Behind the refrigerator are several fiberglass panels that seal off the back of fridge vent area from the inside of the Scamp. The duct sealing tape that I orignally used to seal the seams on the panels to the outside wall of the camper have split open from the travel and I need to redo with a good solution.

What has anyone used successfully to seal this area?? Looking for ideas to tackle this project in the next two weeks.

Gracias.

See if you can find somebody that has Shinkwrap tape. It is as sticky as Ducktape and is plastic and should flex.
Shrinkwrap is used to cover boats in the winter.

How long did the duct tape last? If it was a reasonably long time, it might be the best solution.

Did you use the usual cloth duct tape? If so, there is metal duct tape available that might hold up better.

The tape held up a couple of years, but it was not as heavy a duct tape as the norm. I'm leaning towards the more traditional backyard mechanic variety of duct tape. Didn't know there was a metal duct tape though, I'll check into that. Thanks.
