Storms over... For now 😬

Posted 01-24-2023 at 10:47 PM by Misjudg

Well... I made it so far. I fear I have significant water damage. My windowindows I thought were leaking... Well yes they were, but not like I thought. The roof had a leak and it wasn't obvious. I saw nothing from the inside. It leaked in between the walls and that's where the water was coming from. I tarped the roof best I could without blowing away ( that would be me blowing away) and now I have it off to air it out hopefully it'll dry somewhat. But I have a feeling that it's going to take more than that the back of the RV even after I cleaned it in an hour it was all wet again so it must be pretty saturated in the walls. I think I'm probably going to have to remove the paneling to really see what's going on so it doesn't become more of a significant issue. I know I know the damage is probably not worth you know fixing or I should get a new RV but it's not an option for me. I had to throw a lot of my stuff away and my daughter stuff away but she wasn't happy about and I'm not happy either. I'm trying to be positive and think that if I have to take the paneling off and see what's going on it's a good opportunity to put some insulation in there, I'm trying to be positive. I've been trying to be positive to this whole thing but deep down I have a lot of resentment and I'm bitter because I feel like I was set up for failure. I honestly feel like my brother got tired of helping me look for an RV and just got the next one he found and didn't really look it over and I think he redid the roof to cover up previous damage and I don't really think he knew what he was doing. Yeah it looks pretty but it didn't hold up that's for sure. I think he thought after a few months in the RV I would have gotten sick of it and given up. I didn't think he thought for a minute that I would actually really enjoy it and be happy and now that I'm finding out all of the problems of course he avoids me and I never bring it up cuz I don't want to deal with it I don't want that battle I don't want my dad to know what's been going on he's an old man and I love my dad more than I resent my brother. He doesn't need to spend his last years worrying anymore than he already does. Yet he's always the one that looks good and everyone's eyes coming into the rescue and jumping into help when he really is doing more damage and helping it as long as he comes out smelling like a rose he doesn't take another thought about the difficulty he has caused with anybody else especially his little sister.
