Lap seams: Acryl-R or ADSEAL?
We are resealing the seams on our 2006 19' Bambi and ordered the kit from Airstream. They sent Acryl-R, the applicator "gun" and two colors of ADSEAL. The ADSEAL works great around the roof fixtures and windows.
Lap seams are more difficult for me to do a nice job. I experimented using ADSEAL around one of the front windows after masking off with blue tape. The gap being about 1/8 inch for the sealant to adhere to old material that was thoroughly cleaned. The result was a nice clean line. The Acryl-R is messy in comparison. Question. Can I use ADSEAL on the lap seams all around the mid section? It also appears the lap seams were not originally sealed at the factory. Any moisture, rain or dew seems to be a problem. When the seam is depressed with a finger small drops of water issue from between the sheets. Are these side seams supposed to be "open" and unsealed? If not, has anyone successfully used ADSEAL on these seams?. Thanks. Don
