Water from Shower!

So far after every shower I have water on the floor of my 2012 314 BDS.
I caulked around the top of the tub surround (left the bottom as is) and still have water. Pretty sure it's just coming out from the front of the shower due to hte curtain not staying up against the wall. Have any of you had this issue? Has anyone installed an inside liner, did it help?

My old camper had a similar issue where we had to be sure that the curtain was well within the tub. If I had a tub / shower combo again, I would likely replace the curtain with a door such as this one.

Bed Bath & Beyond has stick on shower curtain clips that will help keep the curtain against the wall. Ours are working pretty well at containing the "splash". Recall another poster looking into them and when internet ordering found the shipping was more than the cost of the clips. Store purchased mine.

Yep, we had this same issue. The dealer made a little dam out of caulk right at the edge - especially up under the wall. That took care of most of it, we now also usually keep a wash cloth there to catch what the dam doesn't prevent.

Just to make clear, he didn't seal the whole wall at the bottom, just right at the edge of the tub where they could see it running down.

We have these on the corner of our tub, they help contain most of the water....not 100% perfect but we no longer have soaking bath mat when showering.

We also use the splash guards at either end & also wad a washcloth in each corner. Works like a charm for very little money.

In my last TT I got a regular clear size shower curtain liner and started after the first hole leaving 6-8 inch piece against the back wall. I did the same at the front and the moisture on the wall was enough to stick it to the wall to keep the water in.

I also installed the corner guards but got them in ACE. They had slots to thread the curtain through if you wanted to.

The oversized curtain liner solved 99% of the issue.

That was me. I ended up putting a tall splash guard on the side of the tub/shower base on the side by the toilet. I installed a set of short shower guard on the side of the tub by the faucet. The second small splash guard I installed on the edge of the vanity top. I moved the one set of shower curtain clips that I have so that I have one one each side. I also use the Jayco factory shower curtain as a liner and have a "moose" shower curtain on the outside of the tub/shower pan. Usually dry.

funny this thread is here because just this past weekend I had the same issue. at first I thought it was coming from behind spout and then I followed further and saw the water was just traveling on the edge. I just grabbed my caulk gun and made a dam, works great so far but I do like those corner splash guards.

I went to a home improvement store and bought a strip of exterior vinyle . It is 1"' wide and 1/4" thick. I used exterior liquid nails to glue it on the top edge of the tub. I cut it long enough to be able to slide it under the tub surround.
BTW the tub surround shold not be sealed up to ensure moisture can evaporate.
