detecting water damage from floods, hurricanes, etc
« on: November 03, 2017, 11:50:12 AM »
if much of the interior of a class c has been refurbished or added new, what should we look for and where, to see if it had been damaged? Would this need to be disclosed on the title?
TY!

Don't know about the title but I would not walk away, I would RUN away from any such vehicle that even hinted at that kind of damage. A major replacement of the interior furnishings  is, to me, a very big hint on a fairly recent vehicle...

Another thing I would worry about is water that is or has been (along with silt) in the engine, transmission, rear axle, generator, etc.

I know you can buy moisture detectors but I don't know how well these would work on an RV,  but someone here might know if this would be a worthwhile tool!
