You are doing allot of work. I like how you put the eternabond on the top of the slide. I never thought about that. I have leftover tape so I guess I will be doing the same.
I have all the leaks under control as far as I can tell. I have had no additional water enter the trailer that I can see.
I cleaned the remaining flooring with mold and mildew killer and laid down the plywood. In some sections I could not get the screws attaching the new plywood to grab. The original wood had been wet in some spots for awhile and is just not strong nor thick enough to grab.
I also suspect that the walls may have dropped slightly. Approx 1/4-1/2". If anyone knows how they are attached to the floor it would be helpful. The floor overhangs the frame by about 12" and the walls rest on that. As far as I can see there are a whopping two 10" supports per side (one at each end) that come off the outside of the frame and sit under the walls. Then there are 2 additional 2" supports (if you could call them that) along the frame. I am going to be adding two additional supports to each side. I can't say for sure that they have as I can't seem to get an engineering drawing from jayco. I may have to just call them. I've put a square on the outside frame to underneath the floor. Problem is the outside skin wraps up underneath slightly. Apparently i need a shorter square to not have that interfere.
Just putting this all down in case this can help someone in the future.
If I could do it the way I really wanted? I would rip everything out, support the walls and cut the floor out completely. Make a deck frame on top of the trailer frame esssentially. Put the walls on to that and so on. Prob is I don't have a massive garage to pull it into for winter work nor do I have all the free time in the world as that would be an undertaking. So I am doing what I can to make it travel worthy and enjoy done camping time with my girls.
