Congratulations on your new-to-you Sunline and welcome to the SOC!

The hole in the rubber roof can be patched with some Eternabond tape. Sunline used some thin "Budboard" under the rubber roof, but it wouldn't be possible to repair it, without removing the rubber roof first.

The musty smell inside the coach, is most likely mold between the ceiling and roof. That can be difficult to deal with, without taking part of the ceiling down. Others will be along, to offer more suggestions.

We also had a T-320SR. There was no slide topper over the slideout and water made it's way into the slide floor. If yours doesn't have a topper on it, I would highly recommend getting one. Also check the underside of the slide floor for spongy wood. It will be covered in a black plastic called Darco.

If you have any pictures of the Sunline, please post them. We would all like to see them!

If you think there is a chance of some mold or mildew on some surfaces one thing that will kill the mildew is Tea Tree Oil. A 2 ounce bottle in Walmart is about $8. Mix 1 ounce with 1 cup of water and put in a spray bottle and spray anything that may have mold/mildew. The smell is pleasant enough but it will drive you out of the area for a day or so. Bleach also kills mold/mildew but you don't want to use bleach on wood or fabrics ...... unless you also want to remove the color. Tea Tree Oil is safe on every surface.

Oh yes, congrats on the "new" Sunline.

Welcome! Once you have a musty smell in a trailer, 9.9 times/10 it's due to rotted wood, and there's no way to get rid of the smell until you get rid of every bit of the rotted wood.

Hi 2000,

Congrats on your camper.

Any chance of posting pics of the problem area? The roof hole on the rubber can be patched with Eternabond sealing tape.

Here is a post of mine on how to use it. Prep'ing the rubber before applying the Eternabond is critical for it to adhere. It is not hard to do, more of knowing to do it.
Eternabond Roof Seal Tape on a Sunline (Lots of pics)

The slide floor soft spot that EMD_Driver was referring to, see this post it will help explain where to look.
2004 & Older Slide Floors. Something you should check.

Now the wet and musty odor. This is a concern to fully investigate now. Now meaning soon and for sure before you seal up the area and the hole in the roof.

Water may have wicked it's way in the roof hole and be trapped up in the attic where there is insulation. And there is the bud board which is like heavy solid corrugate board under the rubber roof membrane that can wick water into it.

Suggest this, rent or buy one of those inspection cameras they have now a days. Like these. That is about the cheapest I have seen them. The one I have for work is well over $800 and about 5 years old and still black and white. Th newer ones are 1/2 the price on good ones, color, digital pics etc.

Wireless Inspection Camera - Great Deals on Wireless Inspection Cameras at Harbor Freight

If you can rent one or buy then go in the hole in the roof and look around. If you see wet anything or damp anything, you really need to deal with it now.

I forget what the bath looks like in the T320SR. I did sleep in one for a night just never went in the bath.... LOL...

Depending on what you find it may be an option to make a surgical cut in the ceiling on the inside, take down the ceiling luan board and then fix the wet stuff.

Some how you need to inspect to figure out how good or bad the problem is. The one thing we are fairly sure of, if there is any trapped water/moisture up there, it will not dry itself out with out help.

Hope this helps and good luck. We are here to help as we can. Pic's really go a long way in the help phase to see what it is you are up against.

John
