Need a pic of 360ibl belly

Can someone who has a 360IBL take a picture of the underbelly where the sewer pipes come out (the down part, not the bend where you hook the sewer hose to).

I had my valves replaced and when they taped up the cut they had to make to replace the black tank valve, it doesn't look like they did a decent job putting the panel back. It isn't flat, it is bowing at the pipe and it has caused some big gaps between where that panel and the next forward panel meets.

I need to compare mine with another that hasn't been touched. I can post a pic in a few hours.

Ironically we had mice issues after getting the camper back this Spring and never did the year before and I'm thinking it is because of the gaps.

Thanks

Thank you. Not to be a pain but if possible, could you take them without that light reflecting off the belly? I've been so busy that despite the camper being in my driveway, I haven't taken a pic yet.

I can tell that the way the tech put mine back together is NOT like yours what so ever. Mine is sagging down as if water was sitting on top weighing it down. Because of this sagging, it is causing big gaps where it connects to the next panel to the front of the camper where I could easily stick 2-3 fingers in the gaps. The glare is reflecting right off where the panels attach so it's hard to actually see how they line up to each other (flat and even)

I'd like to print your pictures off and bring it to Camping World to talk with the Service Manager. They have been great but since they don't deal with the Coachmen line, they have nothing to compare to.

So I see what they did.. they cut the underbelly to get the valve replaced and taped it up. Not sure if the tape bothers me much as they said that was what they typically do. BUT what they did was tape up the panel UNDER the foam sealant instead of over so it is sagging down. I can push it up and see a little of the foam poke through. They then used the tape on the panel to tape to the pipe as if that will hold it in place. Also noticed a couple slices and exposed wiring.

Grrr... and it took me 15 months to get everything fixed..

Swung by CW today, spoke with the Service Manger (I've known most of them for 8 years). Showed him the pictures.. to sum it up, I am dropping it off tomorrow around 9am for them to fix the panel and spray foam all the holes and will pick it up at 2pm when I get out of work.

He said the cutting and taping is a normal process but it should have been secured properly, sealed and then the 2 cuts they had to make taped up. Should not have had tape all around the black pipe as if that would securely hold it in place.

Is that duct tape they used? It looks like it's falling off already. Duct tape will not hold up, and it'll fall off in no time. I got special tape where I had to open up and reseal the belly of my trailer. It stuck like crazy.
