I took my Uncle's advice to correct the same problem. ... Bought a 4' length of 1" quarter round pvc, cut it to fit snug from front of shower to back of shower, got some GE waterproof/sun/freeze proof/air-tight clear silicone glue and attached it to the top/outer-side of the tub. (With the rounded part facing the toilet and door obviously) ... haven't had a drop since. And it takes up a whole lot less space than those pre-fashioned/self adhesive corner splash guards. I don't know about your TT, but I can't lose any free space in my bathroom. It cost me $6 for the glue and the pvc quarter round (which actually matches the color of the tub and looks like it came out of the factory that way). Hope that helps. Good luck.

Thank you all for the great replies! As always very helpful. I will be trying the splash gaurds for the next trip. One other question. If you do intall a liner inside the curtian what do you install it to? I suppose you would have to buy a seperate rod that has a bend in it similar the the factory one? My curtain is not one that you could install another behind it. I also did not seal the entire tub surround, only along the top. The bottom is still open to allow any water to escape.
Again, thank you all

It's been a while since I did that mod but I did not use another rod that much I remember. I'm pretty sure that I either was able to open the hooks holding the curtain up on the track or added some type of hooks to the eyes coming off the track to add the curtain. The original fabric was over the front of the clear plastic when drawn.

Zip ties? Maybe you can just buy the replacement rollers for the track. They make some that open. Try PPLMH site.

I prefer a flat piece so you can slide it under the tub surround. You could use a flat piece and slide it under the tub surround and then a qurter round on top of it.

I have had that similar problem. To solve it, I always make sure that the nose of my trailer is just a bit higher than the back, just enough so that water does not run on to the floor in the bathroom. I realize this means I am not perfectly level, but I have not been able to notice a difference. Maybe this will help

Both are really good ideas. And if unlevel, I always prefer a degree or two heading towards the tub drain ... that said, i also prefer a perfectly leveled TT. I guess the rest is up to you and your preferences. If it is a rental, I wouldn't make any engineering flaw corrections (unless Jayco is going to pay you back and market the idea) ... if nothing else works, use a really absorbent floor matt and dry it on a clothesline after everyone has showered. That is what we did in our last TT until the whole thing was soaked with water and full of ants. I prefer a preemptive approach. NEVER LET WATER INSIDE THE TRAILER!

I picked it up at Williams Lumber in Rhinebeck, NY. But I'm sure it's even cheaper and more readily available at Home Depot or Lowes. The silicone glue is probably there too. I should have shopped around but I was minutes away from the kids' naptimes and thought (as i usually do) why not support the local mom and pop shop.

I'm telling you ... it works.
Not a drop since
it's been glued down.
I hope it works as well for the rest of you.
