection between the shower pan and shower walls os not sealed with caulk, which seems counter-intuitive. TIA.

It extends vertically, however I caulked the entire seam due to some leaking in the front corner when the coach was facing slightly lower in the front. The water followed the seam to the front and leaked.

Thanks, my thought is that it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and seal the seam with caulk.

Husband commented just yesterday that he needed to caulk it.

I just picked up a tube of silicone for mine also. It does have a lip going up but looks unfinished and cheap when the plastic is loose. I noticed the back of our bathroom mirror was siliconed and from the looks of that job I am glad they didn't touch the shower. They have strings of silicone across the back of the mirror where they moved the caulk gun around. Very inconsistent line. I am going to use a tension rid to push the shower liner tight to the wall while the silicone is setting up.

I totally agree with caulking all seams in your shower. I did mine as well as my son did his in the Rockwood mini lite he owns. Mine actually allowed the water to run along the bottom where the shower doors run on a track and leaked onto the floor in the corner where the surround met the wall.

I recaulked the vertical seam also. I agree, what a sloppy job done on bathroom mirror! I also have problems with shower door staying closed. I've already replaced a broken latch and also added Velcro for backup.
