It seems there is a leak. I haven't found it with certainty. It might have been from a window. I installed this window in 2008, so I have only myself to blame.

There is evidence of water on one of the wood paneling walls, near the floor. This is below a window. I don't think the hole for the AC unit would be the source. I am sure of a leak on one of the 14" by 14" roof vents, and I already have purchased a replacement.

The replacement didn't go in yet, I ripped up a section of floor, roughly 1' x 4' had absorbed water badly. I ripped up some by hand, it had turned to sponge. I put in a new section of plywood, 2' by 5', and underlayment.

I have also noted that one of the studs coming down to hold up the black water tank has pulled out. The other end of the stud is buried under the white water tank. That is build in to the cabinetry. It doesn't look like I have access to the mount point for now. I'll have to come up with an alternate support, at least until I win powerball and do my "frame off restoration".

I mounted the new tires on the rear today. That made me happy.

"Can you fix it faster than it falls apart?". I think I was told that by a wise man in this group.

Happy motoring!
