RE: Roof leak and damage. Fix or forget?

I’ve looked around the forums but can’t seem to find exactly what I need. We have a 2008 Adventure Manufacturing toy hauler with a roof soft spot of about 1’x1’ in a rear corner and corresponding swelling of garage vertical members directly below. A sunken soft spot has appeared in the floor. This leak was there when we bought it several years ago as I had the dealership replace the very same vertical member not knowing why it was so. Over the years the cancer has grown. A Camping World in Ashland, Va wanted $16k+ for repairs. In reality I think they didn’t want to deal with it and priced the job accordingly. This far above the trailer’s worth. Other than a tear in the linoleum and black tank level sensors everything else works. She looks nice inside and out. fix it yourself. go for it if ya got the space and cover to do it. you can do it cheaper and better than any dealer these days. dont get in a hurry and DO IT!!! Question for the group is this trailer worth a DIY repair? Or let it go. I’ve had it for sell in a motorcycle track forum but no takers. We had hoped to find a Diyer but seems it’s not something people want to deal with. I consider myself an advanced handyman. I have done roof work, framing, major electrical household wiring - inspected and passed, gas water heater replacement, all manner of floor installation, plumbing, woodworking and major automotive repairs. I know mostly what I’d be getting into - rotted roof plywood, rotted rafters, possible wall structural member replacement, flooring repairs. Removal of all roof fixtures, membrane replacement, unplanned “surprises “. What do you guys think? And yes If she was 100% we would definitely be camping. Reg fix it yourself. go for it if ya got the space and cover to do it. you can do it cheaper and better than any dealer these days. dont get in a hurry and DO IT!!!

RE: 170VAC coming from my Onan generator

Note that 170v is standard AC sinusoidal ‘peak’ voltage that relates to 120v which is RMS... Perhaps check your instrument settings... 3 tonswhat? no light bulb for a meter? maybe a true rms meter?

RE: What's a good MSRP discount in today's market?

First, thanks to all the replies. Now slightly related question. The floor plan I want is a 24.5' long Coachman Freedom Express 20SE. It's the exact floor plan as the now discontinued Ultra Lite 204RD. Coachmen and stripped some stuff, and will present it at a lower price point. Thing is, it's not to be shipped for several more months. This dealer said he had one because Coachmen built a "prototype" ahead of schedule for use at a regional Super Show. At least that was the story told to me. In any case, it's the only one I can find anywhere. From the "original" price I can get it for 24% under that price, OTD, excluding state tax. otd excluding tax is not "out the door" in texas.

RE: Electrical Extension Cords

Ok thanks for the advice I appreciate it. We have not used the trailer yet, bought it at the end of October and the dealer has stored it for the winter. We have booked some camp sites in Ontario Canada starting in May and several sites say the electrical box could be up to 30 ft? Make sure to carry an adapter to convert a 30A TT plug to a standard 15A plug. You probably can only run 1 A/C on 15A, but that is better than nothing. I have heard of a few newer (and much farther south) camp sites that only have 50A hook ups. ya mite want the adapter to go from 30 amp rv plug to 30 amp twist lock receptacle like on a generator too. all you 30 amp stuff should be rated for 120v the 50 amp will be 120/230v, you prolly wont need that
