Caulk the bathroom?

We're new to rv'ing. Just bought our first one a couple weeks ago. I took my first shower and noticed that water ran out of the shower and down the outside. There's a corner seam between the wall and the base of the outside of the tub. Does this need to be caulked? What about inside the shower at the top of the tub? It looks like the plastic runs up the wall behind the base of the plastic shower liner. Was curious if anyone usually caulks the bathroom or leave as is.

Here is a thread that has pictures on page 2. https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...shower+leaking
I have also read somewhere on here (I can't find it) that the tub and the surround was ment to shift when driving. And if you caulk the entire length then it will eventually seperate.

I am going to seal this. I am tired of the leaks. Some say caulk it some dont. But I would rather stop the problem and have to re-caulk later than to deal with rot.

I plan to caulk mine and re-caulk as necessary.

Caulk the bathroom?

They say to leave some at the bottom to prevent moisture build up inside the wall.
I caulked mine on the inside of the shower door and out on the wall about 3". So far so good.
Also caulked the outside seams.
