Water Leak Repair - Need Advice (Video)

Hey Everyone,

So this has been a great camper for us for 12 years, but now I find myself in the middle of a huge repair job, and I am looking for some input.

While the camper was in storage it developed a crack in the fiberglass near top corner of rear slide out. I covered with silicone as a temp fix until after winter, but the damage was already done I suppose.

So I began the process to remove the interior walls in the area, and found that it was much worse than I thought. I will be removing ceiling panel and possibly some floor in the area...

However, my questions are in the video, and are related to a few things I am unsure of regarding the structure of the camper. Also, how to attack the fiberglass crack, and finally any overall advice on how to clean the interior wet wood debris that is stuck to fiberglass from inside?

Here is the video https://youtu.be/WWt382lkz98

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The crack could be fixed just like on a Corvette. Depending on size and how deep.

You can liquid nail in a strip of bathroom shower stall available at home depot. Usually comes in a 4◊8 sheet but is cheap. For the foam inside that you tore out stop by a store " OFFICE DEPOT,, OFFICE MAX,, STAPLES. AND ask if they could save or have the foam from inside of computer packing or from printers put on display. Hot melt glue foam together to form the destroyed foam you took out. GOOD LUCK.
