The Old Delam Issue!

Just bought a used fleetwood prowler made in lindsay ontario canada. Owner informed that there were several areas delaminating at the front and that he had repaired them. There was no obvious delaminating areas when i inspected it. One tow in very heavy rain this summer produced slight dampness on the bed "headboard" inside the camper and three bubbles on the outside at the front upper panel just above the horizontal molding strip. Any suggestions for repair? Would applying heat to that area have any effect--thinking about the process for applying a laminated strip to the edge of a counter.

Last year I had a delamination problem on my MH, I did the work by myself. There were two approaches that I took and that was fix the delamination and find the leak. Turned out that when Monaco built the unit they forgot to put a 5cent screw in one area and it caused all those problems. The previous owner kept it at a secluded campsite for 5 summers and then in the winter time had it covered. Along I come driving it in all kinds of weather, then we found a leak. Applying heat will not solve the problem, if possible locate where the leak is and fix real good. Hope this helps

Have the RV checked with the seal tech method. This's will find all your leaks and the easiest method to insure you have a sealed product. Then the epoxy delamination process can begin. Best of luck in your project.
