New Here '94 Itasca Suncruiser

Hey All, I guess my rig is vintage so I'm signing in here. It's a 1994 Itasca Suncruiser, 34'. 454 Chevy, hydraulic leveling. It started life as a purpose built MRI lab and was on the road in Florida for several years. All the lab equipment has been removed by the previous owner and he started turning it into a camper. Everything has been done with the exception of the sink in the head.

I was given this rig back in the spring of this year and have been in the process of restoring it. It sat in a warehouse parking lot for about 5 years and the last part of that it developed a roof leak at the forward most a/c unit. This went unchecked for a while and rotted the floor and roof around the leak. I have removed and replaced the floor and it's good and solid and now I'm working on the roof.

I'll be looking for some pointers on roof repair It has basically delaminated from the luan on the top and bottom of the blue foam. I've replaced the appx. 4x8 section of ceiling right behind the cab and now I need to pull back the roof deck to attend to the luan on top. Anyone have any pointers?

What I was thinking is that I can cut a section of the roof cover (looks like fiber reinforced plastic) and pull it out of the way to remove the rotted luan. Is that the right approach? If so has anyone done this before and can provide pictures?

Here's my rig. Thanks in advance for any help. You can read more about me in the New Member's Forum under "Hey From Florida".

You may look on RV.NET I have seen some roof repairs
on their web [pages. We have some dips on the back section
of our 93 Jayco roof guessing the plywood needs replaced.
Don't have a place inside to work on it so may have to
rv shop repair. Good luck with yours.
