A photo would help us help you. In my unit there is no caulking at the base of the shower and I left it that way. If there is moisture, I want there to be air flow to dry it out. Mine has an "observer" door should there need to be repairs.

Generally, shower enclosures in RV's that are not one piece are not caulked at the horizontal seams. There is enough of a overlap that water cannot cause damage. If that type is caulked, any moisture that enters can't drain and evaporate and may cause mold or damage.

X2 - The bottom seams are not supposed to be sealed...

Hello, thank you to those who answered my question. The result is that this motorhome has the sides over the bottom, and about 5 inches apart, so water can't get through. Thanks again to the answering machine
