Do I fill the gap between the shower stall and the sheetrock with mud, then caulk, or fill the entire gap with a caulk? Gaps range from 3/8" to 1/8" or so.

noviceman, Either way will work in that there shouldn't be to much movement in this area if it's not upstairs and the shower, if it's fiberglass, is installed tightly. If a crack is less than 1/8 inch I clean with bleach and caulk with DAP Tub & Tile. For larger cracks, if time permits, clean, KILZ the area, flat tape with joint tape, bed the tape, sand and KILZ again. The second thought would be used if you were painting or papering and didn't want to have trouble for a long time....Mike

Mike hit the nail right on the head. 1/8" is about the biggest I would want to caulk.
