Shower door base re-caulking


I recaulked my shower door twice so far, both attempts failed, I think moisture is trapped. I cleaned out the old caulk, left it alone for about a week, re-cauked, no shower water for another 2 days and it failed again. Trying yet again, cleaned caulk, now have small heater in the shower to hopefully draw the moisture, have already tried hair dryer on earlier attempts. just keeps failing.......any advice

Are you using 100% silicone caulking? Did you clean the area first?

1. Name the caulk product you are using.
2. Is this a ceramic tile shower?

100% silicone is fine as long as the area is clean (mold , mildew, dirt) and dry. it must be dry!
