DIP Basement fLOOD

I had a pretty good grey water over spill in my Diplomat,I have mopped the floors, dried the carpets, and removed the water in the bottom storage area.
My question is what is in the dropped ceiling area of this storge area? How hard is it to remove this part of the ceiling?
I am worried about a mold problem later.

Any info will help
Thanks

kd8iqn..
I want to welcome you to iRV2 and the Monaco forum. I cannot answer your question...but I know others will come along to do that. The one thing I can tell you is that the guys at Monaco said to help dry it with a fan..NO HEAT... for any dampness in the coach.

Again..welcome to the forum..we hope you visit & post often!


MM

JAck.....Some of the areas where the spill may have leaked into are accessible via some of your outside doors that are normally not designed to open, but can be opened by unscrewing them at the bottom. If not, you might want to put someting like a leaf blower or ShopVac into any opening that will direct air to that hidden area. Let it run for a few days.

Jack, You have the same rig as us. There is a door to look in as Diplomat Don has stated on curb side in front of rear wheels behind basement storage next to hot water heater. You will need a number #2 apex drive or screw driver to access the two screws. Once in side you can dry or flush area around your tanks. Hope we all of us on Irv2 have helped. As for RV parks remember Algonac State park has a 14 day limit on stay. Riverview has full hookup is closer to the water, is cheaper and cleaner.

Go to a tool rental shop and rent a commercial de-humidifier.
