Bathtub / shower caulking

In my 195bh it looks like there should be some caulking around the bathtub and the trim. Unless there is part of the tub that extends up under the trim? There is caulking on the top of the trim for water running down the wall but the water that lands on the edge of tub seems to run under the trim. Look at the photo, I'm talking about the crack under the screws. Click image for larger version

Never seen one that did not extend up about an inch or more, not to say they did not this time. Take a thin putty knife and press between the tub and trim pushing inward, if it goes in more than the thickness or the trim and sheeting around 1/2 inch or so then you don't have an extended edge upward. You could also run a bead of caulk around the edge just make sure its for bath and kitchen work areas.

The overlap without seal is intended for ease of install and allow flexing.

I was wondering the same thing on our 195BH and removed some of the trim. it does extend up to the top of the aluminum trim. so caulking on the bittom of the trim is not needed. I did make sure the top of the trim and all corner pieces had caulk on them. up under the faucet when they had built ours they didn't caulk it
