TheSoloAsylum July 27, 2012 @ 3:18 pm No luck needed, I can fix anything. I keep telling myself this because this is one of the hardest things I have ever tried to fix. Hows things with you bro? BreezyFilm August 9, 2012 @ 5:22 am oh man, that sucks! looking forward to a video of when its fixed Irondog420 August 9, 2012 @ 8:26 pm im in the market for a trailer with a leaky roof, if the price is right. i was looking at rhino lining or elastomeric paint, or both. i think i will avoid slide outs though, that looks like a can of worms for sure. im subbing to see how it goes! 😀 TheSoloAsylum February 18, 2013 @ 9:21 pm I’ll get some video of where the camper is at now. It’s all back together but I still have details to do like trim and weather striping. chiefmtn2 March 11, 2013 @ 5:08 pm Just picked up one of these projects ,..hope to have it roadable in a couple of weeks. TheSoloAsylum March 12, 2013 @ 3:28 am You can do it. I just got home from a three day camping trip sleeping 6 in this one. It was alot of work but the cost was next to nothing to repair. Keep in mind it will rain on the day you open the roof up! Good luck. Chris Humphrey May 8, 2013 @ 7:11 pm HOW DID YOU GET THE SLIDE OUT THAT FAR OUT ? IS IT STILL ATTACHED TO THE TRAILER ? TheSoloAsylum May 8, 2013 @ 8:55 pm I ran it out all the way, unbolted the arms and held the slide out up with a jack on wheels. Then I pulled the arms back in, lowered the slideout down onto them and pushed it all the way out again. It was tricky to do by myself. TheSoloAsylum July 7, 2013 @ 6:25 pm It’s weird that the video has almost 7K views and next to no comments. bbo40 July 20, 2013 @ 9:04 pm never had a camper that did not eventually develope a leak ! TheSoloAsylum July 21, 2013 @ 3:48 am There are new ones, and ones that leak. It’s about that simple. Thanks for the comment. TheSoloAsylum August 2, 2013 @ 9:09 pm no worries, its fixed and been on many trips since this video…. Marilyn Behm August 4, 2013 @ 9:29 pm Hi, I am looking for part II of the slide-out repair as my 1999 Terry Travel Trailer has the same issues as yours and I was hoping to see what all I needed to do to get it fixed. TheSoloAsylum August 4, 2013 @ 10:04 pm I never did a part 2 because there seemed to be no one watching this. All of the sudden it is getting 1000’s of views. I ended up making and replacing the beam that spans the slideout opening as the leak had rotted the wood. I also did a 4′ roof repair. It was 99% labor. Very little cost. Anyone with basic woodworking tools can do this…….get to work, and make a video so I can see what you are up against. TheSoloAsylum August 23, 2013 @ 10:40 pm No thanks, its been repaired and used many times since this. But I did consider it. Migool August 29, 2013 @ 6:20 am Are newer campers still made of wood or fiberglass. Does fiberglass get mold. TheSoloAsylum August 30, 2013 @ 12:53 am Yes new ones are built the same way out of wood and fiberglass. Fiberglass does not mold or rot like wood does. The weakest point on any camper is its rubber roof. That is what failed on mine and let the water in unnoticed causing all this damage. This one is repaired. David Storm September 3, 2013 @ 6:47 pm I’m doing the same repairs on a 06 Keystone Hornet BHDS. The small rear silde took me about a week doing it by myself. The large 14ft side slide has the same rot/damage as the video,but I also have about a foot on the main floor to replace also where the slide and floor come together. Don’t you just love the presses wood and cardboard they put these things together with!! Cheep Material for something that costs over 30K..!! Gee..What a Deal! TheSoloAsylum September 3, 2013 @ 9:56 pm Mine is all plywood floors and roofing. It is well built so it was worth saving. The down side is it weights 9200lbs with 800lbs of tongue weight. So one way or the other you get to shell out the cash. “The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys” Barclay's Mommy, Donna October 22, 2013 @ 5:29 pm Oh no! No part 2?!!?
