Hello everyone! This is Jason again with myRVresource.com. It's like the Yellow Pages for RV services. Today I’m coming at you with another Weekly One Reason to Get an RV Inspection. Let’s talk about RV shower sealant.
I'm going to show you something and kind of explain why it shouldn't be the way. This is a 6 year old Class C RV and it has issues with the RV shower sealant. So I will take a couple of quick looks at the RV shower sealant and then I'll explain it to you.
See this is the shower. Number one, the top of the shower is not sealed. If you're in there taking a shower and washing your hair or that kind of stuff water can get behind the wall. Once it gets back there it can do damage without you seeing it.
Now the worst part about that on this one is that somebody has sealed the bottom of the shower enclosure. So that shower pan typically comes up higher than the bottom of the RV shower enclosure. This shouldn't be sealed because if water does get behind the shower enclosure you want it to run out from behind there. It then should run into the shower pan. This is so water doesn't stay back behind the shower enclosure.
So there are 2 issues with the shower that could be causing damage that we can't see. The fact that it is sealed on the bottom is really bad cuz now water can easily get back there and it just stays back there. So make sure things like that this are done correctly so that you don't have any issues down the road. With your Weekly One Reason to Get an RV Inspection, I’m Jason with myRVresource.com and you have a nice day.
1 thought on “RV Shower Incorrectly Sealed”
We have a new 2021 Class A that has the same issues. Not only is it sealed on the bottom, and not properly sealed on the top, the seal on the top pulled away the wall paper. and the shower walls were very flexible, not sealed at all to the wall. We’ll see how it comes back after the warranty work is done. Though my husband is a certified tech and we wanted to do our own repairs. The manufacturer would not pay us to do it. not even the parts. and there was quite of bit of warranty work that needed to be done. So we will let them do what they do and we will probably have to redo.
