RE: waterproofing slide floor

Hi folks after some on-going health issues (all resolved, all well) I took a new approach to solving my leak issues. I found a young guy who works in my RV park who does minor repairs on the side, and he has caulked up many questionable places on my roof. Someone said you could help more if I posted a photo of my slide. The right corner of the slide is where it leaked before the floor was replaced. I call reach under the slide and feel the new floor, which is now wrapped in some sort of waterproofing material, but it still disturbing that I can reach it so easily, which means moisture can too. As usual, your suggestions are appreciated. I haven't posted a photo before, so wish me luck. Oh, and there is a window in the side of the slide, but it doesn't open. https://i.imgur.com/um6tAzbl.jpg

RE: waterproofing slide floor

i am out of town getting some ongoing health care but will definitely post some photos when i get back in 2 days. What is a slide topper? Not familiar with that but sounds like something I need.

RE: waterproofing slide floor

unfortunately the water damage occurred while I was having emergency brain surgery in Florida in the middle of a pandemic, followed by 2 months of f radiation and chemo. While I was stuck in Florida the RV was home in Texas with the slide extended when a big storm apparently hit. The good news is the surgery and subsequent radiation and chemo turned out very well. But by the time I got home the floor was rotted out. I was thinking that if I had waterproofed the floor the damage wouldn't have been as bad. I appreciate your comments about not sealing the floor. That makes sense. I will tell you to be thankful for what you have. When you are a 20 year old you feel invincible. When you are 65 and one emergency surgery and a few hours away from death, you get a new appreciation for the things that are important.

RE: waterproofing slide floor

Since the new floor is already installed, any suggestions on how to get to the edges to seal them?

RE: waterproofing slide floor

It's plywood. I'm hoping someone can share some experience good or bad with specific products.

waterproofing slide floor

I just had my 12 ft slide floor replaced due to water damage and it was pretty expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to waterproof the new floor? inside especially which means no flexseal type products which arent healthy for indoor use.. I've read a ton of Articles and not really found a satisfactory suggestion. TT is a 30 ft Coleman which I live in full time.

RE: portable storage shed

That's a great idea. I didn't think about looking on craigslist.

RE: portable storage shed

I got to looking at the metal one and the assembly is too intense. The rubbermaids are a little pricey but much easier to assemble and disassemble. Guess that's the winner.

RE: portable storage shed

Thanks guys. I went to look at Rubbermaid and it also showed me a galvanized metal shed for half the price. Done deal.

portable storage shed

Hi friends I live in my Coleman lantern 32 ft full time and need a storage shed to go with it. Something big enough to put a freezer in. I may move to a different state in about 6 months so it needs to be easily disassembled. I tried a large fabric one but the wind ripped it apart. I'm thinking something plastic that doesn't need a plywood base just for ease of moving. Any advice appreciated.
