No holes in ours to drain, yet that is...Yeap that's what caused our floor to go the water running under the shell due to the lip that runs under the floor. the hinge door has tiny holes that is also letting water in to the toolbox and leaking to the braces and rotting them too.
Rebel Beck....yeah our patch work is turned in to about 2 by 4 feet sheet now or atleast to the eye bots .where the floor is in two parts already.Hubby going to weld in a couple more brace to help support the new peice of flooring. Glad to see there more people that have the same camper as us. sorry your having the same problem as us tho.
Our debate is the second brace is fine.My hubby is thinking about cutting the main two brace out to the second brace and replacing them.am worried,.... dont think thats a good idea.I think he should just tackweld a new peice on both sides to build up the steel. I hope this make since....what do you all think
