Well those are fancy. Way nicer than mine. Wish that was available when I did mine. Oh well mine was $6 to do and works fine just not as fancy. Clear caulk would have improved mine somewhat though. I was lucky the hole in the wall hardware store I was in had caulk period!

Here is what I have done - not my pic but exactly the same.

I was looking for a discrete way to block water.

Wow! Great job...looks professionally done. I'm gonna give that style a try. Did you seat the splash guard with caulk only? And is that just standard weather stripping from the guard on around?

The splash guard comes with adhesive tape on it as well. The rivets that hold the shower wall are not in a straight line so the caulk helped even more. THe weather striping is just standard stuff. It was cut in half so there is only one rib of it. Silicon'ed that too but it was taped as well.

I can see that we are all in the same boat with these shallow shower pans. And what does not help is the shower curtain barely fit in the shower ( not long enough ) and the slightest movement that you make can run the curtain outside the shower. I wish my trailer ( mini lite 189s ) would have come with a tub instead but in the min lite most of them are equipped with a pan. Take the roo model 17 for exemple. This small trailer has the best bathroom you can get and even with a window.

Also need to mention that from the start with the original Shamrock the white curtain that came with it was not really a liner. We added a vinyl liner that is longer and improved the shower in the 183 we had last year. We did not have the leaky corner with that one for some reason. I remember looking at a few 17 models and definitely remember it was the only tub in my size range that we were looking at.

I have exactly the same issue and have installed a corner guard from Lowe's similar to the picture above.. Now the water follows the joint where the wall panel meets the tub and goes behind the corner guard and on to the floor. Did you fill the gap (caulk the wall / tub gap) directly behind the guard to stop this? I have been told to never caulk the tub / wall joint to avoid retaining moisture???

When I installed the corner splash guard I caulked carefully with clear silicone and did put a small chunk right in the corner to prevent water from seeping out through there and it works.

I did not caulk all around, only that little corner. I am told the lip from the tub goes up a few inches behind the shower surround and need air to dry out.

Also we always check - just to see - if water did come out - so far so good.

A secondary question on similar topic. What is everyone using to clean the shower,sinks,toilet with? Don't want to use something too strong and damage the plastics.
