Basement Delamination

Have been searching threads that discuss delimitation but most deal with taking door apart and re-glueing. Others don't seem to have the same door construction that I have on my 2004 Holiday Rambler (Vacationer). The delimitation is only one door (the door to the propane tank) and it is on both ends, but in the middle of the door. Gotta believe water can be getting in there during rain while driving which is why I want to fix it. But of course, this is Florida and it sure isn't rainy season (yet)!

The outside skin appears to be glued to the frame (1x1 tube??) and a backing piece is riveted to the frame. I'm thinking the only way to repair is to try to somehow clean out the existing glue (without opening a bigger gap) and re-glue by forcing it into the crack and clamping. Have no idea what Monaco might have used for glue and what to use that might hold?

Any thoughts would certainly be welcome!

Thanks, Steve

Drill out the rivets (be careful you don't drill through the front!! Use a drill collar!) and remove the inner skin to see what's going on. Replace the foam that's likely in there, seal up with silicone and rivet back together (or use self tapping screws if you'd rather make it easy on yourself!)
