Wish me luck

Rain expected in my area tonight. I have recaulked some obvious vulnerable areas around windows but don't know if I got all leaks. Have to do something temporary around the sewer stack as it is off awaiting parts.

I don't know what it will come down to. I've heard that people have leaks around their Airstream emblems. Don't know how to fix these without tearing off interior skins which I'm not about to do.

Will I end up putting caulk on every rivet and seam? Time will tell I guess.

I feel real sick about buying this thing right now. Would feel much better if it stayed dry.

Don't feel sick

All the older units leak, just think it may have been years since a new sealant job was done and each time you find a leak and get it fixed just think how close it is the having it all reasealed and no leaks.

Ps: I myself have been feeling pretty sick this last week about a leak on the top.

We got a huge rain and the leak was deduced to a few drops in the belly pan. I did find some more leaks that need to be fixed however.
