I couldn't own if I had to pay to repair at $137 an hour, my bank account is not that big.

Another no picture update: We re-secured the front lower hitch area. I replaced all of the OSB wood spacers with new, installed better insulation, and secured the living crap out of the sheet metal. Originally, the metal had 1 or 2 screws per square foot, which even with the rotting wood, did not secure it properly. It was floppier than a... (insert mental image here)

Not only was the metal floppy, it was also off square by about 1 inch at the front corner, diagonally from the electric jack stand switch. (that means alot). Now that everything is square, and resealed externally, i can focus on the insides. We have had really heavy rain the last couple of days, and there have been 0 leaks. I cant say enough about the ProGuard RV roof product. I only applied a thin layer, but the stuff works amazingly. Its fully dried now, and the surface is one solid sheet of rubber. Ill take some pictures soon.

Update With pictures!

Here is the newly repaired bottom side. With a bajillion screws, and fresh wood. Its SOLID. We temp sealed it with butyl tape. Ill beautify it later.




I got the forward floor up to remove the remaining carpet and and luan paneling. The screws holding this floor down were mostly sheared already. Probably came that way.


only thing between this hole and the floor is a sheet of moisture barrier.


I got it back down, and after cleaning up all of the remaining loose carpet, its ready to install insulation.


Its pink!




Today im going to get the paneling installed and get ready for paint.

Great job! Can you imagining paying a dealer or someone to do this? When you are DIYer you can be proud of doing the job right. Roofs are still a weak point in the RV industry. There are very good sealing products available, but they simple choose the lesser quality because of the cost factor. In the long run the owner has to do this in order to protect his investment.

I always was told that the kraft paper on insulation should go to the inside.. is that a concern on your insulation job?

There's a member on here who bought a new Jayco, and the first thing he did was get the roof re-coated. Literally took it from the dealer to the coating place. When i get a new unit, i will probably do a roof automatically, to prevent having to do this again.

Apparently it does not matter where the paper faces, according to the manufacture. A building inspector may disagree. I simply ripped a 2x4 insulation batt in two, and used the mating pair for the spaces. so some have paper, some don't. Note: the stuff expands to 3 times its thickness once its un-rolled. it doesnt look like its very thick in that roll.
