To accelerate the cool down, when I first turn on the fridge, I put a frozen 2 liter bottle of water in the freezer compartment, and another on the top shelf of the fridge compartment. Seems to really help to get it to a steady state quicker.
When done, pop back into the garage freezer until next time.
Kind of a long story. In 2010, an early spring storm dropped a limb onto of the camper and torn a small hole in the rubber roof, near the front of the camper. Didn't know this until we started getting some water stains on the inside ceiling, some months later. All this was in the front area of the cabin - nowhere near the bathroom.
Before this occurred, I began to notice small dark spots on the flooring in the bathroom. They began to spread, slowly, but steadily. Once the trailer went in for an insurance replacement of the entire roof, I thought "good, this will fix the bathroom issue". Well, not so much. Over this winter it continued to spread and now most of the bathroom floor is stained and I can feel a few soft spots (guessing it all is) and know it needs to be replaced.
But..... before I do, I want to insure I've located the leak. I'm looking outside next to the bathroom - outside shower / faucet, sewer hose storage, shore power connection. None of those seem to have any real visible cracks around the caulk. No water leak stains on the ceiling. No water damage below the cabinet below the bathroom sink that would indicate a problem there. (Any chance the Tornado I installed not long before the stains began, could be causing the problem?)
Any thoughts on how to locate what's causing this? How do I insure it has been repaired? I know these slow, almost invisible leaks are a repairman's nightmare.
NOTE: due to various factors, we didn't use our camper for almost a year after the roof was replaced. Yet, the stain continued to spread, leading me to believe it's a leak from outside.
Sorry for the long winded post. I usually don't read all the way down.... don't blame you if you didn't.
