Smile Mini lite corner shower idea

We just took possesion of our 2011 mini lite and looking at the shower did not look safe to use because of a great danger of causing a flood between the tub and the sink cabinet. I found a moulding that stick on the base of the shower and the wall and it work perfect and look awsome. It is called seal a crack tub and wall waterproof adhesive sealer and cost less than 6$. I have included a picture. You can cut it to your size and it is easy to remove after in case you change your mind. Avaliable at almost every hardware store

I hope you have better luck w/ the sealer than I've had. I've tried it using it on my tub @ home, but found that it wouldn't stick that well to the top of the tub or walls.

Keep us updated as to how the sealer works.

Revrnd: I am sure that the reason why it is not sticking well is that you may have some soap residue left on the wall. Also it is very important that you dont touch the sticking mastic with your fingers because it will prevent the moulding to stick properly. This product is working very well because we use it on our rentals units since years and no problems.

Good to hear you've had good luck. As you say, it has to be carefully prepped.

Emptypocket: I can see that I was not the only one thinking of this problem. I dont think it is too late to remove your caulking later when your camping season is ove and install these moulding. It looks so professionnal and with a roll you can do over 10 showers like the one we have. By the way with what kind of vehicle do you pull your 1809s?. We use our uplander 2009 equipped with a extra transmission cooler and it pulls beatifully. I would not venture in hilly country because I would need a stronger vehicle. I am including a picture of my rig.

We pull our 1809S with a 2004 1/2 ton Chevy with the 5.3 gas. I does have the heavy duty trailer package. It does a great job.
