Corner Repair and Rebuild

Duration: 30:08

Remember that issue with the floor? Turns out it was caused by a leak in the front left corner of the camper. I got the wall opened up, put in new framing, replaced the weird molding someone had put on with O.E.M. molding, and got it all buttoned up.

        Thanks for making these videos. Working on a similar project. Curious where you get materials from. I need some of the corner trim moulding among other things. Living in western Wisconsin near the Twin Cities.

    I’ve done some of this type of work on a Class C motorhome we own. Had to rebuild the entire over cab bed from bed frame through roof. Took me over a year to finish as I don’t have an indoor shop to use. Tarps and waiting for warm weather was required. Question… after you buff off the paint how do you repaint the damaged area? I’ve tried latex spray enamel but it comes off.

      Hello Steven,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      You will need to use a spray primer first on the exterior and then use auto body paint. You don’t want to use anything other than acrylic polyurethane when painting the exterior of RV’s. Once it is painted you then have to apply a clear coat to protect it as well.

    So what was done to fill the holes made by the wrong trim in the metal beyond the new trim?

      Hello Dan,

      Here’s what the experts had to say about your question:

      He has just filled the holes with the same sealant used along the metal trim that was installed. You want to put the nozzle against the hole and fill it with the sealant and then a little on the outside to cover the opening. You can smooth out the sealant afterwards by hand.
