This is where the majority of the water came in.  All joints are cracked open.

Small section close up of L/H side roof where it meets the wall.  The entire side looks like this.

You can kind of get an idea how it's cracked the whole way along.

Puddle of water when I opened door.  Some of it may have come though the ceiling, but I think part of it came through the door, as you'll see in the next pictures.

The big picture.  Initially it looks like the bulk of the water damage came from the cracked sealant around the roof vent.

If you look closely you can see the box wood around the vent is rotted.  More than likely all the wood that boxes the vent in will have to be replaced.

Rear Panels are peeling.  Even though there are no water stains in this area, I feel pretty sure that it has got wet.

Further evidence that the door window is leaking.  The door skin is slightly buckled near the bottom.  No reason to open this area up as long as the window gets sealed soon.

September 4th, removing and replacing roof vent.

Replacing the box that was rotted.  The box supports the area of the roof where the vent sits, and more importantly gives something for all the screws in the roof vent to attach to.

Beefing up the interior beams / roof to support the new stainless panels.

September 5th.  Putting the first stainless panel in.  The most critical panel was the one over the roof vent, so it went in first.  You'll see my "dead man" helping hold it up.  I had as many as 4 dead men at a time, even though I had a helper.

A different angle.  All these pictures unfortunately show a lot of reflection, so it's kind of hard to see how nice they look.

All the panels in.  There is still trim to be placed around the outer edges.  I won't have it until Monday.

This faucet was leaking externally as well as internally.  It was rusted in place & fought me the whole way.  The stud / bolt on the left side was completely frozen.

I showed that stud who's the boss.

The door with the broken strut.  I have received the exact strut from the manufacturer.  It will be replaced probably tomorrow.

Grease is almost the consistency of water.  Really worn out.

Found some dry rot on the inside of the tire.  I thought that was pretty unusual, unless someone  previously had this side mounted out since it's usually only the sun that does this.

Dry rot between the treads.  Once again, kind of unusual.  I'd almost swear these tires were sitting in the sun somewhere before they were mounted on the trailer.  All 4 tires have this.
