Whitehawk Shower leak

Looking for owners that have a shower pan with surround with a hinged door.
I have water seepage under the surround while taking a shower.

I have tried several different sealants and application methods.

Has anyone else work through this? I realize it could be somewhat of maintenance it...I feel like I could use eternabond tape to make a water tight flexible seal but would not be the most eye pleasing solution.

I had the same problem. Water under the shower and running across the floor outside the shower. Frustrating. It wasn't convenient for me to get back to the dealer right away for a warranty fix. I tried silicone sealant but the joint flexes as you shower so it broke apart. My best temporary solution was plumbers putty around the perimeter of the base of the shower where the bottom pan meets the walls (ugly). I finally took it to the dealer and it appears they used a sealant also. I've watched outside the shower a few times while someone else was showering and it seems to have stopped but I'm still not convinced that with water hitting just the right direction that it won't leak again. Poor design. Next camper will have a one piece shower!

My 2015 Whitehawk DSRL had the same problem. I used boating putty along the bottom of the shower encloser. It works much better then sealants and is easy to remove or add to if needed. It worked for my leak.

Our 2014 Eagle had a leaky shower too. Turned out to be the door- the little flimsy piece along the bottom was missing when we picked up. We thought it was coming from somewhere else, since the water was running along the edge and then hitting the floor elsewhere. Dealer sent us a few replacement strips. Problem solved.
