Thanks in advance!
We have the retractable shower door in our 2018 26U. The literature states that the door self squeegees as it retracts. However, not knowing how well that works, we always hand squeegee the door before opening. Although flexible, itís actually easy to do. No mold as of this writing.
What is NOT so easy, is getting the thing to latch. Through practice, Iíve gotten really good at getting it done on the first attempt. On the other hand, my wife has never been able to get the knack of it. She has me close the door whenever she showers... a job I actually enjoy.
One plus, in my book, is that the door is flexible. When I bang an elbow into it, the result is a nice soft flex. Our last AS was a 27FB. Smaller shower booth with a glass shower door. Several times I rapped that door so hard I though either the glass, or the latch would break. Yes, then there was the elbow ouch.
Final analysis, we like size of the shower booth so much that the minor annoyance of a difficult to latch door is worth it.
