Another question. This time it is about fibreglass repair. I purchased a used Winnie MH 1995 Adventurer. There was / is a major crack on rear right side below dining area window. Must have been opened to moisture.
Took it into American RV in Olive Branch, MS. for repair in October this year. It appeared as repaired when I picked it up; but, after driving it to a camp site, I noticed that the crack has lengthened, but not opened as it was prior to the "repair". I returned the MH to American RV, and was told that it was not rtepaired correctly, and they would correct the problem for an additional $200.00 The correction involves cutting a large rectangle out of the side, replacing "rotted wood", then replace the insulation, and fiberglass skin. First of all if they think there may be wood stud decay, don't you think that it would - should have been noticed during the initial repair? Do you think that such a large "Patch" is necessary? The original repair was for a 8" to 12" horizontal cravck in the fiberglass skin. I thought at the time the MH went in fot the repair, the tech would stop the crack by drilling doles at each end of the crack to keep it from spreading....no such luck. The crack now is 18" +. As or the for the proposed repair, I have requested NO SQUARE CORNERS, My thought are the hole and patch cornets should have a radius to prevent spreading of possible longitudinal or latutdinal cracking as a result of stress caused by the inhierant flexabilty of the MH, coupled with vibration while underway.
What are your thoughts?
Thank you all again,
