I want to put a 5 piece tub surround over DensShield backer board. Should I use PL 700 or thin set to stick it on? Is it O.K. to put vinyl on the backer board?
Thanks Ioniz

Not sure what you mean by "stick it on". Fiberglass tuns often need support underneath, which is usually mortar or similar. But that is to mold to the bottom of the tub and provide support at the bottom, not necessarily adhesion. And I see no reason not to do it backerboard. I would use a skim coat of drywall compound to take off the roughness.

Always follow the manufacturers directions!!!
