A motorhome doesn't have to be airtight in order to be weather-tight.

I've heard of people taking the motorhome to a truck wash and aiming high-pressure water at windows and skylights to see if they leak, but this is the first I've heard of pressurizing it and using soapy water, as if the motorhome was a flat tire.

Hi Protagonist,

Having a similar coach which is a similar age as the original author of this thread, I was trying to get across that the number one problem that will most likely be experienced are leaks from many sources. Identifying and repairing the sources of these leaks will be crucial to a happy and less troublesome motorhome experience. I did not state anywhere in my post about the necesity of having an airtight motorhome.

This service is increasingly available at many rv repair shops. For example:

RV LEAK FINDERS - Home
Sealtech Manufacturing Inc. - RV leaks bubbles recreational vehicles
Seal Tech Rainwater Leak Test

Cheers!

I misunderstood when you said "pressurize". I stand corrected.
