RE: Removing old caulk

All ^good points. This is my first time and i find myself forgetting something or making some kind of mistake each time out. On the other hand, for a guy who has not been handy, I am proud of myself and $1000 better off since it did not go to camping world for the work. Doug

Removing old caulk

I can deal with old dried crumbly caulk, with gummy like caulk that you can peal up. I am having difficulty with very very sinewy caulk. Goo gone did not do it. Paint thinner supposedly threatens the surface around, I've heard controversial things about using a heat gun- so I have no solution even with all the special tools. I end up making a mess, part out , part still intact and a bad area thus for adding new caulk. This is all about the side not the top. Thanks Doug

RE: Removing old caulk after softening it

Because removing this caulk on the side has proved to be so messy and inexact- peeling bad into the good causing more problems, for the rest of the side issues I am just going to spot add.With what I am doing right now, I am creating more probems than existed before. The already existing caulk is very tough-thats good, I leave it as is, because the cracks or pin size holes are so small that just adding should do the job. Doug

RE: Removing old caulk after softening it

Veebyes, I heard there was controversy about damage caused by the heat gun.enc With fiberglass do I have anything to worry about? Agreed this is a very inexact science.Doug

RE: Removing old caulk after softening it

Goo-gone sray gel is to liquidy, you have to wipe constantly to keep it from draining lower than the area you are softening. Next time I will use the DAP caulk remover assuming it is a real gel. Doug

RE: Removing old caulk after softening it

The roof curves down over the edge to the little gutters-that should call for reg caulk not self leveling right? Doug

RE: Removing old caulk after softening it

I see that mineral spirits is a solvent and with a bunch of warnings yet it is reported to be useful in cleaning around caulk issues . Is it safe and wont remove siding coloring etc.? Thanks for all the replies Doug

RE: Removing old caulk after softening it

My roof is fibergl but most dicor seems to be intact. I am working on the side now. While I like the oscl tool I would be nervous about using it on the caulk removal. I will keep it in mind though. Doug

Removing old caulk after softening it

I am planning on using goo-gone caulk remover to soften old caulk. Anyone have any feedback on that choice and removing old caulk? Thanks Doug

RE: Portable gas detector

There is no green light on on the detector. I have not had a chance to take it in to campingworld for several things it needs just wondered why the portable 10 year multi detectors would not be superior. Doug

Portable gas detector

Rather than depending on that lp detector down on the side near the floo r, are there not some new Kidde type gas detectors that have a 10 year battery and I would not have to worry about the wiring on that inset one ?Im no t handy electrically and short on funds, i think the one on the floor is dysfunctional- Thanks Doug
