Anyways some input would be greatly appreciated guys.

I had frame breakage at the pinbox side plates. After the repair I replaced that sheathing with a 1/8" aluminum diamond tread that came in a 5' x 8' sheet. It's one piece and I bolted it with 5/16" bolts. Then I sealed it up. The other pic is what I used to finish the seams. I got that trim material from here: https://www.adventurerv.net/hardware...baofmrinbp24j7

In your case it's important to find the leak while its apart or you're wasting your time.

wicked I would've never thought of using diamond plate! Thanks for the pictures, I just don't want to open a can of worms once I rip the fiberglass sheet off. If I was a betting man I'd say the leak is along the side, I think I got some rotten wood where the overhang meets the sidewall, its seperating but only way to find out is to rip er off and look, but thanks for the idea!! looks good too.

If you get it tore off post the problem spots and folks with experience can chime in to guide you. Alot of times a leak can develop on the roof from the roof/front cap seam. Also check around the side windows and trim. You definitely need to find the source before sealing it up. Underneath the sheathing is some insulation and frame structure. Nothing to be worried about there.

Wish I had better pics but this project started in Feb-March and was cold so I was in a rush to button it up. It did come out good thankfully.Click image for larger version
