Brought home our new 24mbh

We brought home our new 24mbh on Saturday. While putting items in the bathroom I noticed that there is not any caulking on the seam between the shower wall surround where it meets the tub. This seems like it would be a good idea or isn't it really needed?

Not necessary because the tub has a lip on it that runs up behind the wall surround.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Not to worry. It's a two piece design, the wall section overlaps the tub surround, so water will not penetrate.

Agree, but one issue I seen on my new 23RLSW is the top of the shower surround is not flush in certain areas and is not caulked from the factory.

With the shower head close to the top of the surround, it looks like water could get behind the surround and run down behind it.

So I went ahead and caulked the top edge with clear silicone.

May want to check yours.

Many people suggest not caulking it since it's designed to be open, to allow some airflow in to dry up any moisture behind it. The bottom is overlapped by a few inches like others have said so no worries there.

I installed corner splash guards (with caulking as well) in my trailer as I found this was a common point for water to leak out and onto the floor. They work very well. I also found the stock shower curtain wasn't waterproof and water would seep through it and onto the floor, so I doubled up the curtain with a simple clear vinyl shower curtain from Walmart (cut to match curtain size) and now all water stays in the shower enclosure.

I prefer to keep the moisture out from behind the shower enclosure. Wood and water, not a good combination. It should be able to breathe from the bottom I would think.
