Keeping water out of your horse trailer or RV is one of the most important ways to protect your investment. Water is sneaky and can get in for years without not just the roof, as it takes the path of least resistance. Damage can occur to the ceiling, walls, as well as the floor. The best way to preventing trailer water damage and rot is to check your seals often and reseal them as necessary.
Seals to check:
- Roof Seals
- Roof Seams
- All Trims, Moldings, and Rails
- Vents, Skylights, Roof Attachments
- Access Doors, Windows, and Ports
What to look for:
Water damage isn’t always seen right away which is why it is important to keep an eye on the areas it can creep in. Sometimes all it takes is a tube or can of proper sealant to touch up areas. If it goes too long it can take much more product and elbow grease to completely reseal. Or it can mean removing ceiling panels, walls, framing, and insulation, to repair the damage. Preventing trailer water damage should stay top of mind to mitigate these costs.
