What does this mean-- 'shoot a whole new membrane.'

Thanks.


Rhino liner is a mixed product. It is prepared acording to the customers design..wants/needs...how much flex.

The application is referred to as 'shooting it'.

Check into enternabond products. They have a variety of products and they work.


Eternabond is a great product and is available in 24, 36, and 48" rolls for large repairs. I think this could work well for partial replacement areas. Is fairly spendy, but worth it in my opinion.

Right now I need ideas on what to look for and how to fix it.


Wood should feel like wood...hard. If its stained, discolored or soft , that is a sign of water intrusion.

Sign onto 'youtube' ask 'how to repair rv roof leaks'

'how to repair rot in an rv'
you will see visuals of what to look for, what tools to use.



Ideas of a roof repair/fix are rolling in but that may not be your only issue.
***Water will seek its lowest point and settle in places possibly not anywhere near the roof.
This is especially true if your rig was parked, sitting in the same position for long periods of time while it was leaking. That would allow leaking water to travel and pool in areas to which the rig was parked possibly off level.

You could try to peel up a 'tiny bit' of flooring or lift carpeting along the floor edges of certain areas to see if its dry, wet, damp or moldy. The floor should be solid not soft or spongy.
You could open cabinets and drawers to look inside for water stain evidence and discoloration on the 'wood surfaces'.
*** Use a flashlight and use your nose. Sometimes you can smell dampness inside a cabinet before you can see it and a flashlight is certainly your best tool for inspections of dark interior places.

Thanks for the ideas. Yes my nose definitely is helpful in this matter. I can see the water damage inside, front. The guy who looked at my roof said he could feel exactly where it was rotten on top.

I fully expect damage in the walls and floor possibly. I don't feel any problems with the floor where I can walk. But of course I will check that all.

Thanks.

Fair enough.

If you are wanting more info than what you could glean from the search I sent, perhaps do a Google search for dealers in your area and go and chat with them.

Hi all,

I spent some time out inside the MH today looking for signs of water damage/mold using my flashlight and nose and sense to touch. There is damage up front in the bunk. That's right under the tear in the roof. I expected what I saw. As far as I see/feel is contained to the front area. I check in cupboards, underneath
storage ares and pulled up carpet at the front.

There is, however, a 4" step up to the living area from the front seats. Could there be damage under there?

Where else can I look?

Thanks for reading. Diane
