Hello from STL area (on Illinois side)

Been lurking the forums for a while now, figured I'd say hi!
We just bought a 2006 Rockwood Roo 21ss hybrid and used it this past weekend.
Loved it so far, but it was a rough journey!
When we looked at the camper we were so excited by its size and light weight (3900lbs with options), that we completely missed all the water damage!
The entire shower ceiling was soft and sagging, a wall by the slide out had ripples.
Lucky for us, my brother in law is super handy and he was able to rip out the bathroom ceiling and put a new one up for us.
I went over the entire roof with lap sealant, then eternabond tape!
Still have a tiny leak, but I believe its the hinges on the bathroom vent that i missed. Will go over them next weekend.
For the slide out leak i put a patch job on with a small piece of flashing tape until my Proflex caulk arrives.

We had all the decals removed because they were pealing and we now jokingly call her, FEMA! before and after pics posted as well as the NEW bathroom ceiling!!

Appreciate all the posts and tips on here and look forward to contributing some myself!
