Personally would not advise permantly glueing the shower walls to the frame or filling under the pan under the pan with foam in case of future need to be to do repairs if needed later. For changing shower drain line a rubber/metal clamping pipe connector is available at Lowes/HD/etc

How would one attach a tub wall surround without gluing? Is there a trick to install but still be removable? I've not been able to find the existing vinyl-like material on the tub wall (yet), but that is also a solution that I'm considering if I can find it.

It has already been mentioned at least once but maybe we are not talking about the same thing. You don't need to caulk the surround to the pan.

The PO of my trailer did the same thing and I thought I remembered as we were looking at possibly buying new that none were caulked, but just to be sure when we went to the Seattle RV show I made it a point to look at the shower/tub surround of every RV we got on. Not one was caulked.

There is an overlap between the 2 that won't allow it to leak. Also if you have some flex when you stand in the tub, it would seem to me it would just pull away eventually.

Normally no adhesive is used to install the tub. Secure it with some screws and you should be just find. You may opt to install a new shower surround if the one has a bubble . These a attached by many different types of tape, sealant, adhesive, plastic rivets or push pins.

Agreed on no adhesive to install the tub and no caulking where the prior owner did so for no good reason. The option to install the tub wall surround with no or limited glue is appealing due to the reality that the wall would be destroyed if I ever need to remove the surround. I've had some good luck with locating a tub that is the right size, has the drain in the right spot, and doesn't have the step. I will lose some space in an outdoor cabinet but it is a small price to pay for a much more useable setup where one isn't standing only a few inches from the shower head due to the step tub design. The only final issue is as to if I can cut 5 inches off of the top of the tub wall surround without much damage as I can't find ones that are 58 inch tall.

You should be able to cut the plastic surround with a razor knife.

I went ahead and re-installed the tub. I uncovered a bit of flex in the plywood base and solved that with added bracing. To reduce flex on the pan itself, I installed styrofoam on the tub step and used low-expanding foam to level the main part of the pan. I did the trick of filling plastic bags with the foam so that I could easily remove the tub in the future with no mess.

I'm still looking for a wall surround that will fit; those that are too tall have a design that cannot be trimmed.

I can't find a surround that fits so I plan to use composite (waterproof) reinforced panels from home depot ($33 for a 4X8 sheet). They carry the plastic inside corner moulding as well This is the stuff on the walls at industrial kitchens and bathrooms and as some tub surrounds. Will simply cut to fit. http://www.homedepot.com/buy/lumber-...ite-53655.html

Excellent! Camping this weekend - planning that install in a couple of weeks.

Good work.
