New to the RV game

Hello guys my name is Andrew Shaver and I am new to the Rv game. I reccently bought my first RV but have run into some well covered up rot. I have been trying to find step by step wall repair on the net with no real luck. I am hoping maybe one of you guys have some pictures of step by step instructions. The framing around the window is gone and the rot is all the way to the outer shell. Any help would be great. Thanks

Not good. There really isn't a step by step repair write up. Every had a toilet leak and damage the sub floor? About the same thing but a lot more work. Search for "delamination" or "RV restoration" to find others who documented their efforts either here, other forums or even blog entries. Sorry to read that your new to you coach has the cancer. Hopefully it's fixable.

It appears to have come from the window. I guess the problem I am really having is finding a good picture of what it shoul look like underneath the interior paneling. If I had that I think with my skills I could put it back together.

underneath is most likely luan plywood behind that insulation. I don't think that has a laminate structure for outside walls. The window will need to come out. If you can take a picture of that area inside and out would be a great help. Last one I redid was aluminum frame and with delaminate issues.

I think you have a wood frame and you will need to remove the outside panels.

This might give you an Idea on how a RV is made.

Thanks Lifemember for the video. After further demo it appears the section where the cabinets are is untouched. I think I can use that as a start for a solid place to screw in new pieces. I think I will have to build the framing like I would a section of wall for a house lay the window on top draw and cut then place it in there. It may take a bit but I believe I can breathe new life into her. At the end of the day I can sit back and say I fixed it. I will take some before and after shots if I can figure out how to load pictures on here. Thanks again Hopefully by next year she will be Disney ready.

It is much like framing walls in the house. The some materials are a little different. vinyl glued to luan plywood for the walls and keeping everything as light (weight) as possible.
