Leak

My new mattress is requiring a redo of the bed platform. The box springs Peterson used was actually 2 pieces. A small section was attached to the slide floor at the head of the bed and the larger section was hinged to access the under bed storage.

When I removed the small section of box springs next to the slide wall I found some water staining in the bottom corners. No rot, just staining. Anything special I need to look for on the outside edges of the slide? Obviously had a leak but the corners of the slide look sealed.

Sorry I miss your post. I had some staining too on our rig. Seems that area gets alot condensation as I recall. When it cold outside and the furnace is running, you can put your hand down there and it's cold and damp. I noticed it on all 3 of our Excels. I wouldn't be too concerned, especially if you see the slide wipers look good there.

Thanks, Tom. I hope that is all it is. I did see some rust around one of the screws on the bottom edge of the slide. I tried to remove it and it was completely rusted and broke. The one next to it is fine. I am going to do a complete inspection and caulk all the screws when I get a chance. Since we keep it in our rv garage when not on the road I'm hoping any damage is limited as it's exposure is generally only 3 or 4 months a year. But this is our 8th season with it and that would mean more than 2 years worth of sitting outside.

I guess I will look to see if I have the same thing. If so then I am going with nothing to worry about because it will just be to big of a coincidence. When you say caulk all the screws, do you caulk around the screws, or back them out, caulk and tighten? There’s has to be a thousand screws! No wonder this is a retired guys hobby!

Mike, I will not remove the screws, just dab some caulk over them. My experience has been they sometimes don't go back in properly so taking the easy way.
