Not a big problem easy fix, but did anyone else's come without caulking?

We have the full size shower on the 36FB and they caulked the outside instead of the inside of the shower. Tami put a full size shower curtain up because she doesn't want to clean soap off the glass, so that fixed the chances of any leaks. Smart lady.

I think probably 98% of all that have the sliding doors failed to get any caulking on bottom track Also on mine (36FB) they caulked down 1 side with colored caulk, but missed the top and down opposite side, had it done @ service center. First shower use kind of messy!

Sounds like a quality control issue. Seems they should fix that and also notify dealers of the ones that on their lots

Ours wasn't caulked in either corner and the door was installed upside down.

My 36RL leaked as well. My dealership had to remove the entire surround and start over with it as it would not stop leaking. They also added the catch tray on the bottom of the glass surround and that seemed to have helped as well. All in, I'd estimate 3 tubs of caulking was used to finally get the shower to stop leaking. The shower is probably the only negative thing I have to talk about on my 36RL. Redwood needs to find something better - especially regarding the surround and leaky showers.

Are they not listening to complaints? And trying to fix them?

Had the same problem on our FB, they caulked the outside bottom but not very well, it even leaked until I recaulked it. They also did not seal the ends or the inside bottom. They did get the inside sides.

Ours was caulked very well. No leaks at all at this point after 20 or so showers in it. Compared to our last Trailer where nothing was sealed and it leaked like crazy I'm very happy.

Wierd. We haven't had any leaks on our 36RL. I expected them, but nothing so far.

Same here, no leaks and I was looking for them after other's descriptions. Have probably used shower 35-40 times so far and no problems.

They must have changed things at the factory. No problems with the shower in our '13 rl

No problem withthe shower leaking in our 2012 36RL built in August 2011.







It seems that Redwood does not have standardized manufacturing processes. It likely depends on the particular worker that happens to be installing the shower surround and how much experience the person has and how conscientious the person is. Redwood would be wise to be more aware of the valuable feedback they could benefit from by listening to otherwise happy customers.

We have a 36FL and the shower is well caulked with no leaks. The only potential issue is around the top of the shower panels, as there is no caulking where they attach to the bulkhead.

I'll throw a bead of caulking around the top when I get home.

actually I heard that is a bad place to seal up. It traps any moisture that builds up from condensate while taking a shower.I hate to bring in third party but a fellow Keystone owner had De-lam on the siding next to the shower and they wouldn't warranty it because he had sealed around the top of the enclosure. You might give it some thought before you do it.It would be hard to get water splash that high anyway. Edited by: atom ant

As bad as our PDI was, we got lucky enough for one of the top guys to stop by for a few minutes. The first thing he did was go to the shower and check the caulking. He said it was a common thing and he caulked ours. We have not had any leaks in the 3 months we have had our GK.
