I purchased a 1973 Boler
13 at the beginning of last summer. Had some good times pulling out the windows
, resealing, and polishing the aluminum. Went through and replaced all the storage covers and cabinet doors along with the hinges. My wife replaced and recovered all the cushions. All that being said...I have the age old problem of the door sagging on our camper. I am wondering how best to repair this problem. I have looked through the forums and see that a few people used a jack to lift up the roof and then braced the sides of the door. So I have several questions.
1. In looking at our Boler
there are no braces under the cabinets near the sink and stove. I am unsure if these need to be there or not.
2. How do I know when I have the roof lifted properly or in the right place?
3. Once I do get the shape right how do I best keep it there?
4. I have noticed that there is a 1-2" gap between the shell and the benches all the way around the camper. Do I need to learn how to fiberglass and reattach this or was it never attached from the factory to being with?
* I took the door off last summer, found a bunch of water in the bottom drilled a few holes in the bottom and drained it out, replaced the exterior hinges, and resealed the window.
Sorry for the long post but need some serious help headed into the spring season.
