shower

Just wondering if any of you have ran in to a problem when you shower and it dripping down onto the floor? I can make sure my shower curtain is close up to the wall and it still drips getting my floor all wet. I have even rolled towels and put one at each end, however thats a pain in the but. I found a pleated shower kit that kind of converts it into an inclosed shower. Does anyone have any suggestions. What have any of you tried. Oh I forgot to mention yes the camper is level. I sure could use some advice. Thanks

How can the showerhead, above the tub, drip down on the "floor?" If it drips at all it should be dripping into the bath tub, not the TT floor.

Wet the shower walls by the ends of the curtain and press the curtain ends against the walls. The water will hold the curtain ends against the wall and stop most, if not all, of the water from getting past them. Of course, the bottom of the shower curtain has to be inside the tub or shower pan.

The OP is not asking about a problem with the showerhead. She's asking about the water that gets out from around the edge of the shower curtain when it's up against the wall.

Will something like the below do the trick? Might be worth trying before you go to the expense of installing the accordian kit. The problem with those is they don't always fold up neatly (think about the pleated shades in RV's) & can get bent easily if you elbow them. We had a pleated room divider in our 1st TT - it was a royal pain to keep nice.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Oh! Now I understand. A little Velcro on each side of the curtain and wall should cure that problem. That is if her shower is like mine.

Thank you NLOVNT. That might just do the trick. We have tried raising the tt even though it was level. I was having to roll towels and put them right at the corner edges to stop the water. Them splash guards look like the perfect thing. Thanks to everyone for responding quickly. Frenchhazel
