On a good note..we have ideas on making it sleep all 5 of us!
Nooo Water getting in when it rains?
We've had our 78 Boler
(Ladybug) for going on 15 years now and this past year was the 1st year we've finally had a dry summer in it.
over the years, it's been to a "1 man" RV repair shop, my son-in-law use to work for and recommended, one year, then to a reputable glass company, who didn't find the leak in the back and over the stove vent windows.
This last spring took it to a big dealer and even tried to order a new gasket for the rear window from Scamp
but it wasn't the same, they re-sealed the rear window and got that one fixed.
That being the most important leak because it would get the bed wet but
wife slept on that side and I was ok
but now every time we would pack for a trip she would find water behind the stove and if it rained a good deal it would flow, depending on the slant down on the bed again only on my side
of the bed. Pay-back
It took hours of inspection but I finally found that the corners of the metal jealous window had a fold in the metal that was not solder well so I placed some buttal/alum. tape cut just to fit these bottom corners and it did the trick.
Let the year 2016 be know as the year that Ladybug stayed dry inside.
