Talking Leak tester photo

I thought I would show everyone Colin Hyde's leak tester in my trailer! Look at all the pretty bubbles! I am actually bringing the trailer home today after having her frame, floor, and axle done. Now I have an empty gutted trailer but at least I have a good "foundation"! Whew I have a long way to go before camping...

Interesting. So the objects I circled are the bubbles, and Colin's machine pumps air from the outside, presumably from a ceiling vent and pressurizes the trailer?

Cool!

All you need to do of course, is to completely strip the trailer, then it's a simple matter of doing what the factory did all those years ago: vulkem the leaky seams.

Yes Aage- it is a piece of cake when your trailer is stripped! Colin used an orange grease pen to mark the leaks...now it is my turn to hit it with vulkem.
