Sealing Shower Door Track

I have a 2017 Montana 3440RL. Since purchasing it in October 2016, I have re-caulked the 3 Door Shower Door Track at least 3 times to get rid of the mold in the caulk. I find that water is getting underneath the track. I have replaced all the caulk around the track and even put caulk at each end of the track against the wall track. I can't remember if it came caulked at the ends. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is there a way you can pull up the track to completely seal it without taking the whole shower door off? Looking for options before I pull the whole door.

Is it correct the issue is with bottom track? on my 373RD the outer edge of the shower pan is higher than inside edge. For this reason, I think, the lower frame does not need caulk. Water from underneath runs into shower. Food for thought

I pulled the door off. You than have to remove one vertical side since they sit on top of the base plate. You can than remove the base plate dry, scrape, and re caulk. I ran 2 beads underneath the base plate, and after putting it all back together ran a bead on the inside and outside of the base plate. Hasn't leaked a bit and all drains back to the shower surround. Word of caution. Doors are heavier than the look.

Thanks for your replies. Here's what I did. I picked up the doors high enough to get my bottom track out. I just lifted the shower bar holding the door up above the side frames and rested them on the side frame with a piece of cardboard covering frame. My bottom door track slipped in between the side tracks. I pulled up bottom track, cleaned underneath, put 3 lines of caulk on the track and set it back in. While setting the doors back on the side frames I noticed a run away track wheel. After getting my neighbor to come help pick the top frame with doors off the the side tracks on the floor, we got the top frame off the doors and screwed the wheel back on to where it belonged. We then adjusted the one roller to make sure the door wall balanced side to side. Then reinstalled it. Yes, all done. NOPE! The 3 hour drying caulk didn't set at all. Took a shower that night and water and caulk on the floor. Two days later I redid the caulk with a different 30 minute setting caulk. While it was out I ground down the ridges for the holes in the track so the water can really drain. Bad design. Water just sat in track. Put a bead of caulk on the floor on where each side of track set, caulk on ends, and set track back in. Now all back together. Hope no more leaks. By the way, I really do not like working with caulk. I always make a mess.
