Hi all

checking the motorhome today i found out we have a leak in the over cab bed area  Sad
The base under the bed is shot, must have been leaking for ages. ive removed most of the floor and its nice and flat so repair work will be easy enough.

Trouble is im not sure how the waters getting in as the sides and roof are dry? i have a roof light above the bed so im going to seal along with the 2 front marker lights and the seams of the van at the front.

what would you recommend? Ive heard sikaflex is good stuff but they have 221, 512 along with others so can anyone give me a heads up on what sealer to use?

Cheers
Dave.

I have just had a look on google and I think they all do the same job but suggest you put the question into google and you will be able to see the answers yourself. Good luck.

I use Stixall, it's as good as Sicaflex, but a bit cheaper and available at Tool station, good luck. bounce

I have to fix the floor down and still renew the battens for the front bit but i plan to change this for area for storage in for the kids instead of just a flat surface with some led lights 

  
This is how far i am so far

It looks so much better in the last picture and you seem to be doing a really good job.  Did you find where the leak was and were you able to rectify it?

Thank you.

Yes i have found it.
At first i thought it was the roof light but after so more investigation i found a shallow long dent in the roof from the previous owner but looking at it closer and i could see that inside the dent it had a thin crack in the aluminum.

Ive put it all back together now, just the front to repair but im leaving that for now to make sure its not leaking anymore just to be on the safe side  Wink

This is how it its now, ready for a weekend trip this weekend cheers
