2003 Dolphin LX Medicine Cabinet Repair

Greetings Group!
Had the misfortune of having a roof leak that really messed up the medicine cabinet in my rig. Has anyone had any experience with repairing or replacing their cabinet? The electrical equipment (swithces and etc.) seem to rule out just going and buying a store bought, ready made cabinet, so I'm looking for ideas. Can anyone help?
Thanks,
Bob

Cabinet shops make custom cabinets to match. Look up a few in your area and see what they can do. It may set you back a little on price for just one but it never hurts to inquire. If they cannot or it is too pricey then ask "where could I get this done"? and follow the leads.

In my Dolphin LX the medicine cabinet is actually not that difficult of a do it yourself project. Look closely and see if you think you can make it yourself.

If your interior is Oak then wood is available all over the place. The same is true for Walnut (like mine ) and Cherry, they are just a bit harder to match for finish.

You may be able to find it in salvage. Look on line and do a search here on the forum. I know the subject of salvage has been discussed before and there are sources.

Did you find where the leak was coming from in your Dolphin? Ron

Ron, wish I could say yes. I thought I had it repaired, but either a new leak developed, or I didn't do a good enough job on the original. It stayed dry for over 4 months through some pretty heavy rain here in Sacramento, then, we had just a light sprinkle, and the son of a gun leaked again!!!!! Maddening!

I would guess that your leak is coming from the shower sky light. Had that happen to me in a different RV. Look for a crack or loose chalking. Ron

I thought so too Ron. I removed all the old caulking and put a generous layer of the "self leveling" stuff on all the screw heads as well as the entire perimeter of the skylight. I couldn't see any cracks in the plastic at that time, but as soon as I get a chance, I'll mosey up there and take another look. At this time, I'm thinking it might be coming from the moulding that connects the roof material to the siding. I've been working my way along that and recaulking all the material in that area. Sure wish I could afford the "pressure test" method that I have read about in the past. If this caulk job doesn't do the trick, I just may have to "bite the bullet" and charge that pressure test. Thanks for your reply.
Bob
