Quick Question regarding Shower Caulking

Well, we brought the TT home from storage to get ready for teh 4th and I noticed some water leakage after washing the shower and rinsing it down. Well, the caulking looks to be in pretty rough shape and it looks like someone sealed over the original, maybe a few times. The bottom of the shower sides has a bit of flex to it so it is very easy for the sealent to pull away or even crack.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what type of caulking to use. Obviously I am going to have to go through the fun of removing all the old stuff first.

Also, the 2770 has a large home type shower with metal and glass sides for the front. It almost looks like they used the putty type of sealant between them and the plastic walls. Does that sound right? IF so, then it would seem that I will have to dissasemble all of the mtal and glass as well... Yikes and with no days off before we leave.

Might end up using the showers at the campground heheh.

Might use tub caulk from the hardware. Try removing what you can, clean the area with alcohol (not Royal Crown), then caulk. Allow to dry and have a good trip. Worry about more complicated repair when you have more time.

I have found the only caulk that does not pull away and crack is the 100% silicone. The other caulk blends of silicone and laytex shrink and crack with all the flex of pulling a trailer.

I had some gaps where the tub/shower pan meets the plastic side wall and I used white silicone tub/tile sealer. I was able to lay down a nice clean bead all around the tub where it meets the wall.
