This is true. We run the exhaust fan for 20 minutes after using the shower and wipe down the walls and it is dry as a bone.

any chance you have a pic of that surround? Will be getting an x23f soon (if the wife would just make up her mind already).

I have a 2013 X17Z with no shower surround. I work for Benjamin Moore Paints and have been batting around the idea of priming the vinyl wallboard with
exterior primer then going over the primer with our satin finish exterior Aura
paint. My thought process on the solution of no shower surround is, if I prime
the factory wallboard with STIX by Insl-X ( STIX is a bonding primer made for PVC, Vinyl, Plastic, Glass, Tile etc. ) Then 2 finish coats of exterior Aura paint tinted to match the shower pan. Aura has excellent durability and is mildew resistant. I would remove and replace all the caulking around the shower with
paintable exterior caulking, then proceed with the painting. I would apply the
primer and paint with a foam mini roller and tape around the edges with frog tape I guess the bottom line is, if paint can hold up on the exterior of a house with sun, rain, sleet and snow it should hold up in an RV shower. Any thoughts or experience with this process let me know.

I recall that the surround is part of an option package. We don't have one and I don't see it as a problem. The water just runs right off. Our old Kiwi had a wet-bath and the same material used for the wall paneling. Never a problem in 10 years of ownership.

Our '05 23B has a shower surround. We bought the camper used so I can't advise if this was placed in there by Jayco or by the first owners.

My old trailer didn't have a surround - just the vinyl wallboard. Wiped the walls down after most showers, but sometimes not. After 12 years, it still looked brand new.

our x17z does not have surround. we use the shower regularly and have had no problems. When the camper was new we did have an expansion / joint issue where in the back corner of the shower the caulking had seperated. took it back to the dealer and had it repaired. I check there every time we use the shower and have had no issues since it was repaired. love being able to shower without using the campground showers.
