It's going back to the dealer for repair as it seems the whole shower needs to be removed and replaced.
We have yet to use our shower, but were planning to on the next outing. Did you caulk it both top & bottom, Chuck?

Happy 4th by the way. you all!!!

It has leaked since day one but I caulked it.
When I was on my shakedown camping trip an hour away from the dealership where I bought the trailer (8 hours away frrom home) I noticed water on the floor outside the shower after my first shower. Dried that up and when the DW had her shower, same thing.

Long story short, after examining all the leak points I caulked the entire perimeter above the moulded floor plan. This means the non-caulked joint between the liner and floor plan, and the joint between the glass and the floor plan. Used the much-maligned clear silicone caulk too. I have no shower leaks now and we shower ever day when we go camping so opportunity is not an issue.

Sounds like I need to get in there and do the same. My only worry about caulking the joint between the wall and pan is there would be no way water seeping through those tiny round plastic wall anchors on the shower wall could get out. The design of the pan and walls are supposed to stop water from leaking out an draining back into the pan. Much the same as those fiberglass inserts for homes. Perplexed.

To my way of thinking, there would not be a lot of water reaching back and around the heads of the anchors top drop down and drain back into the pan, so I opted to take my chances and seal the bottom. I suppose a tiny film of caulk around the heads of the anchors could not hurt, but I would not bother personally.

I suppose that too would be an idea. I would love a seem less shower stall to alleviate these issues but I would imagine we could find one but never get it in the TT. Lol. Perhaps that will be on the shopping list when we decide to buy the next RV. Can't even imagine buying another one when I finally get this one bug free rotfllmao.

Okay here is another holiday mishap. Letting my puppy learn to swim at the lake. Well she finally jumps in and enjoys the water and swimming like a fish. Well she swims over to the rocks and gets a 1/4" laceration to the back I her hind leg. Break out the trauma kit, clean it out and bandage her up. Call the vet's emergency line and guess what? It's the 4th of July. She's not bleeding and she's bandaged up till tomorrow. If I had the sutures I would have stitched her up here. Those are in another trauma bag. She's enjoying the attention an the wonderful weather here at the lake.
Although Wednesday you could bake cookies on the front patio, last night dropped the temps low enough for a little fire in the fire place. Tonight down to the high 50's thanks to hurricane Arthur. Pics to follow.
