09 Simba - Holes in Rear Cap

Attached are two pics of the construction of the fiberglass rear cap viewed from the ground up. One is of the center area which is sealed tight. The other is of the corner of the Cap showing the wiring to the tailights and is open to the roof of the coach.

Is this typical construction? Do other late model Monaco products -Admrials, Monarchs, or Simbas have these area open? Is this area open to provide access for service?

I plan to seal these areas with wire mesh and Dow foam. I can access them via the tailights opennings. Any concern with this approach.

Thanks gg

Looks to me, in the pictures, that was their intention. Looks like they just ran out of foam and forgot about it. I would think that if you can get to the wiring harness there, maybe enclose it in a wire sheath, before you foam, that would be fine.

On second thought! What about using pipe insulation. The gray foam type to enclose the wiring. That way the wires would be protected from chafing and you could pull through new wiring later if you needed to. Just a thought.

Gordon, Thanks for the Tip on using the pipe foam to enclose any of the wires.

I think the wires/ connectors are above the area where I would seal off. I'll have to remove the Tail lights asm to be sure I can use its openning as a service access.
