Shower leak?

While staying in New Mexico for Christmas we noticed that the shower curtain must not keep all of the water from coming out the door...The walls around where the stall meets the floor collect water and it's starting to seep up and bubble the paneling. Anyone have a fix for this? I can certainly caulk where the paneling meets the floor with silicone, but I'd also like to keep the water in the shower in the first place.

Check the water supply fittings inside the door by the entrance door. Over time they can loosen up while traveling. Hand tighten and then use pliers to snug it just a touch more........don't get carried away.

Are you talking about in the bathroom? The bathroom fixtures don't leak. This only occurs when someone has taken a shower, or is in the middle of taking one.

You need to keep a very close eye on that water leak. If the water gets into the plywood under the vinyl floor, your cooked. Such a thing is very very expensive to fix properly as everything is built on the floor and vinyl.

I got some extra velcro strips with adhesive on one end so I could place additional strips in the shower to better hold the curtain. Water is the death of all RV's.

Good luck.

Vin.

This is exactly what happened to us our first year out with our Rockwood Freedom 2280 (2012). It was quite by accident we found the solution. No problem since and something I check from time to time if I happen to have that little door open.

I have a 2015 HW31SCTH, Flagstaff, I have not taken a shower inside, have used the outside shower once, could you put up a regular shower curtain like the one you would use in your bathroom at home?

The shower curtain should have come with your camper........in fact two, an inner and outer shower curtain. They feel like fabric but they are your shower curtains. You could use regular shower curtains.

Our LQ horse trailer has what they call a"self cleaning" shower curtain that folds almost flush against the one wall. It runs in a track both top and bottom and does not leak and its a 2009.
