Finally got my RV last week
« on: November 24, 2009, 10:31:24 AM »
It needs "some" work  :D

so far, I washed it.  I didn't have a real camera this weekend so I don't have any good pics for my questions.

I think I will have lots of questions in the remodeling section when I get to that stage, but I need to make sure everything is legit with the body, drivetrain, brakes, and suspension first.  Until all that is done, I won't be ready to start sealing all of the leaks.  There is a lot of water damage, and I will be replacing a lot of the wood inside, even if it's not damaged.  This includes the areas where the windows are attached.

I'm not too worried about the side windows right now, but I would like to make sure the roof doesn't leak.  It's standing on a tarp right now, but I will need to drive it to mechanics, junkyards, and other unsavory places.  On the roof there is a vent and two other holes.  For the vent, is there any way to temporarily seal it?  I don't want to do a good job cleaning it and putting eternabond on just to take it off later when I replace the interior roof. 

As for the two holes, what are they and can I cover them for now?  They seem to be two rubber hoses 1 inch in diameter, with an area around each one cut away from the roof.  Something round was mounted over each one, but both of them are gone. I thought they might be vents for the grey/black tank, but it's odd that there are two and only one tank.  Inside the RV they go somewhere into the wall.  Can anyone identify what these are?
