Shower leak help

I hate to post another of these but I'm losing my patience and wits! I have had multiple shower leaks that I have fixed (around bad connections in wall behind controls) but now I'm see a small amt of water coming out the seam where the lip of the pan meets the wall or rise in the front above pet bowls. What I can understand is that they sealed all these joints with caulk even though that seam never 'sees' water so I can't tell which end it is coming from. If I push in where my finger is showing where the seal is somewhat broken...a few drips of water come down. I tested the shower and the water does not come out when the water is not hitting the shower curtain so it is definitely coming when water sprays the curtain.

What I've done is completely remove the bottom curtain piece and re-caulked it all. There are two tiny screw holes for the screws that are sealed as well. I thought for sure I had fixed it because the ends where not done well. However, this past weekend I still saw some water, not a lot but some. NOT good. Is it just that I need to fill the seam where the bottom metal hits the side support and just stuff it full of caulk? I'm at such a loss..so I figured i'd see if anyone has seen this before. I have taken apart so much in this coach and I'm not easily stumped but this one has me baffled. I'm going to do all the resealing i mentioned but again, there is no pressure so it has to be a run off or trickling issue but man, i'm annoyed. Somehow it is defying gravity and getting under the pan but i can't see it.

Thanks all...really appreciate the help if anyone has an idea.

Placing a bit of dye/food coloring in a bowl of water and using an eye dropper or turkey baster may help identifying and seeing the path of water.

Thanks...I pretty much knew where it was coming from but couldn't fully see 'why' until i pulled it all apart. Another quality install by Thor. Took out the bottom track and removed the panel by drawer to see under. The entire front where side shower track meets floor was poorly installed and caulked. Removed all, cleaned, reinstalled with pro flex clear and used a few new screws and it all seems tight now. Someone also caulked the bottom pan to the walls which is a no no. After 2 years I think the shower is water tight!

You seem to be having as many problems as I am! I am thinking of trading mine in for a DP. Not a Thor product!!!
