Two Super-Useful Products to Keep On Hand
If your trailer's roof has ever leaked, or you have worries that it might, here is a product you'll be happy to have on hand:
Eternabond is a micro-sealant in tape form--like a roll of duct tape, only better--and many RV owners swear by it. It will bond to and seal any non-pressurized surface in minutes. Great product to keep on hand. The linked website has extensive information for your review. The site includes a store locator, but you also can order Eternabond directly from the site.
Jig-a-Loo is a spray-on lubricant in a can. It has water-proofing and rust-preventive properties, doesn't stain, and can be used on just about any surface. It'll lubricate your trailer's jack, its pull-out step, the awning rail, the door lock, the window latches--you name it. And, it'll also help repel water from exterior seams until you can get that old butyl tape replaced. (This is the putty-like substance installed to seal the seams; over time, it breaks down to create pinholes that can allow water to get in.) The product website gives you lots of ideas on how to put Jig-a-Loo to use.
As an adventuresome friend of Girl Camping Girl likes to say, there are few things as satisfying as having a good fix-it item at hand when you need it!
