update on our safari leaks:

I ordered from Vintage 4 tubes of the 636 TremPro..worked like a dream..NO LEAKS!!!..and we did find the source of leak: the Camping World guy had left his 'knee imprints' on the panel near the ribs when he installed the a/c..

We had severe storms here last night, and I woke up to Lake Bertha in the kitchen...

Terry,
Assuming you have bailed out by now, have you had any luck with the leaks? I just finished seperating all my windows to remove the ancient film and are reinstalling, but all need reseal and gaskets. Did find that leks drastically decrease whe the bloody things are open one notch. That is due to water getting in through glass. With windows open it drips outside. I had used a GE ALuminum product on the shell and so far so good, but reckon I will get some Vulcrum for future use. Just was curious if you solved your water problem.

So far, I've resealed the hole around the center fantastic vent, and had no more leak there--yet. Another puzzler is where the cloth wall cover by my bed gets wet when it rains. No fun waking up to a wet bed, I thought I got over that a few decades ago... But it doesn't leak every time it rains, it must be when it rains from a cetain angle, or a certain amount, or both.

Terry.

Check the sewer vent pipe gaskets.

Also check the rivets in the awning rail.

I had some leaks in my 1978 Ambassador. I took a utility knife and VERY CAREFULLY cut and scraped clean every single seam including battery boxes, windows, awning rails, lights, etc. I cleaned each seam with acetone on a rag. I used Parbond in an oilcan (with a pump trigger) type applicator and carefully laid a bead along everything I had scraped and cleaned. It wicked in and has sealed that trailer tight as a drum. It took about 2 days, with plenty of coffee breaks, to do it. Best thing I ever did.
