sealing a crack in siding

We just purchased a 1989 1740 and bringing it home in a couple of days. When I was looking at it, in the rain, it had a water leak just forward of the door and the ceiling and wall were wet.(this was very helpful in getting a great deal). I noticed a crack in the siding above the door and Im sure the vent needs replacement. I need to seal this up before I cover it for the winter. I Did some searches but diddnt see anything. The camper thing is all new to us so go easy on me . This is a great site, I have been lurking around for a long time and finally found an older 1740 in good shape. Thanks

Hi Sled,

On the siding crack above the door, if it looks like what is in the pic of this post, the fix is there as well. This is a semi common problem. I had it myself this summer. Took 10 years to show up, but it did.

Hairline crack on siding above rear door?

Congrats on your camper and welcome to club!

Happy Camping

John

The search feature which is part of our site is not the greatest. However it helps in some cases.

Our Admin made this custom Goggle search for us that works very well.
Google Custom Search for SOC

Give it a try using "siding crack". It really works well. Book mark the site for future searching.

Hope this helps

John

Yep a common place for them to crack my T1700 cracked there. Fill it with sealer and covered it with aluminum tape never did find any leaks there though. If you got a leak I would blame the vent.

Thanks for the help and advise. After getting it home and checking into it further it looks like the roof seams need to be resealed also. In the barn it goes for a little TLC inside and out.

I'm not sure what you mean with "roof seam" My T1700 had some water damage and some one along the line decided that roof tar was the fix so they covered the entire edge with tar. Well it can't leak there the roof is folded over the vertical edge and held down with the edge molding and a gross of screws there is no seam above the molding. The leak was the vent pipe!
