Trailer: Trillium Jubilee
Posts: 28
Hi Everyone. Just bought my first fiberglass trailer. It's a 1986 15' Trillium Jubilee. Going from my 42' fifth wheel to this. It's like culture shock LOL. I have a question, actually a couple. What is the best way to deal with stress cracks from the rivet holes that hold the awning rail on and the fresh water tank has not been used in years? Thanks Tim

Tim, Welcome and Congrat's! I can't answer your crack question but others will be able to, As for your water tank, does it have cracks? If not just run some bleach and water in and let it sit for awhile then empty, rinse, You can even do it more than once. In a lot of ways you can treat your fiberglass just as you did your 5th wheel when it comes to the holding tanks. Their just smaller, Yes culture shock at first but I can tell you from someone who has camped/rv-ed in Class A's since I was 16 it won't take long for you to fall in LOVE with the little fiberglass baby. Enjoy! Robin

Welcome Tim,

That depends on what you mean by "stress cracks". Are they just on the surface in the gelcoat or are they actually right into or through the fiberglass? (pictures are worth a thousand words)

The cracks are just in the gelcoat.
