Shower Caulking Recommendation

The caulking at the bottom of the shower on our 2015 Fleetwood Terra SE 33s is lifting.
Any best recommendation for product and procedure?

The very best caulk in the world is GE Silicone II.
Sticks to everything, lasts 50 years.

I like that silicone caulk product, too, unless I have to remove it to recaulk a seam. It stinks pretty bad until it cures and is difficult to work and smooth out. Mineral spirits helps. You might try DAP KWIK SEAL ULTRA available at Home Depot and Lowe's. It is water soluble and works easily with a little spritz of water and a wet finger, plus clean up is easy. I recaulked the RV shower with the stuff and am very pleased with the results.

I'd be willing to bet it doesn't stick to old silicone.
Prep is crucial where silicone used previously. Prep aint easy but can be done. There's a reason many body shops prohibit ANY silicone products on premises.

Some folks swear by silicone...
Others swear AT it
You decide!

I'm a big fan of 3M 5200 or 4200 depending on application.

Latisil Tile and Stone by Laticrete. It was what was recommended to me by the local tile shop, and is tons better than anything else I have ever found. It has been in my stick house for about 8 years. It is as perfect as the day I put it in, and does not mildew.

For installing, I recommend 2 things. Buy some blue masking tape, and mask off next to where your want to caulk. (or technically, where you don't want to caulk) Next get a glass of water and put a little dish soap in it. Do your caulk job and then dip your finger in the soapy water and smooth out the caulk. The caulk will not stick to your soapy finger, so you can smooth out the caulk perfectly and wipe away any extra. Once you get it looking pretty good, then lift the masking tape. That will give you a perfect straight line along each side of your caulking job. You need to lift the tape while it is still wet.

We have a local tile shop that has been in business since the beginning of time. This is what they taught me.
