233s Shower Backsplash - need confirmation

Hi - I've found, over my 47 years on this planet, that sometimes when I think something is wrong, it is exactly the way it should be and I'm the one who is mistaken.

So, before I caulk the backsplash in our new shower that appears to have been omitted, can someone confirm that this is not how it is intended and I should have caught it in our PDI?

Thanks,

J

My 2011 Roo 21SS was the same way and so is the 2015 Shamrock 21BD we just acquired.
IMO, the lip on the tub runs up behind the wall panels and does not require
caulk. You could caulk it, but it could be a place for grim and mold to grow.

Here are some pics of my Roo 19. No caulk. As stated above, the lip of the base pan runs several inches up behind the backsplash.

I agree.
My 2012 22SS came the same way.

We got a confirmation from a dealer and service engineer at FR that it runs up 6"'s behind bottom Lip but I may still caulk it to prevent moisture build up
