Corner repair

Hey guys not sure if this is the right forum Since I do not own a Forest River lol Iím pretty new to the rv camper world as you can already tell. At any rate we recently purchased a jayco kiwi hybrid camper. Overall the camper seems in good shape. But, I did notice the one corner above the pop out was a bit soft. So yeasterday I pulled it out. The contact board was wet I removed all that. The corner where the ply wood was wet so I removed that. I went further to the ceiling and there was a small section that was rotted so I cut it all out the remainder of the ceiling ply wood where I pulled back the laminate was dry and strong. So Iím trying to figure out how to replace this. I donít want to remove the whole section of the ceiling. Just replace the area I cut out. I was thinking of cutting a section of plywood and using liquid nail to the styrofoam and putting new ceiling paper on? Unless I should try something else ? I did notice the water seems to be leaking from the aluminum bar that attaches on the roof so I plan on ceiling that up well tommorow. Like I said I wasnít sure where to post this but there isnít to many rv forums. Thanks

You and your SOB are welcome! (Some Other Brand).

The first thing to do is make absolutely sure that you've go the leak stopped. Then you can repair the piece you've cutout. The biggest thing to be aware of is that most adhesives are going to melt that styrofoam into nothing, so you'll need to find something that won't hurt the styrofoam. Good old Elmers white glue might be your best bet.

Not trying to run you off, but you may get more specialized help at the Jayco Hybrid Owners Forum
