Hey guys, I am going to bump this thread, because it seems to have the best info on installing the seals I have found.
So I am going to do the outer seals on my 1965 NCO, Inners are done. I have decided to ditch the flat pieces of (once) galvanized steel along the sides in lieu of this white coated aluminum awning rail https://rvstoredirec...w-white-4964313
1. Is there any reason I should use sealant like dicor or PV tape anywhere? I am thinking no, because the Pirelli seals against the aluminum bottom, keeping water from being absorbed/wicked up into the camper sides, and it will just be a mess to clean next time the seals are replaced.
2. I have a feeling I am going to encounter screws that don't grab as nicely as they should. My normal fix for stripped holes in wood would be to glue dowels into the old holes and drive the screws in again. I also thought about using a syringe to inject epoxy, but that might be a bit messy. Has anyone come up with a good solution, short of rebuilding the upper half of the camper?
Thanks for your time.
