Water leak when taking a shower

Hello everyone I have a class C which is only a couple years old. When taking a shower and the unit isn't exactly leveled. I get a water leak out on the floor. The shower Sits about 14 inches off the floor and one corner of the top I also get a leak. It's not only the low Points. Is it that the water is not going down the drain because of the angle. Thanks all

I have a similar problem and mine is that the frame of the shower is not sealed good to the top of the fiberglass shell. I plan to use some clear silicone caulk and re-seal it all around.

The other problem is that I'm constantly splashing water over the top of the shower!

Well Sir,
Not to seem sarcastic but, what exactly do you mean when it "isn't exactly level"? In other words, do you have this same exact problem, if you take the time to get the coach either more level or, dead level? If it still happens when you're pretty dead level, I'd say you've got some correction to do in terms of damming or creating some sort of small lip that will keep the water in while showering. Or, maybe get longer shower curtain if, you're not using a shower door. Just some thoughts here. Let us know what your outcome is please.
Scott

FWIW in general showers rely on gravity to control the water. The sides overlay the bottom pan so that water flows down the walls to the pan and out the drain. If you are so far out of level that much water collects you can get a leak at the overlap. You are also at a point where the refrigerator is probably getting unhappy. Given that it is easy enough to level better than that with some blocks it sounds like you need to address the base problem and level the unit a bit.
