I was walking around the mh this morning checking things out before the big storm hits and it came to me where the rain water might be leaking in at the floor level at the rear of the mh.

Years ago my dad had the spare tire mount removed from the rear bumper. The AS dealer installed a new aluminum panel on the lower rear just behind and above the bumper. The top edge of this new panel was put over the bottom of the panel above it instead of behind this panel. No caulking was used as well.

Rain water would run down right to the plywood floor.

I installed a section of flashing behind this "new" panel then caulked between the upper old panel and the lower new panel. Hopefully I've stopped this leak but the damage over 20 years has taken its toll.

That is an awesome video. I made that trip from Fresno 41 to the park and then out to 120. Great time of the year but I'm going back again this spring when there's water.

The colors were awesome last November. We also try to go in April...before spring break that is!

Early May is a great time, hopefully we'll get more snow so we have the Falls. I grew up near Fresno and didn't go there until just a few years ago. I missed out. Have you gone over Tioga Pass to the Eastern Sierra's? Some really nice country over there.

Loved the video, don't usually change setting on youtube but it was worth it for this one. Moved it to HD and slowed it down from rollercoaster ride at 'normal to .25.
Excellent slide show, Ansel Adams with color.
If you want a suggested improvement, get a black dash mat, my Honda Fit had reflection so bad at wrong sun angles making it impossible to see, made a sunscreen mat painted flat black placed on the dash and it was a great improvement.
thanks for sharing.

Yes, I've been over Tioga Pass a few times and over to the eastern side. I certainly agree its very beautiful over there.

I've even been over Tioga Pass in Dad's Toy back in '91 when my mom and dad owned the mh. We were going from Las Vegas to the Bay Area. I took this pic at a turn out up there at the top!

Since I upload the videos in HD, I wish they would play in HD without having to change the setting during playback. The fast motion doesn't look too good at low resolution! Great idea on the dash mat, the reflections in those big windshields gets to me while driving as well!

In the spirit of "registering" for the ticket sale next week, I'm scraping battery corrosion off the solar night lights that aren't working...sure wish I had a new MH project to work on instead! LOL

We are going to pass on the Burn this year and do a two week road trip to Yellowstone and national parks...probably cheaper and less to clean up afterwards.

I hear ya! BM is not a cheap experience. I'm hoping this year I have no major expense like I did last year with my VERY EXPENSIVE dash a/c repair a week before BM.

Well, another ticket fiasco this year. Ticketfly's system went down multiple times. The queue allowed people in before 12:00. No one I know got tickets this year. I think last year was the last BM for me!
