So the snow is gone, the mud is trying to dry up, and Raz & I are ready to hit the road with the 2010 Trillium
. But ... yes, it is the fateful "But ...".
The trailer has developed a leak or leaks
somewhere in the back. The water is getting in from ABOVE the tail lights
, marker lights
vent, power, etc.. We know it is above these leak-threat areas, because the water is sitting/running on the ledge the benches sit on, which is above all that stuff.
Our strategy, thus far, has been pretty low-tech: Mother Nature has provided several days of rain, we've made use of the garden hose when M.N. is on break, and we've made use of black duct tape around the sides & top of the rear window as well as around the belly band. Mixed results. We think the inconclusive results might be because there is possibly a lot of water/moisture built up behind the wall covering and it is now slowing working its way out?
Two things we have noted: 1) The upper door-side corner of the rear window moves when pushed and is not tight to the fiberglass; and 2) The belly band has a few areas where the band is not tight to the fiberglass. Are either of these clues to what might be going on?
Before we go out to find butyl tape, etc., and tackle removing the window and/or the belly band, I thought it'd be good to garner info from The Forum
I'm including pictures (probably too many ... but sometimes pictures are better than my written descriptions). In the photos showing wiring inside the bench storage area, you'll see the sitting water atop the grayish goopy stuff under the bench seat (it shows as little bits of brightness).
TIA for any and all help!
