Norty1; on a RV it doesn't matter how the insolation is applied. In a home they use ply and a breathing barrier on the outside and a plastic foil vapor barrier on the inside.
The RV industry uses no vapor barrier in or outside, maybe on the high end units.
RV's are recreational just like a tent to keep dry............you hope. When it gets cold the furnace eats the propane fast to warm the outdoors............lol

Twin, your project is amazing. I enjoy your posting your progress and the pics that help me understand. It looks like you may have turned the corner when you won the roof leak battle. That sow's ear is starting to look more like a purse. I know you have a long way to go, but it's lookin' good. Awsome set of skills and even more persistence!

Looking very good. I sometimes wish that I had bought a older unit that needed some work and just made it my way. Sure would have saved a TON of money.. Again great job keep posting updates.

Thanks for the words so far everyone... this project is not was i was planning on when i bought it. I'm missing out on a camping trip in April because of this crap! (Unless i can get it done...)

Anyway, i got the paneling installed last night...


I think i got the plugs and wires back where they originally came out.


This corner looks pretty good, but can you see the darker spot toward the forward corner?



I missed the marks on my measuring. Since a cabinet will be here, i'm not worried about the looks. Not worth the extra money to spend on lumber to make it right.

So, did you notice that dark spot? its a WATER LEAK! And its not from the roof. I have had the insulation out of the unit for days now, as well as never seeing any water dripping from anything! as soon as i got that panel on though, it came... I suspect its coming from some open holes on the screw track thats outside on the nose, i ripped off that vinyl covering when it was dry, but i still noticed no leaks, till i put some staples in the "sponge".

Does anyone know what that vinyl stuff is called? i need to get a bunch of it coming...

Paint has begun...

Can't really say this is the best idea I've had... but with kilz primer and a mildew resistant paint, i should be ok as long as i don't have major leaks again. We have had torrential downpours and hailstorms leaving 2 inches of hail behind, and no leaks whatsoever from the roof. The lower nose corners that had leaks for the most part have ceased, but i haven't had a chance to re-seal the exterior sides because of the rain.

Also, when the paint is drying, it gets REALLY humid in there... so I'm running my generator, fan, and heater to save my house power bill.

Another update... Just finished with the floor. $.69 a tile at home depot. Don't need no stinkin' high end stuff here, this is a Jayco, not a DRV...






Gotta get the steps finished with some guards, and get the bed in, may even get the ceiling painted. After tomorrow I gotta pull it out of its spot and park it elsewhere for a few days to finish ANOTHER project that's been held up due to my shoulder...

Nice save! BTDT with my old 94 Dutchmen 22' 5er. Windows leaked and rotted the wall and floor. You might want to consider pulling the windows and reseal the frames. I used an adhesive backed foam. I hate that butyl tape. I did every window and stopped ALL the leaks.
The wheel wells on that Dutchmen were rotted through and sealed with gallons of RTV sealant by the PO. I missed it when buying. So I made wheelwell liners out 5052 aluminum, cleaned everything out replaced the wood on the inside and installed the liners from the outside. We used the HECK out of that camper for 3 years before moving to our Jayco.

So far i only NEED to pull one window. So i want to see how that goes before i tackle the rest. Right now, they aren't a priority for me, but will be part of the ongoing work i need to do.

I've had good look with butyl tape in the past with other projects, but i dont think i would use them with windows.
