2 Part of the electrical problems, the convertor is also bad.
3 Obvious signs of water damage. The good news is it's not wet now, it appears to be old and we caught it just in time. Same with the next picture.
5 Well the picture just doesn't show the soft spot in the floor. There is no active rot and it is not worth cutting out. We will fibreglass probably a 2 foot by 2 foot section to level the dimple and to strengthen the floor, as well as seal it.
7 November 27, 2010. Opening the "soft spot" area in the left rear corner of the roof.
8 Opening the left rear corner to see how far down the water damage goes. I'm afraid it goes all the way to the bottom.
13 Here you can catch a glimpse of how the upper layer of the rotted wood is still glued to the underside of the rubber roof. This is a massive chore to remove.
14 Pulling loose handfulls of the rot away.
17 Here you see the very aft roof rafter. It is brittle and pretty much fell out when I touched it.
19 Looking down inside the back panel of the traier.
20 Also the back panel of the trailer.
22 Here is the back side of the receptacle in the bedroom that is loose. Here you see why it is loose, nothing left to hold onto.
23 Nov 28, Roof cut open for start of repair.
24 Now that everything is well dried, I have applied Kills primer. The layer of wood under the beams is actually the ceiling, so it has to be passified and saved, otherwise we'd be ripping a hole in the ceiling.
25 Putting in the new beams.
26 Dec 24, finally a nice day. Getting ready to close up the roof. Here you see the new insulation.
28 Metal bracing for the loose outlet in the rear left bedroom wall. The closets ends will be held in place by the new corner beam.
29 New corner beam and header beams.
30 Roof Sealed shut. Have to glue the rubber liner back on yet.
