Installed new Camco vent covers on fore and aft vents. While I was up there, I noticed a gap in the Dicor on the forward edge:

I really dislike Dicor, so I think I will clean the front and rear roof seams and Eternabond over it. Any got an opinion on that?

I weighed mine. Looks like we're overweight as suspected. Under for both axles but over for GVWR.

The GVWR on my truck is 8800lbs. Steer axle weighs 4360 and Drive axle is 4600. The ratings are 5200 steer and 6084 drive. The camper axles are at 6260 (2x 3500 lbs axles and GVWR or 7805) for a total of 15220lbs.

Only over on the GVWR of my truck by 160, but we were short 2 people and 2 dogs.

The 8800 lbs rating us strictly a legal number though since I have the same spring packs as an F-350 but I have the smaller 2" rear block.

I'm not concerned.

Redwolf, I just did that to mine last weekend. I actually did the entire roof with eternabond including the front and rear seams. For the most part, I was able to scrape all the old dicor lap sealant off. The front and rear seems however, I couldn't really get much off so I went over it. On the rear, I had to use two 4" wide strips and on the front, I was able to cover it with one. I did use the dicor with a thin bead across the leading edge as I red somewhere it helps keep it cleaner but, it was down well regardless.

Follow the directions closely and the stuff is awesome, however it does stick to EVERYTHING so make sure you are careful when working with it.

It won't stick to silicone but, everything else, look out.

I had a small soft spot in the bathroom floor. I decided to go over all the vinyl with wood look alike strips that I purchased at the big blue box store. I had to repair the damaged part of the floor first and then decided to do the entire floor throughout the camper except for the living area. I even ripped up the bedroom carpeting and put it down in there. I contemplated putting newer carpet in there but, decided I would put this product down and can easily go over it if we don't like it after a few trips.

I was amazed at how different just redoing the floor looks. It was a little tricky to keep straight and make tight cuts was pretty important but, the product overall was easy to use and it looks great.

It took me almost two whole days to put down but, I did have the two little ones in and out with me so I probably could have cut that down a little bit.

I put a maxxair vent cover on the vent in the bunkhouse, and also added some Dicor that was needed at a seem on the front cap.

We bought a roll of eternabond at our dealer's store a few weeks ago. He let us choose how many feet we wanted and he cut it off a huge roll.

He advised putting some wax paper over the ends of the roll because (quote) If I laid this roll with the edges down on that glass counter top I'd have to break the glass to get it unstuck.



The CC badge had come out of DH's golf divot tool. He cut off a tiny corner of that tape to restick it. Uhhh, it's in there permanently now.
