Problem Avoidance Maintenance
Have only been in Airstreaming a few years and recently bought a new 28' Flying Cloud. These forums certainly are shortening my learning curve; but, shudder when I read all the leak issues.
Does anyone have a maintence schedule for re-caulking around windows, belt line moulding, etc. that prevents these problems before happening? For example, following a tip from an experienced owner, last Fall, I applied butyl rubber backed foil tape on top of the caulk on the roof penetrations to stop or slow down the inevitable uv deterioration of the caulking. On non-leaking windows, does anyone re-caulk for prevention?
Any other ideas in this area would be appreciated.
