Speaking of leaks, time to tackle the shower leak...again.

What would you suggest for a replacement of the valve if I decide to replace it?

Oh the joy of trying to find something that will match. The only thing I can suggest is start googling pictures of bath/shower valves and see if you can find something that looks similar or matches. I've had to do a lot of that over the years as I've rebuilt my Argosy.

It might be worth the effort to take the valve to a good plumbing house and see if they have any suggestions.

Good luck!

Brad

I joined the U.S. Space Force so I thought it appropriate to convert the MH!

Way to go Jetson!

Might want to seal off the weep hole covers before launch.

I have to laugh at myself. We had these scrapers on our internal sales site and I thought I could use a new set
to use on the MH, trailers, ATVs etc. Well that will teach me to not check out the specs for the size. I suppose I could find something to use the large scrapers on...maybe the bottom of the storage bins that have been rusting for 30 years! Ha ha!

Occamís Razor and windshield leaks! I think it is clearly obvious to me now where the A pillar rain water leak is. What is it about human nature that we dismiss the simple and obvious?

It looks like the Grand Canyon under the driverís side windshield gasket. I donít think the small tube of sealant I have will go far but Iím going to give it a try. Iím sure it will begin raining before I get back up here in another month so I have to do something. Click image for larger version

I finished running the pex in the bathroom. I canít reinstall the shower valve since I ran out of crimp rings.

My Argosy had the same huge gaps. I used a special sealant designed for the task. Came in a tube used in a standard caulk gun. So far I've had no leaks from the windshield area.

I had a similar gap where the windshield gasket has shrunk and pulled
away from the frame. I used Sikaflex all around the windshield.

To push the Sikaflex into the gaps I used a plastic shipping bag cut
into strips. I laid the strips over the wet glue and pressed in into
the gap. I left the plastic strips on the glue while it hardened.
After the glue is hard you can pull the plastic strip off
the glue with no trouble.

With the plastic strips you can smooth the glue and push it around
freely. You can form the glue into a nice round shape which is
difficult to get just using a glue gun.

Dean, here's a link to my Argosy thread where I did a major rework of the windshield gasket.

No leaks so far
