RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

After you get the damage repaired, seal all the roof seams and edges with Eternabond. I bought a 50ft roll of the stuff already. When doing the edges, are you basically folding it over the edges so its like a 90 degree elbow? Yes. I put the Eternabond about 1/2 inch onto the rain gutter. It the sealed the edges. If I didn't have a gutter I would have attached it to the side wall. Take your time and apply it straight/level. Did you go right over the existing Lap seal?

RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

I doubt you will get any compensation for the leak. Who will do the repairs for you? And with the front leaking expect other leaks visible or not. Pull everything you can - drawers, cabinet sides/floors etc inspect for water marks and dry rot with a ice pick. Go over every square inch looking for issues. Still working on everything. The insurance adjuster is coming out this week. I'm waiting on a quote from an RV place also. Everything is dependent on what info I get back.

RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

Black mold can be a significant health issue. From your description, as a minimum I would want the front cap removed, and proceed from there as to how much else is needed. I 100% agree. The plan will be to remove the whole front cap and remedy the mold first. I couldn't do that yesterday because I was worried I wouldn't be able to get it back on to tow it as it's 2 hours away from my house

RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

Did you find mold under the cap? Have you located the actual leak point? Done is done. Clean it up, seal it good and move on. Yes, under the whole front cap is mold. It's pretty bad. I'm not sure about the actual leak point. I can only assume it was the lack of caulking on the front seam and had multiple leak points

RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

Did you ever figure out how it got wet in the first place? Yeah I would just call the insurance company and ask them. Like stated above. I believe it was a lack of maintenance by the previous owners and went in at the front seam. The sealant job on the roof left a lot to be desired.

RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

Ins probably wont pay. They'll point out that the damage was caused by maint. issues. Of course, it doesn't hurt to ask but just be prepared. Scott I'm prepared.

RE: Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

Sorry to hear that you are having trouble. I had a similar problem. I resolved it by buying a vented RV cover and adding a dehumidifier. Tarping your RV is a bad idea unless you are in a very dry climate. Much better solution is vented cover or a covered parking space. I get it. It was a last minute effort to get it covered because I had to get home. I plan on getting it in a shop this week so it's not a long term solution. I live in Arizona so I do live in the desert

Man, I screwed up!! Water Damage

Hello all. I'm in a very bad situation. I bought a Toy Hauler in April. Bought it from an older couple who only used it a few times. The inside is literally in perfect shape. I'm storing at a friends property 2 hours from my house. I went to reseal everything this weekend only to find a musty smell in the front cabinet. My worst nightmare is the whole front nose is covered in black mold. I pulled the front cap off and tried to the let everything dry out as best as I could. I put a huge tarp on it before I headed home. And of course we are having crazy thunderstorms today. Am I totally screwed? Any way I can get insurance to pay? I completely understand that of lack of maintenance leaks aren't covered. But this must have been going on way before I bought it. Any ideas? BTW it's 2013 Pacific Coachworks SS Thanks, Ben
