After redoing my entire 74 Trillium
, it seems there is now suddenly a new leak. Water will pool on the seat, coming from Behind the insulation and dripping onto the seat.
I have done:
-The window was just recently resealed with butyl tape.
-The wood around the window never feels damp at all.
-The marine headliner covering the reflectix insulation never has any water dripping down it.
-All screws on the window were double checked to make sure they were tightened.
-There is no water entering by the read headlight or the small runner light
-I caulked the rivets in the belly band, still leaked.
-Removed the belly band, it is now fiberglassed over with epoxy+glass mat, covered with fiberglass bondo. Shockingly, the belly band gap was already filled in when i took it off! So I thought it was just the rivet holes, many missing, that was the cause. The leak is muchhh lessened now, as I rightfully assumed most was from the belly band holes. But it is still dripping onto the seat.
-Did water test with water below the belly band. Still leaks
-Ripped up the insulation to about 6" from the seat. It appears to only be damp about 3" up. Fiberglassed the crap out of the wall 6"above the seat, and 6" below the seat, because i'm about to set the camper on fire and I'm out of ideas.
Is it possible that in some insane way water is leaking THROUGH the wall? There are no holes on the outside, I just sanded and painted it weeks ago. There are no visible cracks or anything to indicate a spot for water to enter. The water appears to enter the camper wherever on earth it is coming from, moves down the wall Behind the insulation, drips out onto the seat, and along the wall below in the cubby, on the pontoon, on the floor.
Could the seat pull away from the wall and cause some stress cracks? Something has to give. I'm insistent on solving this.
