I ran a small bead of clear silicon caulk along all joints including where glass meets gasket. No more leaks. Not worth the time to bring back to dealer.

I recaulked ours because it seeped a little water out when showering. It helps greatly to know exactly where the water is coming from. I made a "rope" of paper towels and laid around ours then had the DW take a shower so I could tell where the water was escaping.

Hi toshiba. Our V lite leaked at the floor area also. I found 2 things. ONE was the portable shower (hand held) inadvertently got sprayed at an upward angle thereby running water down the outside shower wall; and TWO- the shower door has a channel along the bottom to divert water to either side, but it also makes a very un-useful gutter, that runs water out right at the side opening area of the door. Also this same channel holds water in it and when you open the door, it runs out on the floor. BAD DESIGN!! Thanks, and good luck, Randy

Took three times of putting caulk around both the inside and outside to get our neo-angle shower to stop dripping water on the floor. Not sure if we got it completly fixed may need more this season. It was a real pain in the butt. I would fix it myself if I were you.

Add us to the list with a slight shower leak too. Good idea Bama, can you send your DW over to take a shower for me so I can find my leak
