I am determined to fix this before it gets much worst. I have read that the Safari's (which are a cousin to these company wise) had some of these same issues, and sometimes it was called galvanic corrision. They are aluminum skinned, so that isn't impossible.
I have noticed that often the problem areas are where interior screws holding things like cabinets are. This may be a starting place for the reaction. Not sure.
If you look in my first post, there is a panel on that slide on the top right. That is where the worst concentration seems to be. I have it in the barn now, and am thinking about removing the rivets on the trim and removing the window, and trying to peel off that panel. Perhaps I can get a better view of the damage then, and do some surface repairs to the wall itself. Then get a new aluminum panel (cut from a large sheet) and cut to fit. Anyone know what adhesive I should be considering? I was thinking that fiberglass would be my build up material where needed. So the adhesive should hold up to fiberglass and wood.
I'm not sure about the seam to seam trim.(see the bottom of the panel I am talking about in the picture) It has something on there now that looks like paneling trim. Any suggestions on how to trim this properly so it looks decent and most importantly seals properly?
If I can come up with a doable repair method, I can apply it to other areas, and maybe larger sheets ideally. If you have any experience with this, or can suggest somewhere to go for info on this, please say so.
