Shower leaking into floor

Anyone have issues with the shower leaking into the floor or on the cabinet causing damage? Ours has drip water that runs along the edge of the "tub" into the floor.

What kind of Jayco do you own? My 2016 Greyhawk 23MV also had a leak when using the shower. A small puddle of water would appear on the floor just outside the shower. I removed the small hatch cover next to the floor and found water there also. I kept the hatch cover open and placed a dish towel there to soak up the water until I could get it fixed. I had my Greyhawk driven to Indiana for collision repairs (all done - looks as good as new!) and Jayco fixed the famous transmission vibration and my shower leak. I have not tested it yet, but I can see where they caulked next to the inside of the shower door where the bottom of the shower door frame meets the molded shower base. I really only had these two warranty issues and the transmission vibration was caused by Ford not communicating with the Class C manufacturers about the small increased length of the new 6 speed tranny.
Does your shower leak also happen inside the hatch cover (assuming you have a hatch cover)?

Welcome to the JOF.

If your unit is under warranty, take it to the dealer to correct it.

I see you have a Hybrid and your going to love it. What many of us have done is install this corner that redirects the water back into the tub. I'll go outside and take a pic of the other corner in just a few minutes. There's a clip on the other side that holds the shower curtain in place.

This is what I did to the other side, I made a little water dam with caulk and it works 100% on directing the water. I also cut a piece of plastic and installed it over the side of the wood cabinet and caulked the edges again 100# water containment. Hope this helps on your water problem.

Those corner things are imensely useful, in our old house when we got rid of the shower door and put a curtain up i had a problem with water splashing past and onto the floor. One of these bad boys saved the day (And my new flooring)

i took heavy duty Velcro to the wall and the shower curtain. it keep the curtain tight on the tub wall and does not let water run all over the place. I live out of the thing for 5 months a few years back.
