Add to all that the fact that we know the black tank has cracks on the top, and we're looking at the infamous Full Monty ... just like Stef ... just like so many others on this forum.

I may have to start a new thread or photo album with the pictures. But it's not a problem financially ... my daughter doesn't *really* need to go to college!

Fun fun!

We sealed the decking with epoxy resin thined out to penetrate better. Seems to be doing quite well. I also put down a seamless vinyl floor BEFORE I put the shell on when I did the body off. The hope was to make an envelope to help preven any water getting to the wood. When things get bolted back to the floor the vinyl floor should act like a gasket.

So far so good. We still have a leak (interrior not installed yet) but the wood deck is dry.
