I can understand that the shower is designed to allow for ease of assembly at the factory but what would account for the need for moisture evaporation?

The tub/shower surround are made to be installed quickly during assembly, and snap together with no need for caulking.

From what I have seen the top edge of the tub extends up the wall and behind the tub surround. If condensation forms up on the wall above the tub surround and then drips down behind the tub surround there is an area for it to run out on the bottom of the tub surround.

i would think that since water always travels the path of least resistance, that without glue it would simply go under the 1/4 round.

I have this problem with my 2012 314BDS. My plan is to use liquid nails to glue a piece of plasic along the top edge of the tub to form a barrier. I will caulk around the edges to make sure it is water tight.

What is happening is the water is running along the uncaulked bottom of the shower wall and just running out. The more "nose up" you are the worse the problem.

With a wall along the outside top edge of the tub wall the water will just either pool or run back into the tub.

Put in the splash guards after our first trip, haven't had any problem since.

I too thought it was a leak but realized it was only the shower curtain. I learned how to position it so as not to have any leaks on the floor....but with the grandkids, I just found it easier to just lay a good absorbent towel at the base of the tub.

I plan on trying to place some velcro on the edges of both outside edges of the shower curtain, and then some pieces on the wall. I figure that if I do this at least the back one will stay secure to the wall. Thats where I notice most of the water. I an also going to get some vinyl stripping that some one mentioned and place that along the front edge of the tub wrapping around about 1/3 the way along the short sides.

I also use velcro to hold the back portion of my shower curtain to the shower wall.
