Water on floor in bathroom

Been reading alot of posts on here about this, but would rather confirm the answer. We just bought a 2013 22FB. Had it out 2 weeks ago for our maiden voyage. After the Mrs got out of the shower I noticed a little puddle of water behind the toilet. Wiped it up and on Sunday i noticed it after a shower again. Its not much water, but I work for a contracting business and worry about water/wood etc!! Should I caulk the seam in the tub? I am guessing NO, but would rather have some other thoughts. Maybe try again this weekend and see what happens?? Thoughts folks??

Just like any leak, in order to stop it you first have to know where it's coming from. I would keep some dry paper towels in the area and see where the water originates. It could be just a small caulk opening or whatever.

+1 you need to find where it leaks

More than likely the water is running off the edge of the tub. I installed corner guards from Home depot type store, still happens but not as much. I also use the hand held and dont leave it on the wall to spray on the edge of the tub or on the walls. Check it out

I bought 3 "Sham Wows" pads at a flea mkt for $9.00 to sop up any water on floor. Keep em in bath & sink area's for quick access if needed.

I resealed with clear silicone all around the tub when I first noticed water on the floor and have not seen any since. Been over a year and still dry!

We had the water on the floor issue with our 2002 Sportsmen and the Home Depot tubs guards fixed the problem. Also, our 2016 Jayco also has the water on the floor issue and I will be placing tub guards before our next trip to see if that cures it.

Water somehow gets around the shower curtain and trickles down the outside corners of the tub. I don;t care what I did with the shower curtain I could not stop the leak until we installed the tub guards...

I have experienced the small puddle behind the toilet before too. I found that the small amount of water finds it's way behind the curtain and runs down the edge of the tub. Tuck a folded paper towel in the crack right where the shower wall and top edge of the tub meet to confirm (during your next shower). If it stays dry but you still get the puddle, you'll know to take a more serious look for a leak.

Setting the trailer VERY slightly nose high stopped it for me. You can't tell it inside. You only know it when you look at the bubble in your level.

If you prefer to set up perfectly level, the guards mentioned earlier in the thread should do the trick.

I had the same problem in our Trailer. I found a solution on this forum but cant find it. What I did was go to lowes and buy a plastic piece of 1/4 round. It is the same color as the tub. Cut it the length of the tub then silicone it to the top of the tub the full length. Think I used 1/2 or 3/4 inch , 1/4 round. Run a bead of silicone along the inside and outside, a small bead. If you do it right it looks like it was factory and I get no more water on my floor. Was a great solution that looks better then those corner pieces.
