Nope ... right on topic. On mine (3 piece, door in middle) ... and I'm going from memory cuz' the whole thing is in a dumpster ... if you look at the very top where the cross brace meets the sides (the 2 seams where the angle changes), I believe there are screws and a small plate that bridges the seam. If you remove the plates the cross brace can be raised/removed ... the pins/hinges on the door will then be released from their holes. At this point you can remove the door and add plastic washers to the bottom pin to raise it.

Extend-A-Shower Expanding Shower Rod - Satin Finish - Stromberg Carlson EXT 3542S DS - Shower - Camping World

The above did not work, no where near long enough.

So I am ordering (Thanks Bruce Again!) This as recommended by Mr. Bruce:
RECMAR 4372 Deluxe Shower Curtain Kit 72" Long

Bruce, I might need some direct intervention in the way of advice, so I'm going to keep very close in touch with you when I get that in and figure out how to screw it to the ceiling. My Coach has a fiberous ceiling and I'm kinda nervous about if it will hold that ceiling mounted shower curtain....

The new one is shipping out today. So I'll have it on the 'to do' list for the upcoming weekend.

Thanks again Bruce!!

You bet !! ... ask away. The track assembly is aluminum and with the rollers probably weighs 1 LB. The shower curtain is the heavier part. I replaced the screws that came with it with the next diameter in Stainless ... maybe #8 instead of #6. I think I drilled the holes a little bigger in the track mounts. My ceiling is soft vinyl with a foam backer and luan plywood beyond that. Holds fine. You may be able to find a ceiling joist if you are really lucky.

The track comes in a monstrous shipping tube (hence the freight charge).


You may want to make a cardboard template of where you want the track and where the bend will go (and what radius will best match your tub at the bottom). The track should allow the curtain to hang down so that you have to push the curtain bottom to get it into the tub ... in other words, similar to a curtain on a household tub. This allows the curtain vertical ends to stick to the enclosure walls when wet and keep everything reasonably dry.

The track bends VERY easily ... use something large and round to form it and be careful. A 5 gal paint bucket is close ... I used a larger radius and used my car spare tire.

Mine's 72" X 72" ... I think that's "standard". You'll need to measure after install but that will probably work fine. If too long you can hem it ... if a little too short you could fabricate some extenders or just add "S" clips to the top. Or bead chain ...

On more thing I remembered ... I pulled the trim from the skylight to have a look at the ceiling material and that's how I decided on length/diameter of screws for track mounts. Gave me a chance to check skylight and clean everything .

I have a 2000 34' Fleetwood Terry 5'er with a large crack in the shower floor. I've had this unit for 18 months and live in it pretty much full time going from job to job. Where can I purchase a whole new shower unit? Mine is exactly built as shown in MH. My shower floor is getting more mushy and I need to address this now. Thank you for your help.

Chuck

Got the glass walls out.

The piece on the far right would not come out and no screws evident. I've decided to leave it and us it as a border to fasten the shower curtain to...maybe....

That's as far as I got this weekend....but farther than I thought I'd get!

Those glass pieces are a lot heavier than they look!

Try running a fresh/sharp utility knife blade down the seam ... it's probably either 3M style double tape or just an adhesive. Keep at it ... you'll regret not removing everything. Mine had screws AND adhesive (like Bathroom Silicone). You can try some heat from a hairdryer.

and ...

Yes they are !!

looks good so far ... amazing how big the space is without the glass !!

I did give up easily on it. It was late and I was happy with what I'd removed at that point.

I'll be trying at it again this weekend. Thanks Bruce!

I will clean it all up once I get the ceiling track installed.

I need something pliable, like a hose or something, I can cut to length, or maybe a piece of cardboard, I can't figure out how to make a template.

Bruce, what did you use again?

I have very little space between the skylight and the cabinet on the one side. This pic is not mine but identical to mine...
