Molding in shower

Well, I guess it is time to quit lurking, and start posting. I purchased a 20 ft. 1977 Argosy Minuet off of eBay back in November. Now that the holidays are over, and the weather if pretty it is time to get serious about the rehab. Iin the shower, there is some molding that joins the pan to the wall and another piece about midway up that covers another seam. There is a vinyl insert that covers the rivets. I can find the vinyl insert on a million sites, but can't find the molding channel it goes into. Does anyone know what that channel piece is called? Here is a picture of what I am talking about. Several pieces are missing and the PO just filled the crack with caulk. I would like to clean all of that out and replace it. I'm going to refinish the shower pan and liner but don't want to start pulling out caulk until I know I have the right stuff to repair it.

Welcome to the forums! Glad you decided to stop lurking and post. I am not sure what the pieces are called. I have all mine, but I do need to replace the vinyl inserts that you mentioned.

I see that channel on a lot of SOBs to cover the seams on the exterior. It takes a vinyl insert to cover the screws that hold it to the side walls. The vinyl comes in colors too!

I'll check with some of my suppliers to see if they carry it.

If I don't get back to this thread...remind me!!!!! (It's a little busy ths time of year!!! )

Take a look at the nose moulding that Inland RV has.

By the way moulding is something you want. molding is nasty and you don't.

I need my glasses changed, I thought the title was "modding in the shower". I'm not THAT fanatical about the forums...
The moulding should accept 1 1/4" vinyl insert when you finally get the pieces.

You had me thinking that was why I couldn't find it. But, moulding and molding must be interchangeable. Search Rockler or any wood working site and it is molding. Maybe it is a location thing Any way, thanks for the suggetsion I will check the nose moulding.

The metal bathroon molding, is no longer available.

We have the insert, that Airstream says was made for them.

Thanks Andy. I have a list of other things that I need to order from you! Do you know if there is a something that will work as a substitue for the bathroom molding? I don't mind replacing all of it, if I can find something that will work.

This doesn't belong under this heading, but on the subject of molding / moulding, has anyone had any luck finding the J-molding that goes around the wall panels. The original that is there is yellowed and brittle, but I'm sure it was orange at one time. Will Trim-lok edge trim work. I'm afraid it maybe too thick. This isn't a good pitcture since I was trying to get the fan and light, but you can see a little of it where the ceiling arches.

I am not aware of any other molding for the bath, that also has a good insert for it, that is also reasonably water proof.

Sure there are many moldings, but finding one that has a good insert and does not leak water, changes the story, quickly.

Why can't you clean up the moldings you have?

Andy

The "J" molding is no longer available.

"J" molding for mirrors is a little over 1/8 thick.

A metal shop could bend some soft aluminum for your bath. You could then paint it.

To ship 8 foot long pieces, in a tube, gets real expensive.

I could, but there are several pieces missing. Where the pieces are missing there a huge glops of molded (not moulded) caulk. Even if I clean out and replace the caulk it will still look shoddy.

Next best shot then, is for you to try and find a salvaged trailer some where.

That molding was used in the Argosy and Airstream trailers.

This may sound totally absurd, but for the non-existent J molding, would shrink tubing work? I was thinking I could slit it, place it around the exposed edge, heat it and it would shrink in snuggly. All it is there for is to hide the exposed edge and give it a finished look. Plus the tubing comes in all colors.
