Bannana skin quick removal

All I wanted to do was inspect and clean out the insulation then POR the frame and button it up.

To remove the belt moulding would have been a pia.

I would reccomend removing the moulding and getting some sealant at the top of the banana skins as well as behind the molding. If your Airstream is made like mine that is where a fair bit of water was getting into the floor system. The skins are lapped on top of the side sheets.
