CampLite Travel Trailers / roof seal leakage
April 11, 2017, 12:52:38 PM
Put 5,0.00 miles on unit and had a 1 inch or so rain storm with 2016 21' trailer parked level.  In waste basket I had between bed and wall captured 4.5 inches of rainwater.  And, due to a small miracle floor below was not wet.  A local trailer repair guy says an aluminum roof can leak even with the best sealant if the aluminum roof is not properly cleaned before sealant is applied. Any others experiencing a similar problem?
