I used the PU18 that was suggested by wizard on his website,we used that on the inside, very impressed with it. I had also bought Sikaflex for 10 from Go Outdoors, so used that on the outside. Probably should have used the PU 18 for both.

I can vouch for PU18. For less than a fiver a tube from a company in Redruth (via Ebay). Great stuff!

Hi,

Slowly beginning to get there!

Think we've cracked one thing then another pops up. We discovered last night that the leak managed to trace down to a large section of the floor and some of that will also need replacing :0(

Can anyone recommend any strong sealant remover? The old sealant is proving to be a little difficult to dissolve with the standard remover that we purchased.

Many thanks

Rebecca

Most sealant on older caravans is oil based so should dissolve with white spirit or use cellulose thinners very carefully if nothing else will shift it. If the floor is dry you can patch it with IsoponP40 filler, rather than mess about cutting sections out & replacing.

hi

if the floor is dry and spongy then use delamination fluid.

this is a relatively easy job. if I can do it it must be .

HI, keep at it remember you,re winning the battle. try warming old sealant with an hair dryer or hot air gun be careful if using hot air gun as they can be a bit too hot. scrape off as you warm it
