X20E vs. 19XUD Shower Knobs

Hi. Dh and I are looking to move from our popup to a hybrid. We are interested in a X20E or the 19XUD. I like the X20E but don't like the placement of the shower knobs. They are mounted on the side of the sink cabinet! Seems kinda crazy when I see so many owners doing mods to protect this very area from water damage. Can you guys chime in on this issue?

I cut a piece of plexiglass to cover the wood. Fits like a glove and no water leaks. If it ever stops raining I'll go out and take a pic. Made a small water dam at the front edge of the shower pan to keep water from running on the floor.

Our (now gone) X23B had that arrangement. The shower curtain would "mostly" cover the area and it stayed fairly dry. In the 2 years we owned it I noticed no damage.

Plexiglass install and small water dam near front edge. If your trailer is not level from side to side the water will run over this edge.

NOTE: they must have done away with the water gasket on this fixture, you don't have one.

I have a 2014 X19H and it has the same arrangement. I velcroed (is that a word!) the shower curtain to all areas and it seems to solve the problem. I, however, usually am in a campground with a shower facility and use it all the time so I have really never needed to use the HTT shower. By the way, the 2015 19H model has moved the knobs to the wall which also solves the problem as this them make the unit have a FULL shower curtain. They may have done this to other models.

We have a brand new x20e (2015 model). The shower knobs are mounted on the back wall of the shower surround . . . and, yes, there IS a real shower surround on the new model. As I recall, the 2014 that was on the lot did not have the surround, so we were pleasantly surprised to see it on the 2015 when it was finally shipped.

Thank you all for your replies. And Tunce, thanks for the pic. I appreciate you taking time to go out there. Good to know there's a possibility that if we ordered we would get the shower surround but seems the mod would work just fine too.

I have the same issue on my 197 2014. How would you seal the corner if useing plexiglass? I would think moisture would get back there. I've tried it but I cant seal the corner on the wall. If any moisture develops back there you remove it?? I'm dealing with that now. Have you noticed any moisture back there?

No, and plexiglass has been there for maybe and I'm guessing 60-70 showers. I've caulked all 4 sides and it's as tight as bark on a tree. The bath fan lid is always cracked open about 1" but I never run it for more than about 5-10 minutes at the most. In the AM I'll look at that corner and snap a better pic at that location.

Pic is less than 5 minutes old of that inside corner and I see no mold or mildew. When the last person is done ( just 2) we use a micro fibre towel for just a fast wipe and let the rest air dry. We camp in state parks and on the coast, plus I live in Bellingham where it's wet most of the year and plenty of trees and as you can see no problems. Back side of plexiglass is dry and clear all the way around.
