Shower Curtain doesn't fit right.

When I bought my Argosy28 it didn't have a shower curtain so I went to my handy five and dime and bought one then proceeded to cut it to fit. However it still doesn't fit right along the wall with the medicine cabinet. Will anyone share with me a picture of how the curtain is suppose to fit and how the snap I found on the wall plays into all of this?

Thanks kindly,

The shower curtains have snaps on the outside wall side because you can't cut it so it fits to the curve well enough to seal. Velcro strip on the interior wall side works fine, but the velcro doesn't stick to the ABS of the shower stall wall (at least in my Minuet it doesn't stick). Using snaps means you have to be very careful when you unsnap the curtain because most shower curtains tear before the snap releases if you just pull on the curtain. Solution? I don't know. I may try putting a piece of ABS sheet under the snap on the curtain to give me something stronger to pull on to unsnap the curtain from the wall.

My shower curtain doesn't have the snaps, just the wall. Looks like I either need a different shower curtain or to attach snaps.

BTW, my trailer has a rear bath if that matters.

You have to add the snaps to the curtain. Walmart carries snap kits. Male part goes on the wall with pop rivets, female part goes on the curtain. It sounds like you have the male part of the snap still on the wall so you will be putting the female part on the curtain.

While you are at it, you might put a 1" X 2" thin plastic piece as a reinforcement for the snap on the curtain. Make a fold in the curtain, slide the plastic into the fold, drill through for the snap post, then mount the snap. I haven't tried this yet, but the curtain is prone to tear at the snap when you unsnap the curtain from the wall.
