Nuevo shower screen

Post by dbroada on Sun Dec 04, 2016 11:00 am

Our 2016 Nuevo EK is parked on quite a slope. This morning we went out to the van to prepare for going away for a few days and I noticed that the shower screen has a VERY noticeable curve in it on the hinge side. The curve is sufficient to prevent the screen from swinging nicely.

Is this common?

It looks like the screen is far too tall for the gap it is fitting. This could be exaggerated by either the cold or the slope or indeed both. We will be moving to somewhere flatter today and I will look again. Has anybody else noticed this? I am sure it was fine in the summer when I last showered (in the van).

No problems with ours though we are on the flat have you examined it closely as perhaps something has jumped out

As Gef suggests, appears the shower screen fixing has popped out from either top or bottom? Being a single piece of thin plastic, the swing action has quite a lot of wobble when disengaged from the full length magnetic strip. Furthermore, if you push/knock/fall against the screen it can easily dislodge the hinge fixture.

Now that the van is on a flat surface I can see that the screen is OK. I will look again when I'm home but it appears that it is too flimsy to support itself when parked on a slope.
