The 1993 Fort Dutchman update

We think we finally got the old RV to stop leaking. I guess we'll know soon enough. We usually get a few good rainstorms in the spring here.

We took it to the place that fixes our vans and the bill will come to $2,522 for 7 new tires, new shocks, fixed brakes, and some new hoses, a tune-up and a change of oil. I don't know if they can tune up the Genny since they don't really work on them. We'll have to take it to the generator place in Nashville for that. All they do is work on generators. We should have it back by tomorrow or Thursday.

I hope the leaking is finally fixed! Sounds like lots of maintenance items will be taken care of when you get the RV back. Good luck.

Yep! They fixed everything. But now we're waiting for the tire air extenders to air-up the inner back tires. They didn't have them in stock.

The roof is still leaking and dripping down in the same place.

He may just take down the ceiling to find where the problem is stemming from. Going by the newest stains, it's coming in from the side/top where the roof meets the sidewall and there's that strip up there where they join. He didn't bring the rubber roofing paint over the edge. I believe it's getting in along this strip that covers the edge at the top of the sidewall/roof. The water then runs down and also drips where the vent is over the bed since the roof sags a bit over the bed. Today he took down the vent and light next to it but had no time to go further. He's talking about replacing or shoring up the roof those last 8' or so. But we wont know the true damage until he takes the ceiling down and we can see what condition the plywood is up there. To be honest, I think the entire roof is rotted out, not just the area over the back of the RV. He worked so hard on sealing all the vents and everything up there, and yet, after the RV is driven a few miles, the three leaks are right back and in the same places. It's like....
