There’s nothing extra gratifying throughout RV journey than the sound of an in a single day rain on the roof of your RV. It was June in Auburn, California, and I declare I might see animals in pairs making a hasty departure. I am going to provide the home windows had been a little bit foggy however I could not have dreamed that. This needed to be the heaviest rain we’ve ever skilled within the RV. I keep in mind mendacity there pondering “I ought to have completed one thing concerning the seals across the roof vents prior to now.” Fingers crossed, I slept from time to time till the rain stopped.

A fast inspection of the RV within the morning and issues seemed fairly good.till later. I used to be sitting on the ground for some play time with the canines once I heard it. SPLAT! “What was that!?” SPLAT! Now we have a material overlaying on our ceiling and it was drenched. Fortuitously for us the restof the journey was heat and dry so issues dried out earlier than we had a mildew or mildew headache. We had been nonetheless left with a plentiful water stain on the ceiling. A pleasant reminder to say, “You must have checked the seals!”

So, my first precedence once we bought dwelling was to do my traditional RV restore “scrutinize it to dying” ritual. I got here throughout one thing known as EternaBond tape. Let me begin by saying these items is marvelous. It has a guaranty of 15 years and I’ve seen the place it may be anticipated to final 18 to 36 years. Evidently it needs to be the final time I would like to do that RV restore.

Since I think this restore will final a very long time, I wished to do it the right method. The instructions and video say you may apply it on prime of the outdated seal however I generally is a little compulsive. The perfectionist in me determined to discard the outdated seal materials. That turned out to be fairly a job. I do not know what they use however it does not come off freely. I labored on it each night for a number of hours for 5 days straight. It was too uncomfortable to work on it in the course of the day. Now we have two skylights and 4 vents so there was rather a lot to take away.

Our roof is fiberglass so I used to be in a position to cautiously use a wooden chisel to take away it. (That jogs my memory. I must have that chisel re-sharpened. Does anybody else keep in mind the “Primitive Pete” movies they confirmed in store class?) I bought the final little bit off with a scraper. I am unsure that these of you with rubber roofs ought to think about attempting to take off the outdated seal. I haven’t got any information of rubber roofs however it simply sounds too dangerous to me. Remember to do your personal analysis.

So with the outdated seal eliminated, all that was left was to wipe the realm down with some mineral spirits, lower the tape to dimension, and set up it. You get one strive at making use of it. As soon as it comes into contact with one thing, it is caught. You will have a heck of a time attempting to take away it if you aren’t getting it proper the primary try. EternaBond has a extremely helpful video that demonstrates learn how to apply the tape. They do a significantly better job demonstrating than I might.

Ultimately I am completely happy that I took the time to eliminate the outdated seal. I ended up with a really smooth set up. Hopefully one much less RV journey fear.

Would I like to recommend that you simply go to the difficulty of scraping off the outdated seal? No! It is simply my method to be a perfectionist. I simply want the seals had been the place different individuals might see them. Perhaps I ought to promote tickets and provides excursions.

Oh, sure. About that stain on the ceiling. I bought out the carpet cleansing machine and used the hand wand to wash the ceiling. The stains all got here out and you may’t even inform there was a stain.

So the ethical to this story.DON’T NEGLECT YOUR ROOF SEALS!
