Hello ! ! and HELP ! !??!!

Hello To All from Live Oak,Texas ! !
New to the web site....short time in rv community...7 years or so.
I have developed a water leak in my shower. It is not from the pipes, but it is one that is nuthin' short of maddening ! !
I have removed the shower stall door ( but not the side panels) 3 times, cleaned out the old caulking and replaced it with new GE II one hour shower ready caulk. I have waited anywhere from 3 to 12 hours before using the shower and I STILL have the insidious leak? Any ideas as to what I might be missing or doing or even not doing to correct this leak?

Glad you could join us! During the removal process, had you seen any pockets of moisture in the caulk? Sometimes you will see this if the caulk has not set properly. When I reseal my shower. I completely clean all the caulking surfaces with a good cleaner even scraping the surface so that it's completely free of the old caulk. I then dry the seam with a hair dryer so that it's completely dry before I install the new caulk. I then let everything sit and dry for a day or 2 before I use the shower.

If your caulked seams are OK look for a small linear opening along the sides of the shower wall where the shower stall meets the surface of the enclosure.
