So it seems that when you get one thing working on an older RV like my old 88 Seville, two other things need fixing. I replaced my foot activated water flush valve on the toilet this trip. That was a fairly easy repair. Two screws, two hoses and a little Teflon tape, and she was as good as new. Just a note...I have the old Dometic toilet 910, and I went to the RV place to get the valve, and they wanted something like 38 bucks for it. I decided to check ebay before I bought one, and lo and behold, they had one on there for 18 bucks. It was the same one, in the sealed Dometic plastic bag, I had looked at, at the RV place. I don't mind paying a little extra for having an RV dealer close by, otherwise, businesses that you don't patronize are like a stray cat you don't feed.....they disappear. However, I refuse to pay double the price for something I can buy elsewhere.
Also, I need some advice and info folks, if you please. I have some water damage that occurred since my last trip up a couple of weeks ago. The damage is to the ceiling panel just to the right of the galley entrance door. There is a section of the ceiling panel that is a little soft and the white ( I am assuming ...plastic???) surface of the panel, in about 9 inches or so looks kind of like wood veneer when it buckles when it gets wet...wavy. So I went outside, got my ladder and found the end of a molding strip just above area of the leak that looked kind of suspicious...now I know you guys don't like to use caulk to do roof repairs in lieu of butyl, but my trailer is permanently situated and won't be moving around any more, so it is suitable for my purposes, I believe. Anyway, examined the roof/molding strip/entire area around the leak and hopefully repaired the leak...we'll see
So the question is...WHAT do I do, or WHEN do I do something about the interior. Should I wait until I see if the leak is fixed? Should I go in there right away for fear mold and mildew and rot will ensue...have ensued???? You've never failed me yet Sunliners...what's my next step?
