Shower enclosure not caulked at the top

is this normal? Should I be able to pull away the plastic enclosure from the wall?

You need that space for air movement to keep it dry and mold free.

yes it is normal. Do not caulk or silicone it. In Colder climates it will contract when cold and expand when warmer/hot. If it is caulked/siliconed it will cause the plastic to crack where the plastic rivets attach to the wall. Likely wont be an issue in Fla but it is normal and fine the way it is. Buuuuut, my parents used to winter in Fla and many times it was a degree or 2 warmer here in Alberta than Fla on Christmas day! True story!! So dont caulk it.

Thanks for the answers. One thing off my growing punch list for the dealer.
