Pant, pant, pant... Ronnie... I was CAMPING. Check the area where the two pieces of gasket come together. If there's a gap, leakage occurs. You can seal it up with black windshield caulk (I've done that!).

Will do! Right now I have a piece of eternabond tape over it to stop the leak. It's unsightly that way, but functional! We are taking our maiden camping voyage this afternoon after we get off work! When we get back from camping I plan on picking up some sealant.
Thank you for the help Donna! I see your posts everywhere helping others! That's awfully generous of you!

That's my wife in the picture enjoying the new camper. I was in the process of restoring an older camper when we bought this one. I'm still gonna finish it, but I can take my sweeeeet time now! LOL
Your wife reminds me of Heather Locklear, the pretty actress on the Melrose Place series years back. So the best greeting is always a compliment, welcome to the forum.

Hi Ronnie, Here's a Hi back at you...one newbie welcoming another. Loved the pics of the first camping trip. Enjoy your little Scamp while you're restoring your other trailer. I think I'm going to enjoy mine while I finish my teardrop. Much easier than tent camping!

As for me, I just don't check the "Hi, I am...." Treads very often. Forget to do so for some reason. Better a little late, I assume, than never.
¡Ronnie, Hola! from Las Cruces, New Mexico. Welcome to the Forum!

Congrats on the new egg. It is sure a nice looking rig. Enjoyed the pics. Hope to see more as you do more camping trips with the reports.

Thanks for the welcome Adrian and Tom! Great pic Adrian! You have the 16' mansion camper! LOL

Tom, the old camper restore is going really slow, cause Im not good at wood working. Had to get some lumber special cut today to get the right thickness to frame up the wall. It's a small camper but it's starting to look bigger after a few trips in the little "cocoon" LOL

here's our set up camping at Christmas. Cindy L told me where to buy the canopy, and I ordered it and received just before Christmas. We sure needed it. It rained, and it rained some more. And did I mention, it rained? LOL

Also in the pic is the zero gravity reclining chair I bought my wife for Christmas. She love it!

Smile A somewhat tardy answer

Jane P in Post # 13 says:

"Roger that is sooooo impressive! The editing is fantastic and you managed to only include pictures in focus! And I love how you slid from stills into video!

What equipment did you use?"

I used my mouse, clicked on the You Tube video and inserted it into my posting.

LOL

It is not my video, a guy named Possum created it.
