While at the Dogwoods & Bluegrass rally, I asked SoldierMedic to pressure test my rig. As most of you know, it is a process where he installs a fan contraption to put added air pressure in your unit and sprays soapy water on the outside to find leaks. They show up as bubbles.
Trust me, at a rally, it always draws a crowd.
After seeing a few other members units being tested – including a fairly new one –looking like a frothing mad dogs, I was pretty concerned. Turns out I had two leaks of substance.
One under a window here:
One where the plug was installed. No sealer - one of the many reasons I will never use that repair shop again…
Most of my rig looked like this – remember it is a 73 that is left outside all year long: No bubbles.
The one thing I did differently was to use Capt. Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure everywhere – It is a thin substance that pulls into seams by capillary action. You will have to do many applications of it and, if left to dry it is a buggar to clean off so stand by with a moist towel to catch drips. It even goes into horizontal seams.
I don’t own stock in the company but sure wish I did. You might give it a whirl...
