Shower Door for Roo 23 IKSS

We just camped for the first time in our new Roo. The shower is, of course, a Navy type. There is water spilling all over and I can see rotting issues already.

Has anyone installed doors on one of these small showers? If so, where do I find the supplier? How about the "enlarged" shower rods that give extra room?

I'm also working on some jury rigging ideas, but want to hear feedback on doors, first.

Thanks,

Bob

The shower in the 23IKSS is standard in any RV of this class and it is possible to have a shower without water spillage. Some have installed Velcro on the curtain and walls, but I have never heard of any doors on these corner units. For one thing, they are smaller than household units so there likely won't be any to fit.

As for the curved curtains - I too would be interested but as far as I could tell there are few options for [small] corner showers.

Here's what I did recently. I also plan to include a small piece of velcro on the shower curtain to attach it to the shower wall. We're heading out to a local campground in a few weeks for a long weekend, so I'll post then how it works out.

Based on my experience, this mod should work quite well.

We "stick" the wetted curtain to the walls and nothing leaks past, that is why Velcro in maybe two spots on each edge should achieve the same result, and these corner splash guards would complete the deal.

Looking forward to your report.

Can you incorporate small magnets like hotels do? They use steel coated tubs but you could use chrome or brass coated steel base plates, screwed and sealed to the base. They sew the magnets into the curtain, you can attach many ways.

I don't see why not. That too would be a neat solution, if a bit more expensive and "invasive".

On our previous camper we had a shower like that, and we used the velcro method with good results, along with installing two of the triangular plastic pieces at the corners with silicone in order to prevent water from getting around the edges of the curtain at the bottom. Those triangular plastic pieces have a little clamp that helps keep the bottom of the curtain in place. Get 'em at Lowe's. Traded the old camper, so don't have a photo. But this worked great.

We are out camping as I write this... 97 degrees out, but the A/C is workin' away to keep us at a comfy 89 :-)

What I realized on this trip is that the plastic "water diverters" I placed at either end of the shower are working as expected, but I did not totally caulk/seal around where the base/tub meets the walls. I thought I read somewhere that it was purposely un-sealed to allow that area to dry.

Well.. Water is getting back there and running down and past where I put the plastic in. My next project will be to caulk that problem away.

I had industrial strength velcro from other projects, and tried to use it for securing the shower curtain to the wall while showering. The wall pieces are sticking fine, but the curtain pieces are not. I may need to sew them on.

I sort of expected the Velcro stuck on to the curtain to not hold. Stitching it on is best. I think that once you caulk around the corner pieces the problem will indeed go away.

Thanks for the follow-up.

Wishful thinking...
