Here we go,,, its been a few since I passed on some worthy tid bits of info we can all use,,,, Subject,,, a used trailer,, looking real purdy like on the outside,,, But the inside has buckled and warped panels on the walls. Now your already thinking yup.... water leak,,, But from where? Ok,, heres a quick tip,,,, If its below the window,, the window seal is leaking itself, Usually around the framing... and if its leaking above the window,, roof seam to wall leak,, or a vent or exhaust vent into the roof and working its way to the sides and down... Now if its leaking above and below the window,, well, then,,, that will require a wall rebuild,(99% of the time),
90% of roof leaks are from roof vents,, followed by seam splits that are leaking. Another prone area to leaks besides the normal plumbing leaks,(yes, plumbing leaks are very very common), is at the front door entry,,
You would be amazed how much abuse this step in area takes,, most folks have a rug to wipe your wet feet off etc at the front door and well,, rugs hold moisture, Plus, did you know while traveling down the highway, how much a door flexes? Dont believe me? Open your door about halfway and grb the bottom and up towards the middle and give your door a lil wiggle,,, see how much it actually flexes? Water does sneak in from underneath the door also while traveling,, just as water will leak around a side seam on your door,,,, always check your door seam rubber seal for cracks, rots and missing.. So there is my little tid bit for the day,,, happy travels and may they be safe for you and yours.
