I'm going to do the roof first. I don't think I have any bad spots. But there are some places that look about due for another application.
Will do.

I would agree, this shouldn't happen on on trailer that's only a few years old. You would think they could a least run a bead of caulking around them.

Repairs are almost complete, the wall panels are in and we will pick them up on Saturday. The parts dept described the panels as a creamy color which may be a close match. And I was able to track down an electric staple gun that shoots the 3/16" x 9/16" 22ga wire staples for the paneling at a local rental store

Hey Rick, you stated you got an estimate form your insurance. Did they cover the claim? I did call my insurance (State Farm also) and put in a claim. In the process of getting an estimate from the dealer.

I never did get an estimate and actually I canceled the claim this week because the repairs with the cost of materials and such was less than our $500 deductible. The next thing that will probably happen now is getting a knock on my door from one of the neighborhood council people wanting to know why it (camper) is in the driveway and when it will be moved

Ok...received the estimate from my dealer and it was at $2,600. I have $500 deductible. Sent the estimate to State Farm. Guess we will wait and see.

We picked up the wall panels yesterday and finished the project this evening. All we have left to do is fill the staple holes with wood putty and then wait for springClick image for larger version

Aghhh, Discovered A Water Leak

Great work! Thanks for sharing! Hope I never have to get into that, but your thread gives us some place to start if we ever need to.
