I thought I had found my front leak that rotted the floor by resealing the front windows. After a long(9 months or so ) period of time, I noticed the wood was wet and rotting again. I still had not put down flooring, so I'm talking about the plywood. It had looked dry all that time, so apparently it was a slow leak.
So I pulled off the interior panel near the rot and found 2 rivet holes on each side of the front window that were visible from the outside (small, I hadn't noticed them before) but concealed by the interior panel. The insulation was soaking wet. I pulled all of the insulation out, filled in the little holes and hope that solved the problem.
I am now on high alerts for leaks before I put my baby back together again.
So, question : what is the trim piece that runs across the bottom of the trailer? Is that a piece that needs to be sealed, or is it just "trim" over the exterior? Sorry I can't post a photo, but it's the one about a foot off the ground. Also, mine doesn't run all around the trailer-looks like part was removed (?). Anyway, does that trim need to be sealed?
Also, there are snaps that run across the back sides. What did those snap onto. They are on both sides. Thanks for any help.. It's been 2 1/2 years since I started this project and am starting to lose hope. But I'll persevere....
