Today I had a chance to begin cleaning the interior of the Surfside
I discovered a leak. It is at the back (at least that is where I found the standing water), on the door side, which is the lowest area of the trailer the way it is sitting at the moment.
There was quite a bit of water, not stinky at all, clear. I soaked it all up with rags, and could see that it trickled down from the back side of the trailer, rather than the side wall. Then I noticed that the wood on the bench, where it meets the wall, was wet. Then I pulled up the flooring along the back wall under the table, and sure enough it was wet and mouldy, almost to the foot of the other bench, but not quite. There was black mould all the way across to the other bench, under the flooring and at the bottom on ensolite.
We had a look at the back light
, it had a bit of black mould in it, but the hole for the electrical
wires was dry as a bone, so maybe the leak isn't there.
The rear window is my next guess as the source of the leak.
Any feedback on this would be welcome!
We are thinking of taking the window out and resealing it, but since we haven't done anything like this before, it is a bit intimidating. I found links here for replacing a window in a trillium
, but the link seems dead. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/in...howtopic=33014
