I have a 2014 Rockwood Mini Lite, 2306, probably like many other trailers in that family of units. We are going on our 4th season. Every so often I unscrew the access cover on the side of my bathtub / shower to look for water issues. After the first trip out this season I looked in there and found water. It had pooled under the drain pipe but it is not coming from the drain, that just happens to be a low point. I tested the drain and no leak. I also looked behind the faucet on the wall and it is not coming from there. I let it dry and on the next trip out discovered it only happens after we take a shower and it takes a little while for it to show up there. It was not instant. I'm thinking it's coming from where the surround hits the tub. I was going to just seal it but read here where people have been cautioned not to seal that up. Needs to breath, but maybe that applies only for a shower stall. Hmmm? Don't know where else it could be coming from except from where the surround meets the tub. I don't see any cracks on the surround but maybe overlooked one.
1. Should I just go ahead and seal that joint where the surround hits the tub? Seal with what? Silicone?
2. Should I try to remove the surround and inspect, and maybe seal behind it? How do those 'buttons' come off so I can remove the surround? Can the buttons leak?
Thanks for any help.
