RE: Help! Water under the skin, delamination and damage.

https://www.nroa2003.com/download/Northwood%20Brochures/2005-Camper-Brochure-pd-11-04.pdf Once again, her 2005 Silverfox edition is aluminum frame, water intrusion on this camper will not effect its main structure and is quite repairable compared to its wood framed counterpart.

Oh you are in trouble...they did not go to the aluminum frame until 2006...if it is a wood frame....well delam is your least of you worries OMG!!....you got a time bomb! OH NOOOOOOO! Guess it just keeps getting better (sigh) Thank you for telling me. Such a bummer! Saved up all my pennies for a time bomb. Learning opportunities can be expensive! :-( Don't listen to him, his info is wrong

RE: Help! Water under the skin, delamination and damage.

Is it a "silver fox" edition 2005?...if so, its aluminum frame and if so,the "rot" might be only limited to the thin wood that's between the skin and the foam blocking and aluminum structure....while the repair it self is still on the large side, it's not as bad as some of the others. I did this repair on my 2005 af990.. If its an aluminum frame why is the cab over drooping?? The filon delamonates, fills with water, turns into a birdbath and sags down in the middle, the cab over section itself is not sagging down...it behaves like a waterbed if you press on it...another fun tidbit, af used thick cardboard material between the filon and the wood veneer. It soaks up water like a sponge and would never dry out. No you won't fall thru the bed, the stringers are aluminum as well, and block foam insulation glued between, nice part is, water can't really wick into the interior. Having said that, the repair is still a big job, im a tradesman as well so it's just normal repair work for me. I dont recommend taking it on yourself if you don't feel you have the skill set to pull it off. Also, I would have it inspected for more water damage before digging into it, the cab over water leak was only one of about 5 areas that I fixed due to water damage.....they are a nice well built camper, but water intrusion is a bit of a issue with them If you can't do the repair work yourself, for sure get quotes...it won't be cheap.

RE: Eagle Cap quality control continues to disappoint

Is it possible that that hose is actually meant as a return air duct? And not supposed to be connected at all? If it draws air from the bunk area it will create a circulation effect from the lower half of the camper.
