…….I’ve been fielding calls from several people about water leaks, what to do and how to seal the roof.
Yesterday I showed you the goop job several had subjected this coach to trying to stop the water leaks. Here is the pic from yesterday of what the re corner of the coach where the rail isnow here’s what’s under all thatThe awning rail too had to come off. You can easily see issues. The Phillips crew on the end cap is so rusted we will still it out. There is a hole fibbed with 45 year old butyl tape big enough to stitch your finger in under that cap! This cover rail needs to be removed and sealant replaced I would say every 10 years. The screws would come out easy and this periodic maintenance should assure leaks won’t form….at least there.
Still penetration from screws holding vents down has detwrioratedand no grommet or sealant under original, cracked top clearance lights can’t help but leak.the seams on the rear cap are all openand the body to window seal is gonethe ripped out screws on the ladder are fixedany of these could be a source to let water in. Slathering silicone on top does little.
And finally, here’s the drive test yesterday on John D. 23′ Birchaven……see ya tomorrow
