Shower Tub Shell Peeling Away

Do any of you have experience with the shower/tub shell peeling away from the wall? Especially at the top? I can reach behind it and feel a piece of double sided tape that is no longer adhering to the wall.

If you do have experience with this, have you used a glue or epoxy that has fixed the problem?

On my 32BHDS the tub surround has a gap on top and is not sealed on the bottom where it meets up with the bath tub. I have been told this is designed that way to allow any moisture , behind the tub surround, to escape. The top lip of the bath tub extends a few inches up the wall and is overlapped by the tub surround.

We just purchased a white hawk and was wondering about the shower surround. I was thinking about caulking around the tub and at the top of the surround. Maybe that wouldn't be a good idea if it was designed the way you described? I just figured it would be better if water couldn't get in at all.

I would use a good quality silicone to adhere it to the wall. Silicone will allow the walls to move.

The bottom is not caulked to allow water to escape. The tub has a flange that extends up and the walls come down over that flange.

I don't think any silicone is needed, the tub surround is fastened to the wall. On my tub surround there are caps over the fasteners, which are spaced about 8 inches apart.
I would be afraid of water getting trapped in there and then sitting against the wall.
