Default Shower in 19rbs vintage cruiser

The shower in this is by for the worst i have ever seen no caulk or geocel between the frame and walls. And shower pan only has a inch rise on the back. The wall was 1/2 inch out from the lipp and 1/2 high there is a flaw in the design.The box with on off knobs there was some caulk but not enough you can see all the way through looking down the glass door not mounted right. At camper world in fort myers fla where i bought this.2 weeks ago on the showroom floor there was one just like mine it has the same problem and i told them they said the customer will bring it in when it leaks.That is going to be a nice vacation for someone.

It was It seeping water where the aluminium goes up the plastic shower wall there was no caulk at all just some screws. I was able to get a dental irrigation syringe full of e6000 and get it between the plastic and the aluminum had to take the screws out first.The box for the shower i took it off and put 1/2 x 1/2 square wood dowel rods from home depot something the screws can get a bite on i pre drilled so it don't crack use stainless screws to keep the rust down and used e6000 and caulk around the shower box. I did not have time to wait for c world a month to get it in.

When the water runs down the shower wall it is captured on the floor basin lip which is not high enough behind the wall and it leaks out. Looks a like a design flaw. Camper not a house will check out your deal when I go.

Yes it is on a porous surface and they put no geocel caulk between pan and frame so the water finds its way out. And the shower wall does not set down on the pan it is a half inch to high & half inch from the lip of the pan so water
splashes up and behind it.
