Meant to complete that repair this past weekend and forgot. Back to the store. I plan to buy the corner piece, what are you guys talking about the thick piece of vinyl? Any pics or anything?

Water Leak in B/R

Those gaps are engineered to let any water that gets behind the top of the wall escape into the tub. Don't suspect that is the source of your leak. Bought my 2009 in Feb 2010 and have not had any water leak issues in the bath
room. My dealer told me not to caulk the gaps. Took his word. Would think Jayco customer service would clear this up.

This is what we used on our last TT. That was the fix that worked really well. It also has a clip to tuck the shower curtain into.

I just plan to add that angle piece to both corners and caulk the gap right behind it so to keep the water in the tub, I am not going to caulk the whole gap

Our shower in a Whitehawk 26SRK leaked in the exact same place, right by the toilet. Talked to the dealer and got that puzzled look, like they had never heard of this leak before.

I asked about caulking the seam where the sides meet the base and was told to go ahead. Hasn't leaked since. Found some beige silicone at the local Menards and while I was at it, I applied a thin layer of caulk to each of the drive rivets that hold the shower sides to the wall, as well as the top and sides of the faucet control base. The silicone matches perfectly.

I just installed the corner guards this weekend like $4 at Home Depot. Caulked the corner and done. Will see if it helps this weekend
