Question Rear end sep. on his way... but

Hi,
I noticed today that the ply. at the far rear of my overlander is rotten. About 2" and just on door side. Really not too much.
So it won't take long to have to face a rear end sep. It's already loose about 1/32".
And so far, may be I'm leasy , but I don't feel in the mood to remove the bath to change a small piece of floor.
Even if I will have to do something to avoid major problems later.
Do you know if there is a kind of resin or any other wood hardener that I could use to reinforce that ply. Something that I could inject with a needle right into the wood?

Yes there is an expoy based product at the local hardware store. It is not the best but might get you by for a while. This is not the classical frame separation caused by the weak frame. You do need to seal up the area above the bumper compartment to prevent more water from getting in there and causing further problems. Vulkem or urethane based caulking compound is usually recommended.

I just posted about this stuff, usually called Rot Doctor, or Rot Rid, or Rot Rx.
Check this thread, I give pretty detailed instructions on how best to use it:

The top of the bumper is well seal. I checked all the plumbing to see if a leak could come from here and everything is tight. May be it come from somewhere above on the skin and a small amount of water run down against the shell. It is really located.
I'll will took a look at your thread.
Thanks for your time.

Overlander63,
from what you wrote it seems that your product might be the one I need.
Now I'll have to search for it... It's another story.
See you down the road.

I have used Rot Doctor with very good results. They also sell injectors. Also a epoxy based filler. The stuff is expensive but I think well worth it, much better than the hardware store stuff although you probably could use tht hardware store filler as a second choice and do the job.
