Hi Emilie, just want to throw out a suggestion to have the front and back window seals replaced as you consider leaks. I ordered the seals from the Scamp website and paid an auto/rv glass installer to tear out the old, worn seals and replace with the new seals. In about 2 hours the job was done, and the sweating and leaking has really improved. I have noticed a leak stain inside on the ensolite below the frame, so that will be next, but totally easy and doable with rivets, butyl tape and a $20 rivet gun. The front and back seals do get worn and let in water; leaks would be inside the ensolite coming down the outer wall, just noticeable in the storage bins. Just thought I'd offer some advice from another Boler owner! Good luck.

Thanks Jamie! That's a good suggestion.

You will all be relieved to hear that after one failed attempt at caulking the band (the air was too damp and it didn't set properly, then it rained, lol), I decided to get some help and remove the belly band and caulk the gap between the fiberglass instead. We removed the band yesterday and it took me a while to scrub off all of the caked-on mud. We'll be caulking and riveting it back on tomorrow. If you guys have any tips or suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Thanks!

Just wanted to give you guys an update. A few weeks ago, I found a nice carpenter who helped me with this. We removed the belly band, caulked it, and riveted the band back on. Totally fixed the problem. Woo hoo!
