A couple pics of the bad areas, it's a start anyway.
With the help I found on this site I found the Rot Doc. The side and front I'll do this winter. It appears this well known camper manufacturer was to cheap to use sealer around the windows. It's a shame also it's only 7 years old.

The filename isn't right. The extention .jpg (or .gif or .bmp) is missing. The addy for one of the pics shows "http://www.rv.net/forum/phpCOCOqxPM" It simply isn't correct.

Wow F350mule that's some rot you've got there. What kind of camper is it and where is that rot? It's been awhile since the last post where are you in the process now? Any more photos?

Yes I have more photos, don't remember how to post them. Those pics are the right rear corner, fixed last fall. I have since started on the left side. the area below the window above the sink is completely rotted . The cabover has some rot as well. All because of no sealer behind the window flanges. I have pleaded with the company for some help in shipping cost for the one piece of siding I need, so far I have not received a reply. I hope to have this completed before May. The camper is a 2001 L***E.

Is it me, or is only L***e truck campers the only ones with rot issues?

Even though you didn't mention the brand, I automatically assumed it was a L***e.

I had skirt rot issues on my '03, and I don't recall seeing any posts regarding any other brand TCs with rot.

Am I mistaken?

F350mule, I don't know whom you are using for your siding, but I would recommend a company called All-Rite. www.all-rite.com.
I had an older Shasta camper with significant dry rot in the past, and had to replace an entire side of the camper with Filon. I don't remember the price, but do remember they were very very helpful in getting the Filon, and getting it shipped to me. It came in I believe an 18' roll, and had to get delivered by truck. I know they also carry aluminum siding as well.
Good Luck, any questions let me know.
