Crossroads Z1 Shower



We recently bought a Crossroads Z1 328sb. Does anyone know how the shower unit is put together, and whether we should be sealing between the wall and tub?

It should be sealed just like a house plastic shower. The tub will have a lip that goes up behind the walls so need to worry. Don't put anything on it.

My opinion, I would seal it. with white silicone . It may not leak because the tub lip is higher, but moisture around the tub lip would create mold eventually.

Do not seal it . If water gets behind the wall (ex: from the top) then it will not drain out.

Moisture accumulation on the walls.

I have mine sealed at the top, and, at the bottom. Has been since shortly after I purchased it.

Our issue is the left/front corner. Even when very level, the water wants to run in that direction, and onto the floor. We pull the shower curtain all the way to the faucet, but it still wants to go there. I may install those triangular Plexiglas pieces you see now and then, and always pile up dirty/used towels on the floor.

On my summit I had the same problem with the trailer level the water would run along the edge of the tub and drip on the floor. Finally I got some bathroom caulk and laid a 2" bead in the corner so it would run back into the tub. It wasn't pretty but worked

I always had the same problem! I'm convinced that the tub itself is way off level. This was my fix its a 4"x4" shower curtain holder. I just caulked around the bracket.

That looks good, great idea. Looks better than the 2" high caulk bead I laid on mine

I got them at an Ace Hardware store one trip. I checked their website but didn't find it exactly. It was in the RV section from what I remember.

I have noticed the same thing on ours also, if you take the hose and set it on the floor when you turn off the shower head water runs down the hose and spills onto that part of the tub its kind of a PITA.
