Aquaglass shower base install.

Aquaglass shower install manual page 2, http://www.mascobath.com/_installati...40-ASBInst.pdf

I have been reading on this site that when installing a shower base it should be set in thinset mortar. The install manual states:

DO NOT use screws to secure base to wall.
The base is designed to be glued in place.

Should I follow these instructions to the letter or go with the thinset option?

Aquaglass shower base install.

Not necessarily thinset, but many fiberglass/plastic bases requires something under for support. This reduces flexing and ultimately, cracking. But yes, follow directions.
