Greetings new friends! The wife & I are the proud owners of a 21ft '94 Bigfoot
. We are new to the camper trailer life, and learning as fast as we can. Sorry if this has been asked before... Right now I am running around and trying to get it all sealed up and fully water tight and I found 2 spots I could use some advice on how to fix...
Problem 1: Front Rock Guard
The front window rock guard screws appear to be pulling away from the shell. From the looks of it, they have tried sealing it in the past. What's the best way to fix this? Just replace screws with longer stainless steel ones? Or...remove screws, scrape off foam and old caulk, put down a strip of butyl tape, and screw it in again with slightly longer screws? Or is it nothing to worry about in particular?
Problem 2: Storage Compartment Leaking
The rear storage compartment has a little dry rot in the sub-floor. It appears that a shrunken seal is the culprit. But I cannot find an equivalent rubber seal with a t slide to replace it. What should I be looking for?
