2014 287BHBE shower leak

After the shower is used I have noticed water on the floor outside the shower. Specifically, in the front corner behind the toilet.
I'm thinking it has something to do with the design of the shower wall, there's a small gap between the wall material and the tub.

Anyone else experienced this issue?

Yes. I used a waterproof adhesive to secure a thin vinyl strip on tthe top of the tub. I was able to squeeze it into the opening of the tub surround wall and it has stopped water from getting on the floor. I bought the material at a Home Depot.

I have the exact same issue when the trailer leans to the slide out side at all. Have not figured out a fix yet. Perfectly level or leaning the other way I dint think it does it. Considering caulking this gap all of the way around.

The tub has a upper lip that extends about 4 inches up the wall and then the tub surround walls overlap that tub lip, leaving a little space. At the top of the tub surround wall there is a gap as well, the gap is to help any condensation to evaporate from between the TT wall and the tub surround walls.
What I found out was the water from the shower was running along the top of the tub and in the front, where the shower curtain is, it ran onto the TT floor.
I went to Home Depot and found in the lumber section some vinyl strips that were thick enough for me to fit into the gap between the top of the tub and the bottom of the tub surround. I cut it to length and then glued it down.
I did all this in July 2010 and it has solved my problem.
Other members have mentioned using corner guards but the corner guards do dot get into the gap where the top of the tub and the tub surround wall meets.

We had this issue as well (in the exact same trailer!) but it was water at the back corner... in any event we took it back to the dealer (not for this, but had other issues so we just tacked this one on) and they added some more sealant to the door area.

What's that called? It looks like a plastic corner shelf. I need it for my trailer. Thanks
