After the Leak

Part of this fun we are all involved in are leaks. My concern is how do we clean up the mess created by the leak. I have a 10 year old class a with interior ceiling damage. Along some of the seams, about a inch or two where there were previous leaks the ceiling material has separated and is discolored. Any feed back as to what's the fix, DIY or professional?

If you have to ask, maybe you should have a professional do the job.
It depends on how handy you are. I've been lucky that my son has been an RV tech for 20 years. He handles any of my how do I fix/do this jobs. A lot of stuff I handle myself.

You're lucky to have a family tech, I feel I am above average DIYe and even more so in the 4 mo.s owning a MH. Before proceeding I hope to hear from the group as to what seems the best approach. Thanks

I don't think the "group" can help you without some more information from you. Has the leak or leaks been fixed ? What model motor home do you have ? Can you provide pics? What type of ceiling material do you have. Some stuff can be cleaned up/salvaged, while some other stuff would have to be replaced.
I just realized your post is titled after the leak, so I guess it's safe to assume that answers my first question, if the leak has been fixed.

I know its really hard to get good answers to some items...most of the older coaches are a type of carpet. and can be cleaned with some of the carpet cleaners..some can be cleaned with like bleach or oxyclean...now some of the leather or simulates can also use oxyclean. some leather cleaners work on these to...on my '97 had the short carpet style and I used oxyclean on some and didn't work on the older leaks. used drycleaner solutions and some used vinegar.. looks really good now... have to look or know they were there...jeff

Hi Jeff, good idea with the oxy. What I have seems to be a sponge like material maybe vinyl. The material has separated leaving a dark gap. I may try white silicone but I'm sure it will look like a patch job. Thanks for your thoughts.
