Ya the cardboard definitely left me wondering why it was on there..but you make a good point..if it was replaced it did kinda resemble shipping cardboard since it was perfectly shaped around the tank. Either way that wet mold yuk has been removed! I now have a shinny tank starring at me wanting to be insulated...I like Francesca's idea to insulate it with regular insulation then hold it around the tank by wrapping screen material around it all..but not sure if I can get a staple gun in that tight space to secure the screening..
I called scamp
and they said to find spray foam insulation and spray it..but not sure I want to do that since it would be hard to replace if it ever went bad with foam sticking it to everything..just seems like it would be a big mess...
Anyone else ever re-insulate their tank? If so what did you do?
Ha! ya I got sprayed when I took out my plug! I even had the tap open inside thinking that would relieve the pressure but no...is that what you meant by the pressure valve?
Before I put my plug back in I wrapped some teflon tape around it and tightened it with a ratchet...so far thats done the trick...no more drip!
I also found the last nut fitting they had at a local rv dealer today and installed that under my cold water tap...so far so good, no more leak...fingers crossed!
