Rubber strip on bottom of shower stall door

I have a 2014 30' FC and there is a rubber strip on the bottom of the shower stall door, presumably to prevent water leakage while showering.

It broke.

Anyone know what's it called and how to get a replacement?

After looking everywhere I called Airstream. There's no part number for that strip so I ended up taking a picture and sending it to Gretchen, the super parts lady. She matched it and sent me one. She's aided me on finding several obscure parts over the years.

During one of our Phoenix test runs, the shower was accidentaly left on. Water all over the floor in the hallway. Admittedly, the shower head was laying wonky in the stall at the time. It did make me decide, in order to squeeze as many years out of this trailer that we can, to hang a shower curtain as well as replace that strip. If I don't like the shower curtain, I will remove it. Less than $20.00 for a bit of insurance.

My shower strip broke off as well, but we just do without one and suffer very little leakage. No big deal. CDF

I had trouble with my shower head bouncing out of the holder and also not staying in place while showering. I put a drip of Gorilla Glue in the holder and also glued my rubber/plastic on the bottom of the shower door at the same time. When the glue was dry, it added just enough friction to the shower head to make me a happy camper and it stays in place while traveling.

As noted by PecanMan5, the shower door sags over time. Read the following posts on previous discussions for the same problem.

I first used the block under the hinge approach but found that didn't work and moved to installing a piece of 3/8" PEX (1/2" OD) on the bottom door frame to support the full width of the door when it is closed.

We rarely use our shower, so I can't reply to questions on the long term potential risks of water leaks caused by the screws holding the PEX to the bottom door frame.

Ours broke off as well, and I was seeing leakage on the hickory wood (not good). My wife called the service department at Colonial, and one was in the mail immediately!
