Have RV Questions? Ask an RV Mechanic Online.
Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.
Can you attach a photo of the areas in question to your post using the paperclip icon. I do a lot of these repairs in my own shop, but each one is not exactly the same as the next and I would like to "see what you see" if possible before suggesting some repair techniques.
Good job on those photos! The best way to repair this is to remove that foldup end and take it apart and replace the old wood with new and you might be able to "press" out the fiberglass so it can be re-used again, but if not, you can replace it with new phylon or even some starbrite aluminum. Then you put the trim back on and replace it on the RV. We do quite a few like this in my own shop and this is how we repair these. If you need more please get back to me and I will make a phone option available for you as that might come in handy so you can discuss this with me over the course of the repairs.
Just checking back in to see if you were able to resolve this issue or do you still need some additional information from me here?
You can buy the starbrite material through most RV shops and it comes in 4 x 8 ft sheets. You can buy fiberglass phylon as well if you want to use that. This is not a real easy repair and if you aren't use to working with tools and such you might want to enlist the help of a good mobile tech or handyman. It will take more than one pair of hands. Hard to give you all the steps in this format as to how to do this.
Just checking back in to see if you were able to resolve this issue or not? If you still need some additional input from me please let me know. Thanks!
