Major Rain and....NO Bunk leaks! But the base of the shower does. Roo 223s

We'll we were worried after all the posts but we had no leaks in all three of our bunks!

Some of the worst storms I have ever camped in (central Wisconsin).

However we did have water that was coming from the base of our shower when someone was using it... And suggestions?

2015 Roo 233s.

Yay for no leaks! Our 2015 Shamrock 233s leaked immediately but not a drop again! I have no idea about the shower though?

most common cause of corner shower leaks, are the short curtains and its edges not blocking sprayed water, especially when it ricochets off of bodies being washed.

most get shower guards common at hardware stores. HD and Lowes both carry them.
usually owner install the tall one on the vanity side and the shorter one on the toilet side.

Actually, many of us put a piece of plexiglass on the cabinet side. I also put a large shower guard on the toilet side. Had to move some of the "rivets" that hold the shower walls to the wall of the trailer and had to caulk the guard, as the double-side tape that came with it was adequate to hold it to the wall going down the road.

Stainless steel wood screws with SS finishing washers like these:

Everbilt #8 Stainless Steel Finishing Washer (50-Pieces)-32712 at The Home Depot

I put several 1x1's across the back of the cabinet for the screws to bite into. Cut the plexiglass and drill the hiles carefully. It will crack easily.

As you can see, my plexiglass only went out to where the shower base stops. In hind sight, I think I would have taken the plexiglass all the way out to the end of the cabinet and down the side to the floor, although it would have made cutting it a little more complicated.

Do you think pop rivets would work for attaching the plexiglass panel to the cabinet? I just found this video and thought it has potential:
